AC/DC made an announcement (Wednesday), but it’s not a tour.
In celebration of the 40th anniversary of their album Highway to Hell on July 27th, starting (Wednesday) they’re posting several rare videos from their Plug Me In DVD box on their YouTube channel.
The first video is “Highway to Hell” from the Dutch TV show Countdown from July 13th, 1979.
M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold says his whole family got a kick out of his character in the new Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 online update, Operation Apocalypse Z.
In a video released by the band, Shadows says, “I totally get a kick out of it. My kids get a kick out of it — something they can actually relate to. When my wife saw the character, I think I could tell she thought the character was a little bit better looking than I am in real life, so that kind of hurt my feelings a little bit.”
He adds that recording his dialogue for the game is totally different than working on songs for the popular series. “I don’t really see singing in the studio as acting. This was definitely acting. I was trying to put myself in the position of being dropped in with a hundred people and having to fight for my life. So I was able to capture my own personality within the character. And it’s been a total trip.”

GRETA VAN FLEET: The Next Album Will Be Different
Maybe they are going to try to NOT sound like Led Zepplin with their next album.
Guitarist Jake Kiszka say, “We’re working on something quite different, I suppose. It’s interesting, ’cause we never know exactly what an album’s gonna look like; it can only be so premeditated. But as it sort of unfolds now, it’s an example of where we are musically right now. So it’s definitely much different than Anthem of the Peaceful Army.”
The album is expected out late this year.
