AC/DC shared a brief video clip that has us… thunderstruck. Is their long-rumored new album imminent?
The clip below shows the iconic lightning bolt from the band’s logo as a neon sign flickering as you hear an amp turn on. The clip was shared to AC/DC’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts at 8 AM ET today (September 28.)
The red neon lightning bolt look awfully similar to the one featured in leaked band photos that made the rounds earlier this month that featured singer Brian Johnson and drummer Phil Rudd. AC/DC fansite ACDCBrasil.net shared the photos and reported the images were shared via the band’s official website before being taken down. The photos appear to be from some sort of video shoot, but nothing has been confirmed or denied by the band.
This new social media clip will only add fuel to the rumors a new album is on the way. Rumors about a new AC/DC album date back to August 2018 when photos surfaced of Johnson, Angus Young and Stevie Young outside on the patio area of Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, the same studio where the band recorded their past three studio albums.
Among the reports/rumors that have surfaced since then involve the new album being a tribute to late rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young, retired bassist Cliff Williams returning to the band and that Johnson is singing on the new album. That album is also rumored to feature Rudd.
So far, AC/DC has yet to publically comment on album rumors.
