On Tuesday, AC/DC released Black Ice, the iconic Aussie band's first studio LP in more than eight years, available exclusively through Wal-Mart. On Thursday, the band posted an online clip featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the making of their new video, "Rock 'N Roll Train."
Shot on August 15 in London, the video gives fans a first taste of the band's latest album, which, if early sales estimates are accurate, could end up selling 800,000 copies its first week on store shelves.
Directed by David Mallet, the video — filmed largely in front a green screen — was shot with four Red cameras, which have a resolution that exceeds 35 mm film but with the dynamic range of traditional cameras. Several fans were invited to be part of the production, and the video even features a few unintelligible words from frontman Brian Johnson. As one fan put it as he walked into the studio, "The boys are back."
MTV News will be attending this weekend's secret AC/DC show, so check back on Monday for our full report on that experience.
