AC/DC's New Album Set For August Release?
Sony BMG has confirmed by way of a contest announcement that AC/DC's new album is set for an August 2008 release.
Sony is giving one lucky fan the chance to win a prized copy of this seminal record plus a copy of every album in the band's back catalogue (subject to availability). Five runners-up will also receive a copy of the new album too. The contest runs from now until Setpember 1, 2008, which means you'll have to wait for the new album past its release if you've won. You can get more details and sign up here.
Over eight years have passed since AC/DC last released "Stiff Upper Lip." The band has not set an official title or release date for their long-awaited new album, but the band is aiming for mid to late 2008 release. The follow-up to "Stiff Upper Lip" was produced by Brendan O'Brien (The Offspring, Rage Against The Machine, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, Audioslave and Velvet Revolver) and recorded at a studio in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
The new album will also be AC/DC's first for Sony BMG's Epic Records label, which reissued the band's back catalog a few years ago. Once the recording sessions for their new album are completed, rumor has it AC/DC will embark on a "farewell" tour later in the year, meaning that they could be breaking up or retiring for good. The band last did a full scale tour in 2001, but toured again briefly in 2003 before disappearing.
It was previously reported that AC/DC will sell their new album exclusively through Wal-Mart Inc. There has been no new information released on that matter to date, however.
