AC/DC's first live album in 20 years, Live At River Plate, is coming Tuesday November 20th.

AC/DC vocalist Brian Johnson was interviewed on June 5th by Bay Area rock station 107.7 The Bone. When asked about when fans can expect to hear a new studio album from AC/DC, Johnson said: "I'll be getting together with [AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young] in a couple of weeks, and then we're going to London to meet up with Angus [Young, AC/DC lead guitarist], hopefully. And that's usually how we'll start."
AC/DC are set to release Live At River Plate, a new Black Ice World Tour live CD/DVD on May 10th.
Live At River Plate will be the band's 6th live release which was filmed at the Buenos Aires gigs on December 2nd, 4th and 6th, 2009 in front of 65,000 people each night at the River Plate Stadium in Argentina.
The film was directed by David Mallet, who has been filming AC/DC for over 25 years, starting with Who Made Who which was also used in a feature film in 1986.
Brian Johnson, the band's lead singer, gave an interview in February confirming the latest release. However Johnson wouldn't be drawn on whether we can expect to see any live action from the band in a hurry. "After that we haven't made any plans," he said. "We just want to have a rest, because we were on the road for two years. We played in front of five million people, and we deserve a rest."
Accept is proud to announce the world premiere of their new music video "Teutonic Terror" from their forthcoming album Blood Of The Nations.
The video shot in March, directed by Dave Blass of Grid41.com promises to be the "Most Metal" Accept video ever. Asked about the "story, or theme" behind the video, the director said: "We had all of these cool ideas for stories about a post apocalyptic world, hot girls in Mad Max gear and cool visuals and the more we worked it the more we kept coming back to the basics... this is Accept, not Mötley Crüe, there are people all over the world that have waited years to see this band again, and every second that we cut away to some story that is really just filler anyway, we are missing what is really important. People want to see Wolf Hoffmann shredding his flying V, they want to see new singer Mark Tornillo singing a new Accept song, and they want to see the band ripping into the new track. So I said screw the story, get me some fire, get me some tanks and lets rock it."
