AC/DC preparing to record in Vancouver with Brendan O’Brien

AC/DC are preparing to begin recording new music in a Vancouver studio with producer Brendan O’Brien. reports the band’s gear has arrived at the Warehouse Studio in the western Canadian city (see photo above), with studio time booked from May through July.

O'Brien teamed up with the Aussie rockers to produce their 2008 album, “Black Ice”, at the same location.

Following a statement by AC/DC earlier this month that guitarist Malcolm Young is taking a break from the band due to health issues, singer Brian Johnson confirmed the group planned to enter the Vancouver recording studio as scheduled.

"We are definitely getting together in May in Vancouver," he told the Telegraph. "We're going to pick up some guitars, have a plonk, and see if anybody has got any tunes or ideas. If anything happens, we'll record it."

On April 16, AC/DC issued a statement regarding the band’s status and future in the wake of rumors surrounding Malcolm’s health and their possible retirement.

“After forty years of life dedicated to AC/DC, guitarist and founding member Malcolm Young is taking a break from the band due to ill health,” posted the band. “Malcolm would like to thank the group’s diehard legions of fans worldwide for their never-ending love and support.”

“In light of this news,” they added, “AC/DC asks that Malcolm and his family’s privacy be respected during this time. The band will continue to make music.”
