With Brian Johnson at the front...

AC/DC could be set to release a new album in 2020, with a tour to follow.

The Australian hard rock outfit have endured a rocky road over the past decade, with guitarist Malcolm Young passing away.

Phil Rudd's much-publicised legal issues reached a head in 2015, while Brian Johnson's hearing loss led the frontman to retire.

According to Australian broadcaster Eddie McGuire, however, AC/DC have reached a place where both new material and a full tour is in process.

Using his Triple M Melbourne show to spread the news, he said: "My mail is there will be a new album released by AC/DC (in) February/March this year, but also that AC/DC will be touring Australia October/November 2020."

Continuing, he explained: "And after a lot of work and a lot of technical research, they have been able to get a hearing aid for Brian Johnson, who will be out front."

Phil Rudd "maybe" returning to the drum stool, said the broadcaster, adding: "They’ve had a few changes over the journey."

Wait and see...
