AC/DC WORKING ON NEW MATERIAL, SAYS BASSIST

AC/DC bassist Cliff Williams has told BackstageAxxess.com in a new interview that guitarists Malcolm and Angus Young are currently writing songs for the legendary Australian band's next album. But Williams said that there's still a long way to go, explaining, "(There is) nothing in the works right now (as far as recording). We're still getting over the last tour, so we're just hanging out and doing stuff. The guys are writing material and when they've got some stuff together, they'll give us a holler."
Asked how the band's creative process works, Williams said, "(Angus and Malcolm) get a bunch of ideas together. Some are more together than others -- and then we'll all hit the studio or a little rehearsal room and we'll kick it around with a producer. And then we get in a studio and record, and that's kind of how it runs.".
AC/DC's last album, Black Ice, was released in 2008 and was followed by a nearly two-year world tour.
Malcolm Young told Classic Rock magazine last year, "I've been doing some jamming on some song ideas but I do that all the time, as do the rest of the band . . . I think we need a couple of years to recuperate and work on it a bit more."
