In an interview with Backstageaxxesss.com, AC/DC bassist Cliff Williams talked about new AC/DC material. While the band has not hit the studio yet, Williams says the group's legendary guitarists are currently engaged in the writing process for the band's next album.
AC/DC's 'Black Ice' was released in 2008 receiving favorable reviews from critics and fans. Followers of the Australian legends have been craving a new album ever since and although no official plans have have been made the mere mention of new songs is a great sign.

Williams said, "Nothing in the works right now, we're still getting over the last tour, so we're just hanging out and doing stuff. The guys [guitarists Angus and Malcolm Young] are writing material and when they've got some stuff together, they'll give us a holler."
Williams explained, "[Angus and Malcolm] get a bunch of ideas together. Some are more together than others — and then we'll all hit the studio or a little rehearsal room and we'll kick it around with a producer. And then we get in a studio and record, and that's kind of how it runs. The guys, I'm sure, are putting their time in but they're not ready for [the rest of the band to get involved] yet."
In a 2012 interview with Classic Rock Magazine, Malcolm Young touched on his composing sessions. "I've been doing some jamming on some song ideas but I do that all the time, as do the rest of the band. We are still working but we had a long rest between 'Stiff Upper Lip' and 'Black Ice', so I think we need a couple of years to recuperate and work on it [the next album] a bit more."
