AC/DC have announced the official release date of their new album, Rock or Bust as December 2nd, 2014. They have also announced the retirement of Malcolm Young and that the nephew of Angus and Malcolm, Stevie Young played rhythm guitar on Rock or Bust and will be heading out with the band on a world tour. Here is the statement below from AC/DC on their website:

‘Rock or Bust,’ the highly anticipated new studio album from AC/DC, will be released December 2, 2014. Featuring 11 new tracks and recorded in Spring 2014 at Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, BC, ‘Rock or Bust’ finds AC/DC once again working with producer Brendan O’Brien and mixer Mike Fraser.

“Rock or Bust” is the first AC/DC album in the band’s 41 year history without founding member Malcolm Young on the recordings. Earlier this year AC/DC released a statement explaining that due to illness, Malcolm would be taking a break from the band. Unfortunately, due to the nature of Malcolm’s condition, he will not be returning to the band. AC/DC will undertake a world tour in support of ‘Rock or Bust’ in 2015. Stevie Young, nephew of founding members Angus and Malcolm Young, plays rhythm guitar on ‘Rock or Bust’ and will accompany the band on tour.

Starting September 27, Turner Sports will provide fans a sneak peek of the new track ‘Play Ball’ as part of the 2014 Major League Baseball Postseason campaign. Check back here for more.


We will continue to keep you updated and we wish all the best wishes and good health to Malcolm. Malcolm was instrumental in making an influence in so many musicians lives and will continue to inspire a whole new generation of rock n rollers!
