——————————————————————————————–

From Bravewords.com:

A reliable in-house BW&BK source has confirmed that AC/DC’s forthcoming album will in fact be called BLACK ICE. It will be released on October 27th. The new single, ‘Runaway Train’, will be released in late August. A mammoth world tour will start in America in November.

BLACK ICE is AC/DC’s first studio album in eight years. It was recorded in Canada at Bryan Adams’ studio under the production guidance of Brendan O’Brien. It will be the band’s 15th studio album. Their last album was STIFF UPPER LIP in 2000 but the band maintained a profile with DVD.

———————————————————

Other reports online have the new AC/DC album being sold as a Wal-Mart exclusive along the lines of similar promotions done with The Eagles, REO Speedwagon, & Journey. No further information is available on this connection with Wal-Mart but as the release date gets closer, more information will be officially released. Bravewords is usually on the mark with official news so watch their page closely…..

Just another quick heads up…..of course nothing is completely official until the band says so. When AC/DC issues their press release, I will post it here at HMA. If any of the information turns out to be different, I will amend all related posts with links to the official information. The good news is that AC/DC has a new record coming and a tour being planned…..that’s a good thing!

    it’s been a while now. since any new stuff hd made it out, im more than ready for it.. now if we can get some new GNR.. That would be more than awesome… love ac/dc and gnr

  5. Metal Misfit says:

    I love the name. I didn’t bother with Stiff Upper Lip, but I’ll probably try this one out.

  6. said says:

    what “reliable in-house BW&BK source”? uh? anybody can say “oh, i’ve got a source”

  7. Don Coleman’s song “Women, Whiskey & Rock’n’Roll (celebrating the life and spirit of Bon Scott)” has been airing in 16 countries so far with the latest Network (BFBS) airing it to 12 countries at once.

    The song has been well received globally and has been on AC/DC’s website with the ‘homage’ video to Bon Scott (chosen by the band) for about 7 weeks and has had about 7000 viewings so far. http://www.acdc.com/fromtheband

    It has received requests for copies from people like Bob Daisley, former bass player for Ozzy Osbourne, who was a friend of Bon, and also Vince Lovegrove who was a bandmate with Bon in The Valentines ( Vince introduced him to AC/DC). Susan Masino, published author of “Let There Be Rock” and Doug Thorncroft, President of the WA Bon Scott Fan Club both love the song and many of the ‘cream of the crop’ Aussie Legends who knew Bon say it’s a ‘ripper’ that Bon would love.

    You can also check out the song at the dedicated website at: http://www.myspace.com/doncoleman

    I can not wait !!!!!!!!!!!!! If seen them 3 times and they are awesome, I think This Album will be a Treat

  9. Matt says:

    Awsome!!!

  10. bryan says:

    i’m so jacked for the cd and the tour. Though i didn’t mind stiff upper lip, this one is going to be way harder

  11. Chuck says:

    AC/DC is back!!!!!!!! This cds gonna rock

  12. GJB says:

    I can’t wait for the new album!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s gonna be awesome! I didn’t get the album Stiff Upper lip cause it didn’t really sound that good but I have all the albums before that and i’m posetively gonna get this one!

  13. billy k says:

    oct 27 th is a monday.

  14. Angus says:

    It will be released on the 28th in the States but the 27th everywhere else. For those of you who haven’t picked up Stiff Upper Lip yet, I’d recommend it, it’s a bit more on the bluesy side of things but it’s still a rockin’ album! Can’t wait for this one!

    And by the way, that website isn’t anything official…the album name still hasn’t been confirmed from the band. But everything else it true.

  15. Just so everyone knows…..

    If there is any change to the info, I will post it on HMA and I will place the links in related posts.

  43. pcollett30183 says:

    I have listened to the first single, Rock and Roll Train. And I was quiet disappointed and don’t get me wrong. I love AC/DC and I am a die hard fan, but i am not sure that i am going to enjoy this album as much as the others.

  44. Dryden says:

    Ive listened to these guys since i was a baby…im now 14…never heard a better band than them…dont get me wrong i like other music, but NOTIHNG is as good or can even compare to AC/DC…I have to say that Rock N’ Roll train is not their BEST work but damn, it’s still good.

    ROCK ON AC/DC CANNOT WAIT TO BUY YOUR NEW ALBUM!!!!
    KEEP THE SONGS COMMON GUYS…
    ROCK AND ROLL WILL NEVER DIE
    And It aint noise pollution!
