The AC/DC hype train just keeps rolling.

On Friday, the Australian hard/rock legends shared a new teaser clip for “Demon Fire,” a song included in the band’s anticipated new album Power Up. The video looks like some sort of futuristic-themed racing battle, but we’ll have to wait a bit for the full reveal …

It sure sounds like this track, another riffy anthem showcasing the band’s signature sound so effectively, will be the next single from the album.

Power Up will be released on Nov. 13. Here’s its track listing:

1. Realize
2. Rejection
3. Shot in the Dark
4. Through the Mists of Time
5. Kick You When You’re Down
6. Witch’s Spell
7. Demon Fire
8. Wild Reputation
9. No Man’s Land
10. Systems Down
11. Money Shot
12. Code Red

When released, “Demon Fire” will accompany “Shot in the Dark,” the band’s new song/music video shared last week.

The video for “Shot in the Dark” packs as much energy as you’d imagine given the song’s customarily riff-first approach; after the iconic AC/DC logo illuminates, the band — vocalist Brian Johnson, lead guitarist Angus Young, guitarist Stevie Young (nephew of Malcolm), bassist Cliff Williams and drummer Phil Rudd — assembles on a sound stage and takes over.

When released, Power Up will be the band’s first since 2014’s Rock or Bust.

Of course, Power Up doesn’t feature Malcolm Young, who passed away in 2017. But the album was very much made with his memory and influence in mind, so much so that Malcolm receives a co-write credit on each song on the album:

“This record is pretty much a dedication to Malcolm, my brother,” Angus told Rolling Stone. “It’s a tribute for him like Back in Black was a tribute to Bon Scott.”

In a recent behind-the-scenes video about the album, Angus and vocalist Brian Johnson reflect a bit on Malcolm and how he’d be proud of the album, with Angus noting that his brother was always interested in keeping AC/DC going:
