AC/DC made it official with a new photo shared to social media showing singer Brian Johnson and drummer Phil Rudd back in the band and bassist Cliff Williams seemingly out of retirement.

The below photo, which also features guitarists Angus and Stevie Young, was accompanied by the simple caption, “ARE YOU READY? #PWRUP”

AC/DC has been releasing various teasers since Monday (September 28), but this is the first time the band has officially confirmed Johnson, Rudd and Williams are back in the band. Rumors surrounding their status in AC/DC have been swirling for literal years now dating back to August 2018 when photos surfaced of band members outside on the patio area of Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, the same studio where the band recorded their past three studio albums.

A new album has also been long-rumored, with said album reportedly serving as a tribute to late rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young.
