On hearing the news, Angus Young commented, “A very big thank you to Denis, and all at Sony Music Australia, and everyone else in Australia who’ve put in their time, effort and creativity to get PWR/UP to #1! Also a big shout out to all our fans, old and new. You are, and always have been, our guiding inspiration.”

Charged up for the next decade, AC/DC cut twelve new tracks for PWR/UP, proudly maintaining their signature sound and all of its powerful hallmarks. For their seventeenth full-length album, the band reunited with producer Brendan O’Brien who helmed ROCK OR BUST in 2014 and BLACK ICE in 2008.

The album has already received critical acclaim from The Age with Martin Boulton saying “Kick-started with scorching opener ‘Realize’, this first new music since 2014’s ROCK OR BUST album has all the hallmarks of classic AC/DC, a band that has defied death, hearing loss and the many rigours of life on the road, to not only endure, but continue thrilling their army of fans.”

Boulton continues “AC/DC is not just a band to its fans, it’s a thoroughly reliable commitment to the power of guitars, of drums, of rock, and to never compromising. And Realize’, like all 12 songs on PWR/UP, is credited to Angus and Malcolm Young. Some things, it seems, truly never change.”

AC/DC are back in 2020. PWR/UPis outnow.
