AC/DC Has Possibly Recorded At Least 7 Songs For New Album
AC/DC have recorded at least 7 new songs for their new album in fall 2018, ACDCFans.net administrator Jem is reporting.. The new material is supposed to feature Angus Young, Brian Johnson, Cliff Williams, and Phil Rudd after the lineup slowly withered away during their last tour on the Rock or Bust album with Rudd leaving after finishing recording the album due to legal issues and getting into trouble with the law, Brian Johnson being dismissed after having hearing issues in early 2016, and replaced by Axl Rose, while Cliff Williams announced his retirement at the end of 2016.
Meanstreak posted, “This confirms that there was not an album recorded then, but only a few songs.”
Jem responded, “No it doesn’t Meany. It means that tracks were recorded, I was told 7 had been laid down and that was during the process not an end total, obviously I can’t verify that number. I don’t know how many were recorded or what they were for, for sure. I still don’t know for certain that the release won’t happen.”
It’s been heavily rumoured that AC/DC could tour next year with rumours swirling that they could play at Slane Castle next year.
Legendary Guns N’ Roses Guitarist DJ Ashba
Former GUNS N’ ROSES and current SIXX:A.M. guitarist DJ Ashba will host and perform at “The Devil’s Bash” on Thursday, October 31 at Ashba Clothing at The Strat Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Also taking part at the free celebrationwill be SIN CITY SINNERS and undisclosed “friends.”
Ashba joined GUNS N’ ROSES in March 2009 following the departure of Robin Finck and stayed in the band until July 2015, when he announced his departure. It was around this time that the band was working behind the scenes to bring back Slash and Duff McKagan.
Three years ago, Ashba told SiriusXM‘s “Trunk Nation” that there were “multiple reasons” why he left GUNS N’ ROSES, “the biggest” one of which was that “I needed to get back to my roots, back to what I really truly believed in, and that was playing songs I helped write with [SIXX:A.M. bandmates] James [Michael] and Nikki [Sixx].”
During the “Trunk Nation” interview, Ashba aclaimed that he was asked by Axl Rose about being part of GN’R‘s “Not In This Lifetime” tour, but that he declined.
“Axl [Rose] called me and he really wanted me a part of the reunion, and I turned it down,” Ashba said. “I felt if Slash is coming back, that’s great — that’s what the fans want, and I can go off and do what I really wanna do now… And we left [off on good terms]; everything is good. And I couldn’t be happier for the fans out there. I’m a fan. Half of the band reunited, which excites me.”
Ashba is currently working on the debut album from his PYROMANTIC project.
Although he originally formed PYROMANTIC as a collaboration with Michael, the project has since morphed into an Ashba solo thing, with James revealing he was no longer involved.
