AC/DC is reportedly set to record a new album. Brian Johnson revealed that the band is about to begin recording new music and as planning a fortieth anniversary tour.
Johnson said on 98.7 the Gator, "Well, you'll be the first one to know. Really, because we've been denying anything, 'cause we weren't sure…But I think we'll be going into the studio in May in Vancouver. Which means, we should be getting ready."
He added of the planned tour, "It's been 40 years of the band's existence. So I think we're gonna try to do 40 gigs, 40 shows, to thank the fans for their undying loyalty. I mean, honestly, our fans are just the best in the world, and we appreciate every one of them. So, like I said, we'll have to go out, even though we're getting a bit long in the tooth. You know what?! It's been four years [since we last went out on the road], and I'm really looking forward to it."
