All signs are pointing to AC/DC‘s first album in six years being named PWR UP. NME reported that only the day after spotlighting a blinking neon thunderbolt on the band’s social media platforms, the new “PWR UP” declaration has popped up in a few UK newspapers and uniquely, “on a poster located outside Sydney, Australia’s Ashfield Boys High School — where guitarist Angus Young spent his teenage years.”
Frontman Brian Johnson told us that he’s noticed one thing when watching footage of the group shot years ago: [“There’s one important thing I think is very important, is we’ve never changed. The band has never, ever changed. As one interviewer said to Angus (Young), ‘Y’know, you’ve made 15 albums, Angus, and they’re all the same.’ And Angus said, ‘That’s not true. We’ve made 17 albums, and they’re all the same.'”] SOUNDCUE (:14 OC: . . . all the same)
- All signs are pointing to AC/DC‘s first album in six years being named PWR UP — with the phrase being posted on various UK newspaper ads — along with a poster outside guitarist Angus Young‘s high school in Sydney, Australia.
- Back in 2018 a report from JAM! magazine claimed a “reliable source inside the AC/DC camp” indicated the band will utilize previously unreleased guitar tracks from late co-founder and rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young on all the songs.
- The magazine’s website reported, “Five years prior to the (2008) Black Ice LP, AC/DC’s 15th studio release, Angus (Young, guitar) and Malcolm Young . . . literally wrote hundreds of songs, many were recorded and have been stashed away until now.”
