AC/DC got together back in May for the first time since 2010’s Black Ice, but were short guitarist Malcom Young, who was “taking a break” due to health issues. In a statement on his motor racing website late last night, — while he was thanking fans for their support of his TV series – Brian Johnson mentioned future plans for the band.
It said: “Cars That Rock was my first ever go at presenting a TV series – and even though it may not show, i was real nervous. So am very relieved that you all seem to be enjoying it. “We hope to bring you more shows in the near future but, of course, there is the slight distraction of my day job with AC/DC – and it looks very likely that we will be on the road again before the end of the year. “So stand by for more music – and more Cars That Rock.”
Rumours earlier this year of Malcom Young’s illness sparked more rumours of the band possibly retiring after 40 years together. It was later confirmed that studio sessions were to take place with Canadian producer Brendan O’Brien in Vancouver. Johnson said in April: “We’re going to pick up guitars, have a plonk and see if anybody has got any tunes or ideas. If anything happens we’ll record it.”
