Australian hard rock band AC/DC may have accidentally confirmed the rumors about a comeback and the band’s plans to release new music. Or was it done on purpose? A Brazilian AC/DC fansite claims that the band’s official site showed pictures of the band playing together. The pictures were online for a brief time last week and were quickly taken down.

According to the site, the photos showed the band’s drummer Phil Rudd and guitarist Stevie Young together on stage for the first time. The site claims the photos were taken out of a video shot in the Netherlands in February and due to be published soon. Furthermore, a new album is set to be released by the end of 2020.

But the biggest news may be the return of vocalist Brian Johnson to the front. Johnson left the band in 2016, suffering from an extensive hear loss. He was replaced on tour by Guns N’ Roses’ Axl Rose.

Rumors about an AC/DC comeback have floated around since 2018. In July,  Dee Snider, former Twisted Sister lead singer claimed a new AC/DC album is on the way and but was delayed because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
