AC/DC have started writing material for a brand new album.
It's in the early stages according to bassist Cliff Williams, who revealed their current plans in a video interview which you can see below.
"The guys [Malcolm and Angus Young] are writing material, and when they've got some stuff together they'll give [the rest of the band] a holler," he said when pressed about the progress of new material.
Many bands write together, but Cliff says brothers Malcolm and Angus Young tend to kick off the writing process for AC/DC:
"They get a bunch of ideas together - some are more together than others - and then we'll all hit a studio, or a little rehearsal room first of all, kick it around with a producer, and get in a studio and record. That's how it runs.
"Malcolm and Angus have put their time in, but they're not ready for us yet."
Last August a friend of the band said they were planning to tour Australia behind a brand new album (via Music Feeds), but now it sounds like we'll be waiting a little longer before we can hear new material from Australia's best export.
"Something's going to happen at some point," Williams says. "Hopefully we'll get out there sooner or later. Right now, hang in with us and we'll be with you when we can."
