AC/DC Members, Including Brian Johnson And Phil Rudd Appear To Be Recording Together

Much speculation has surrounded AC/DC and whether they would ever make new music together, following the death of Malcolm Young. A few days after a Canadian journalist claimed that Stevie Young and Phil Rudd were spotted in downtown Vancouver, now former singer Brian Johnson and Rudd have been photographed together at a music studio.

If this is true this would be huge news for the rock world, but it could also be for another project such as a Johnson solo album, as nothing has been confirmed. With the death of Malcolm Young, plus the departures of Johnson, Rudd, and bassist Cliff Williams now retired, fans have wondered if sole remaining founding member Angus Young would keep the band going or decide it was time for AC/DC retire.  Rudd was replaced the last few years in the band by Chris Slade, with Axl Rose stepping in for Brian Johnson. We’ll keep tracking this story here at Ghost Cult.

Reformed Floridian rocker-badasses Devil Gone Public have partnered with Ghost Cult today to premiere their new video for the single ‘Blood Debt’. The track comes from their forthcoming debut album, Smokehound, due later in 2016. You can watch the video at this link or below:

 

Commenting on the album, frontman Garrett Moore said “This album comes from a culmination of our various musical backgrounds and influences, having grown up on Classic Rock, our roots are deep in Rock N’ Roll and that has a lot to do with our style and sound. When we set out to create this album with Rob Caldwell, we knew we wanted to write a heavy, groovy, sludgy metal record and spent a lot of time trying different tones and worked hard to make it something we’re all proud of.”

Produced by Rob Caldwell (Iron Reagan, Goatwhore), Smokehound saw Devil Gone Public also tapped Jake Duncan (Maylene and the Sons of Disaster) to lay down guest guitar parts on the album. The band plays a frenetic mix that calls to mind Every Time I Die meets Lamb Of God meets The Chariot. Before reforming the bands star was rising under the watchful eye of mentors like Brian Johnson (AC/DC) Scotti Hill (Skid Row), and Donald ‘Duck’ Dunn (Booker T, The Blues Brothers).
