To set the stage, they just unleashed a new single entitled Shot In The Dark (https://acdc.lnk.to/SITD). The song sees the line up of Glasgow born Angus Young (lead guitar), Brian Johnson (lead vocals), Cliff Williams (bass guitar), Phil Rudd (drums) and Stevie Young (rhythm guitar) firing on all cylinders once again.
As part of the #PWRUP launch, last night iconic London landmarks Battersea Power Station, St Pauls Cathedral, Marble Arch & the Tate Modern were all powered up with AC/DC imagery.
For the album, the band reunited with producer Brendan OBrien who helmed Black Ice in 2008 and Rock Or Bust in 2014. Charged up for the next decade, AC/DC cut twelve new tracks for the album, proudly maintaining their signature sound and all of its powerful hallmarks.
POWER UP will be available in multiple configurations that will excite collectors and die-hard fans alike, including digital, CD, and deluxe versions.
The limited edition, one-of-a-kind deluxe POWER UP box is the ultimate fan package. Hit the button on the side of the box and watch the flashing neon AC/DC logo light up while the opening bars of "Shot In The Dark" blast out of the built-in speaker. Inside the box is the full CD package in a soft-pack with a 20-page booklet that features exclusive photos and USB charging cable allowing the box to remain powered up and on display. The vinyl LP will be pressed on 180 gram vinyl and housed in a gatefold jacket. Limited edition red, yellow, silver and picture disc variants of the LP will be available at select retailers nationwide, as well as the bands online store. The album will also be available on all digital platforms and limited edition cassettes. Check out the full tracklisting below.
