The first new AC/DC track in six years is arriving this Wednesday.

The band confirmed the news in a flurry of Monday morning social activity, including a second teaser video that features a healthy dose of an Angus Young guitar solo.

AC/DC revealed the first clip of "Shot in the Dark" last Thursday in a teaser released just days after the band confirmed it had reunited the lineup from its last studio album, Rock or Bust, including Angus and Stevie Young on guitars, Cliff Williams on bass, Phil Rudd on drums and Brian Johnson on lead vocals.

PWR/UP is said to have been built around previously-unused guitar tracks from late-AC/DC co-founder Malcolm Young, who retired from the band in 2014 due to dementia and passed away in 2017.

It's understood that the band began the project in the summer of 2018, when the quintet was spotted at Warehouse Studios in Vancouver, British Columbia, though the band members haven't yet addressed any specifics regarding the new record.

The Aussie rockers began showing signs of activity in September. Johnson confirmed that he was in touch with all of his band mates, despite having left the band during the 'Rock or Bust' tour to attend to a medical issue.

Then late that month photos "leaked" of the band on what appeared to be a music video set.
