AC/DC premiere new video “Play Ball,” the first visual from the band’s forthcoming studio album Rock or Bust which can be seen below. Shot in London in October 2014, the clip was directed by the band’s longtime collaborator David Mallet. “Play Ball” is currently Top 5 at Active Rock and #1 at Classic Rock radio.
In a recent review of “Play Ball,” Rolling Stone raved that the track is “Classic AC/DC through and through” and “proves that nothing can stop hard rock’s most reliable band.”
Rock or Bust is available for pre-order now via ACDC.com and all digital retailers. Fans who pre-order ‘Rock or Bust’ ahead of its December 2nd release date will receive an immediate download of the track “Play Ball.”
Rock or Bust features 11 new tracks and was produced by Brendan O’Brien, with Mike Fraser mixing. The album’s cover art uses a developed 3-D lenticular cover, which gives the illusion of the band’s iconic logo exploding as the album is moved in different directions. Rock Or Bust is the band’s first album of new material in six years, following their immensely successful Black Ice, which entered charts at #1 in 31 countries and has sold nearly 8 million copies worldwide.
