Listen: AC/DC’s New Album ‘Rock or Bust’
The Australian rock legends’ first album in six years is now streaming in its entirety
AC/DC have never been ones to give up on rock ‘n roll and if their best-known songs such as “It’s A Long Way to the Top” didn’t prove it, one only needs to look at what went into making their latest album, Rock or Bust, which is slated to release worldwide on December 2nd on Sony Music.
The Aussie rockers are now ready to go on tour without two of their key members. Drummer Phil Rudd was arrested and later released on the charges of attempting to procure a murder [the charges were later dropped] in November and guitarist Malcolm Young, who is suffering from dementia, is in full-time care in Australia. Despite the setback, the band, still going strong with vocalist Brian Johnson, guitarist Angus Young, Malcolm’s nephew Stevie Young filling in on guitars and bassist Cliff Williams, are set to launch Rock or Bust.
Rock or Bust, the followup to 2008’s Black Ice, remains to be signature AC/DC – arena-sized rock and scorching solos courtesy the [still] schoolboy costumed-Angus Young. While their lead single “Play Ball” got fists pumping, the entire album is heavy all the way, to keep the headbangers happy. Listen to Rock or Bust in its entirety below and tell us what you think of AC/DC’s return to form.
