AC/DC Release New Song and Debut AC/DC 101

(antiMusic) AC/DC's real PR peeps dropped a line to let us know that fans can get their first full taste of the new AC/DC album: Fans can now listen to AC/DC's "Rock 'N' Roll Train", the first single from the forthcoming album Black Ice, on and acdcrocks.com. The highly anticipated track was unleashed to the world as Thursday. The video will premiere next month.

Black Ice, the band's first studio album in eight years, will be released on October 20th. Black Ice features 15 new tracks from brothers Angus and Malcolm Young, Brian Johnson, Cliff Williams, and Phil Rudd. The album was produced by Brendan O'Brien.

The Band's web folks sent this over as well: "Rock 'N Roll Train" is just the first page in the latest chapter in AC/DC history. Don't fear! ACDC.com's got you covered with the entire history book. Check out our new feature, AC/DC 101, for an interactive, in-depth look at each decade of the Acca Dacca annals.
