Brian Johnson of the legendary AC/DC has revealed that the band will head back to the studio this year. In an interview with the Florida radio station 98.7 The Gater, the frontman revealed plans to celebrate the group's 40th anniversary. Johnson stated “...I think we’ll be going into the studio in May in Vancouver. Which means, we should be getting ready.” This would be the band's first album since 2008's “Black Ice.” He also told the station that the band are planning a new tour to commemorate their anniversary.

Speaking on the matter, he says “So I think we’re gonna try to do 40 gigs, 40 shows, to thank the fans for their undying loyalty. I mean, honestly, our fans are just the best in the world, and we appreciate every one of them. So, like I said, we’ll have to go out, even though we’re getting a bit long in the tooth. You know what?! It’s been four years [since we last went out on the road], and I’m really looking forward to it.”
