Supersuckers front man confirms AC/DC producer is Brendan O'Brien

Brendan O'Brien

According to a blog post on the Supersuckers web site, front man Eddie Spaghetti has confirmed that the new AC/DC album is being produced by Brendan O'Brien.

To quote Mr. Spaghetti, "I'm sure you're all wondering, "where the hell is that new 'suckers record?", well rest assured it IS coming. It's just taking a little longer than we expected to get done. Our current snag is that the producer of the new record wants to make some last minute tweaks and, well, he can't right now. He's been detained by a little Australian band called, uh, AC/DC. That's right our man Billy Bowers, who did such a stellar job on our "Paid" E.P., is an engineer for Brendan O'Brien who is producing the new AC/DC record and so he's been taken away from our project temporarily. But he assures us that, as soon as he can, he will have the mixes done and that they will rock mightily so we have to just be content with that for now. In the meantime, we will be keeping busy rocking the free world and you can come and get your fix of the new material at one of our many rock shows coming up in the near future at a location near you, I'm sure."

O'Brien has a star-studded recording history under his belt, having worked with such legendary acts as Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Bruce Springsteen, The Georgia Satellites, Neil Young, Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave, Velvet Revolver and even Bob Dylan.

AC/DC is currently thought to be recording at the Warehouse Studios in Vancouver though that hasn't been officially confirmed by the band or their record label.
