AC/DC preview new single Shot In The Dark

AC/DC are sharing a video preview of their new single, “Shot In The Dark”, ahead of its official premiere on October 7.

The band’s first new music since 2014’s “Rock Or Bust” sees the return of singer Brian Johnson, bassist Cliff Williams and drummer Phil Rudd to the lineup led by cofounder Angus Young, with his nephew Stevie Young on rhythm guitar.

Johnson famously left the group’s tour in support of their last album in 2016 after being advised by doctors to stop performing in arenas and stadium-sized venues immediately or risk total hearing loss; Axl Rose stepped in to help the band complete the final dates of the trek that ended with the retirement of Williams after the final show in Philadelphia, PA in September of that year.

Rudd was featured on the 2014 record but a series of legal issues in New Zealand sidelined the rocker from the accompanying world tour, which saw the return of Chris Slade in his place.

AC/DC recorded the forthcoming project in Vancouver in 2018.
