For a band that began their career by putting out 12 record in the first 15 years of their career, AC/DC have become almost invisible as a studio entity in the ensuing 22 years. Despite still having massive global appeal, they've only released three records since 1990′s 'The Razor's Edge,' and nothing since 2008′s 'Black Ice.'
Hopes were raised back in January when singer Brian Johnson said that he hoped the boys would get back together at some point this year. However, a recent interview with guitarist Malcolm Young put the kibosh on dreams of a new AC/DC record appearing anytime soon.
Brian Johnson has been doing some jamming on some song ideas, something he does on a regular basis, as does the rest of the band. But they had a long rest between 'Stiff Upper Lip' and 'Black Ice,' so it looks like we can expect nothing new from AC/DC until 2013 at the earliest.
