VIDEO: AC/DC issue Rock Or Bust animated 3D cover

AC/DC are sharing video of an animated 3D cover for their forthcoming album, “Rock Or Bust.”

Due December 2, the project is the Australian band’s first studio album in six years and is the first in the group’s legendary history without founding member Malcolm Young.

Earlier this year, AC/DC released a statement explaining that due to illness, Malcolm would be taking a break from the band.

Angus and Malcolm’s nephew, Stevie, handled rhythm guitar on the album after Malcolm stepped away from the group to deal with ongoing health issues related to dementia, according to his family; he is now officially retired from the band.

AC/DC recorded the project at Vancouver’s Warehouse Studio with producer Brendan O’Brien (Aerosmith, Pearl Jam) and engineer Mike Fraser.

The group will launch a world tour in support of “Rock Or Bust” in 2015.
