...and a 40th anniversary tour

AC/DC aren't so much a band as a force of nature.

The Australian group famously lost frontman Bon Scott in 1980, yet returned to define hard rock in a globe-smashing, record breaking manner.

2008's 'Black Ice' saw AC/DC returning to their early, hard-rockin' boogie sound while the tour which followed found the group on ferocious form.

Taking part in a rare interview, singer Brian Johnson has intimated that a new album could be forthcoming.

Speaking to Florida radio host Andy Preston, the frontman said: "One of our boys was pretty ill, so we didn’t like to say anything and we’re very private about things like this… But I think we’ll be going into the studio in May in Vancouver. Which means, we should be getting ready."

Continuing, the frontman explained that a 40th anniversary tour could be set to launch shortly: "I think we’re gonna try to do 40 gigs, 40 shows. To thank the fans for their undying loyalty."

Well, they'd better hurry up - AC/DC released their first single in 1974 meaning that the shows should launch this year.
