PHOTOS: AC/DC preview Play Ball video

AC/DC are sharing photos from the video for their new single, “Play Ball”, ahead of its release this week.

The clip for the lead single from the band’s forthcoming album, “Rock Or Bust”, was directed by David Mallett and shot in London in early October without drummer Phil Rudd, who singer Brian Johnson told fans had been called away at the last minute to deal with a family emergency.

AC/DC brought in Bob Richards (Shogun, Adrian Smith Band) to handle drum duties for the shoot for “Play Ball” and the album’s title track.

"They have never come out with any pretense to be anything else than the best rock and roll band in the world," said Mallet.

Due December 2, “Rock Or Bust” is the first AC/DC album in 6 years and first without founding member Malcolm Young, who retired from the group to deal with ongoing health issues related to dementia.

Angus and Malcolm’s nephew, Stevie, handled rhythm guitar on the album and will join the band for a world tour next year.
