AC/DC confirm Malcolm Young's retirement, 'Rock or Bust' New Album Dec 2nd and world tour in 2015

Hundreds of thousands of AC/DC fans will be feeling mixed emotions about now. They have been given a gift and a hammer blow; there will be a new album by the band (and a "world tour"). But founding rhythm guitarist, and bedrock of the band's hard-driving sound, Malcolm Young, 61, has retired.

                            As they were... AC/DC in 1976, with Malcolm Young at far left.

AC/DC's long-time manager, Alberts Music, issued a brief but packed statement on its website excitedly announcing the new album - Rock or Bust - through Sony, with a release date of December 2nd. Just in time for Christmas.

"'Rock or Bust' is the band's first studio album in six years and features 11 new tracks," the
statement said. "The album was recorded at Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, Canada and finds AC/DC once again working with producer Brendan O'Brien and mixer Mike Fraser. "

There will also be a "world tour" in 2015 to promote Rock or Bust.

                                    AC/DC founding guitarist Malcolm Young has retired.

But what rock and roll Santa gives with one had he takes away with the other. Alberts also announced Rock or Bust will be the first album AC/DC have ever made - and they've made a few, 17 to be precise - without Young.

Young's departure is final. "Unfortunately, due to the nature of Malcolm's illness, he will not be re-joining the band ... Steve Young, nephew of founding members Angus and Malcolm Young, plays guitar on Rock or Bust and will accompany the band on tour.

The news appears to confirm longstanding rumours Young is in care and so ill he would probably never tour again.

From AC/  Starting September 27, Turner Sports will provide fans a sneak peek of the new track ‘Play Ball’ as part of the 2014 Major League Baseball Postseason campaign.
