OK, it definitely looks as if there will be some AC/DC activity in the near future.

On Monday, the iconic hard rock band‘s social media pages shared a video featuring a lightning bolt logo crackling to life and sputtering with electricity:

What could it mean? A new album?

The most recent album from the band was 2014’s Rock or Bust, the band’s 16th studio album to date.

Roughly 24 hours later, a new AC/DC-related website has popped up, as well as another crackling social media post:

And, consistent with the theme of the lightning bolt crackling to life, it’s called PWR/UP — and if you visit it, you can submit your email address and stay tuned for … whatever the band has in store.

Continuing the mystery outside of the internet, this poster apparently turned up outside guitarist Angus Young’s old high school:

Regarding the musicians that make up AC/DC at this point, that is indeed a further mystery. The PWR/UP website obscures the band members’ names:

Who makes up AC/DC in 2020 is notable and the subject of much interest among the band’s fan base.

Online rumors ran rampant last week after a series of photos — featuring featuring vocalist Brian Johnson and Phil Rudd — briefly surfaced on the band’s official website before being taken down. Johnson left AC/DC in 2016 due to extensive hearing loss issues, while Rudd was replaced on one of their recent tours due to various legal issues he faced in 2015.

Additionally, Twisted Sister icon Dee Snider revealed in late July that the next AC/DC album was recorded and finished — and delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic:

“This is gonna be a miracle of technology,” Snider told ABC Radio“What will be achieved, the reuniting of the band that we know for one more album, is gonna to be uplifting and heartbreaking at the same time. Because nothing goes on forever. But this is the ultimate ‘one more time.’”

So it’s pretty obvious that something is up … we just don’t know what, exactly, it is … yet. Stay tuned.
