NEW ALBUM    OCTOBER 30

THE ALBUM

Malcolm: We have 18 songs among which there are 3 classics. The new album will certainly contain 12 songs, the other ones should be released as bonus tracks on maxi singles or should never be released. Only the best ones will be released.

A TITLE

Malcolm:No title or picture cover, we sort out these details in the last few days.

Geoff Banks (Malcolm and Angus rodie): There are many great songs in this album, for me AC/DC is the greatest band in the world.

RECORDING

Brian: I sing with an HF microphone and without hearphones to feel the music better.
Angus: Brian's voice is very powerful and solid.

RUMORS

What about the rumor concerning a tumor ?
Brian: False, the only operation during the last years was a filling on a teeth.

DEMOS

Malcolm: The songs were written in Holland, in Australia and in my homestudio in London. Angus played drums and I tried new riffs on guitar, Angus is a great drummer.

RELEASE DATE

Malcolm: The album will be ready on November but we will release it on January or Febuary 2000 because on November / December 1999, the TVs, the radios will only talk about the new century, and it's hard to promote and album during this period.

The record company wanted to release the new album before Christmass but the band prefer to wait a little more THE OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE IS JANUARY 15.

TEXT FROM RISING POWER (Thanks)

 

ALL THE RUMOURS ARE FALSE    OCTOBER 3

The latest issue of the French magazine "HARD ROCK" reports that all the rumours on the internet are false. The director of the magazine "Philippe Lageat" recently met the band in Vancouver, Canada, but he doesn't want to say anything about the new album right now.
Everything will be revealed in next months issue of
"HARD ROCK".

Thanks Cyril, RISING POWER

 

NO NEW ALBUM UNTIL NEXT YEAR      October 3

AC/DC's camp is keeping the usual tight-lid on the details surrounding the band's forthcoming album, their first since 1995's Ballbreaker, but this much we know: Although slated for a late November release on eastwest/Elektra, the album will likely not see stores until early 2000, according to a spokesperson for the band at Elektra. The CD remains untitled at press time.
