Hells Bells, AC/DC is back!

The Australian rock legends behind classics ranging from “Back in Black” to “Shoot to Thrill” just dropped a brand-new music video for “Shot in the Dark,” the band’s first new song in six years. The track is a single off “Power Up,” their upcoming 17th album and their first since longtime guitarist and songwriter Malcolm Young passed away in 2017.

Directed by David Mallet, the video features AC/DC’s Angus Young, Stevie Young, Phil Rudd, Cliff Williams, and Brian Johnson rocking out on stage to “Shot in the Dark.” Young described the new song in a statement: “It’s a strong single from a powerful rock album. You’ll be able to hear it and know straight away that it’s AC/DC. That’s what we’ve always strived for.”

AC/DC has joined the Stern Show multiple times over the years, even appearing in Howard’s film “Private Parts.” As fans may remember, Young and Johnson sat down with Howard in 1997 and rocked the studio with a stripped-down version of “You Shook Me All Night Long.” Check out their live performance (below).

AC/DC’s “Power Up” arrives Nov. 13.
