Brian Johnson Is Reportedly Back with AC/DC

January 30, 2019

In 2018, photos of Brian Johnson and Phil Rudd standing outside Warehouse Studios in Vancouver, where AC/DC has recorded many albums, suggested that both members were back with the band. Now California grindcore rockers Terrorizer is reporting that Johnson is officially back with the band.

According to a post to their Facebook page, Terrorizer thanked their fans and staff after wrapping up their European tour. They also revealed that after briefly running into him at the airport, Johnson is officially back with the band. "We ran into Brian Johnson from ACDC at the airport today after the flight home and we asked him about the rumors of him being on the new ACDC album and he said 'Yes' and that he is 'Sick of denying it'. So that was a cool surprise ending to the tour."

In 2016 Johnson had stepped down from touring with AC/DC due to serious amounts of hearing loss, approaching total deafness. Meanwhile, in 2015 Rudd had been replaced by drummer Chris Slade due to drug possession and making death threats to an employee.
