‘Ace of Spades’ on tour: The new AC/DC cover
It was a good night for the band that started it all, but it’s not quite over yet.
After the death of the late Angus Young, the group’s new album, Ace of Sparses, is out on May 25.
In an interview with Billboard, lead guitarist Mike Patton, bassist Dan Auerbach and drummer Joe Walsh sat down to talk about the album, the writing process and how the band was dealing with the death.
“When you’re in a band that’s been around for 20 years and has been around all that time, and you’ve gone through a lot of highs and lows, it’s a very good thing that you go through those,” Patton told Billboard.
“And it’s also a very bad thing, because it’s all very difficult for the people that have gone through those experiences, but we can all look at this band and say, ‘Wow, what a great, great, band.
What a great time to be in the band.'”
The band also talked about the band’s creative process, from the writing of the album title to the album artwork, and the band itself.
“There’s a lot going on behind the scenes,” said Patton.
It’s not what we say in our interviews, so we just want to make sure we’re doing it the right way.””
What’s great is that people can just sit back and say this is what we’re trying.
It’s not what we say in our interviews, so we just want to make sure we’re doing it the right way.”
It’s a tough sell, but the band has already been through a rough patch recently.
In May, the band released their first solo album, The Devil Went Down to Georgia, which was a disappointment to fans and fans of the band.
“This was just a very, very rough album,” Patton said of the record.
“The band is still making great music, and it’s really, really good.
But that was just one record.”
But this time around, the record was far from a disaster, and Patton hopes that the fans will still be attracted to the band once they hear the new album.
“It’s going to be an easy sell,” Patton added.
“When we started writing the record, we didn’t want to go into it thinking, ‘I’m going to make this record with these five guys.’
We were thinking, We’re going to write this record for a bunch of people that we know, and we’re going get as many of them on this record as we possibly can.”
As for what fans can expect from the album as it goes out on vinyl, Patton shared that fans can look forward to seeing more of the classic songs from the band, but also the new material.
“Every song that’s on the album is really good,” he said.
“I think that’s a good thing for fans, because I think there’s a real desire for these songs to be on the records that they’re listening to now.”
In addition to the new release, Patton also revealed that the band is in the midst of recording a new studio album, which will be released in May.
He also confirmed that he and Auerbitt are working on a new album as well.
