For those about to record, we salute you



Acdc The boys are heading back to work - at last. AC/DC is all set to return to the studio to record their first album since 2000.

Bassist Cliff Williams told that a new album and world tour are in the works.

"We're going to get together and get in the studio and I fully expect we will (tour)," Williams said.

Though the Aussie rockers have re-released and re-mastered some of their classic LPs in recent years, there hasn't been a new studio disc since "Stiff Upper Lip."

Singer and frontman Brian Johnson told Stuck in the 80s last summer than the Young brothers -- Malcolm and Angus -- were working on new material. In the meantime, Johnson and Williams have been performing together and separately to keep in shape.

"I'll get up and sing with a band, maybe do a song. That's nothing compared to belting it out, full-tilt boogie," Johnson said. "With AC/DC, [shows lasted] two hours, 25 minutes and it was a killer because we didn't have drum solos. ... When I look back on it now, how the hell did I do that?"
