AC/DC Shares ‘Shot In The Dark’ Video
The first look at the new/reunited AC/DC lineup performing together comes via the “Shot In The Dark” video. “Shot In The Dark” is the lead single from Power Up, an album set for release on November 13 through Columbia Records.
Longtime AC/DC members lead guitarist Angus Young, bassist Cliff Williams, vocalist Brian Johnson and drummer Phil Rudd are joined in the band’s latest lineup by rhythm guitarist Stevie Young. Johnson, Williams and Rudd each return to the group after departing under different circumstances.
The “Shot In The Dark” video was filmed in Amsterdam by longtime AC/DC video director David Mallet. AC/DC used the opportunity to give the lineup a chance to perform the band’s live set including “Back In Black,” “Hell Ain’t A Bad Place To Be” and “Shot Down In Flames” according to an interview that aired ahead of the video’s premiere.
“The band was playing really well,” said Cliff Williams as per Louder Sound. “Brian was singing really well. ‘How about we do some shows?’ ‘Sure, let’s get the ball rolling.’ And this damn virus hit. Everything was put on the shelf. We’ll put this record out and see what the future holds. Hopefully, it’s shows. That’s what we’d love to do – even if it’s just a handful, just to get out there.”
“We’re ready to play,” added Rudd. “We’re ready to kick some ass – seriously. I’ll get a chance to show you guys what’s going on with all of us, because I’m not done yet.”
