AC/DC are sharing behind the scenes footage from the video shoot for the title track to their new album, “Rock Or Bust.”
Filming took place at Black Island Studios in Middlesex in early October, with fans arriving from all over the world to be a part of the video.
“Seeing all the fans again,” says singer Brian Johnson, “all the superfans, who have been so faithful over the last 40 years… it was a touching moment because Malcolm [Young] not being there….and they set off a roar for Malcolm that touched us, y’know.”
Malcolm Young retired from AC/DC earlier this year following health issues related to a diagnosis of dementia. The group brought in Malcolm and Angus Young’s nephew, Stevie, for their first album in six years.
Drummer Phil Rudd was not on site for the filming; headlines would later see Rudd arrested by New Zealand police on multiple charges stemming from an alleged incident the week before the London shoot.
AC/DC brought in Bob Richards (Shogun, Adrian Smith Band) to handle drum duties in Rudd’s place.
“Rock or Bust” has since debuted at No. 3 on the US Billboard 200 and on the UK album charts while snagging a No. 1 in Australia.
