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."

"We're just a bunch of pals from the projects, still. Even though we've done well, we still have the same roots that we stick by that we did when we had nothing, basically. And that's the work ethic. And it has to be right for the boys to do anything. When we're sitting down and [we're talking about], 'Can we do this? We're not gonna be a pale shadow of our former selves?' We'll talk about it and make sure that we've all got it. We're just five pieces of a card, and if one of us is not really [able to perform at 100 per cent], the whole thing would just collapse, I think."

AC/DC also plan to tour, but maybe not as before. "Well, I think it wouldn't be like the last one," Johnson says. "That was two years... just nuts. For guys our age at the time, to tour the world to sell-out audiences everywhere, it gives you a good feeling. And the great thing was to look out into the audiences and have a look at the generations of people... I mean, it was unbelievable... Kids there that were 7-8 [years old], teenagers..."

Malcolm Young recently confirmed to Classic Rock magazine that AC/DC are working on the follow-up to 2008's Black Ice. But he said fans may have to wait longer than expected, and he is wary of Johnson's plans.

"You know what Brian's like. He just says things and then walks away," Malcolm said. "It'll be a little while a year or two anyway."

He added: "I've been doing some jamming on some song ideas but I do that all the time, as do the rest of the band. We are still working. But we had a long rest between Stiff Upper Lip and Black Ice, so I think we need a couple of years to recuperate and work on it a bit more."

Cool, hopefully it will be a little heavier than their last.

Count on it being the exact same drivel they've been writing for longer than you and I have been alive.

Nevertheless, I look forward to it. AC/DC is one of the few bands I trust to release good stuff. Others being Motorhead and Rush.

If you like their sound then you definitely won't have to worry about being disappointed with any new material they release. I personally wouldn't rate any of their albums above a 6 but at least they're consistent.

I thought their last album was really tame, and a boot too mellow for me, hopefully this one will be a little harder.

I don't really care about the newer stuff, not even that much about the old stuff either. Sure, I used to love the old albums, but now I just like their live DVDs and Cds and whenever I get the chance (which hasn't occurred often) I'll see them live.

I'd also love to see them live, but they usually sell out in 5 seconds.

I'm not even exagerating either.
