The Vancouver Sun reports on the AC/DC recording rumor

AC/DC reportedly dined here recently

First new album in nearly a decade

Australian hard rockers AC/DC are reportedly in Vancouver to record their first new album in nearly a decade.

The website metalunderground.com is reporting the band is recording at the Warehouse Studios in Gastown. No official sources have confirmed it: The Warehouse has a policy of not saying who is recording there, and no one at AC/DC management in New York was available for comment Monday afternoon. But a blogger named Kathleen on metalunderground.com wrote that she "just saw them dining at Yew Restaurant in the Four Seasons on W. Georgia!"

This wouldn't be the first time AC/DC recorded in Vancouver. They came to town in 1990 to record The Razor's Edge at Little Mountain Sound with the late Bruce Fairbairn, mixed a live album from their 1990-91 world at the same studio, then recorded their Stiff Upper Lip album at the Warehouse in 2000.

Hope it's true, it's been waaaay too long a wait since Stiff Upper Lip. An article appeared last week on an aussie music site - www.themusic.com.au stating that Brendan O'Brien will be producing the new album. O'Brien is a producer, engineer & mixer with a bloody good reputation in the music industry. He was a one time member of the Georgia Satelites, he's produced some of their music and has worked with Pearl Jam, the Black Crowes, Soundgarden, Velvet Revolver, Powderfinger, & the Chili Peppers to name but a few. Sounds like a good choice anyway if the story is true.
