Watch AC/DC’s New ‘Rock the Blues Away’ Video

AC/DC have just released the video for “Rock the Blues Away,” the third single from their recent Rock or Bust album.

Filmed after the band’s performance at the 57th annual Grammy Awards, the new video finds AC/DC working once more with director David Mallet — and, like the first video from Rock or Bust, features fans who volunteered their screaming services.

“Rock the Blues Away” arrives as the band prepares for its upcoming North American tour, which is already fetching impressively expensive prices on the secondary market, and features returning drummer Chris Slade behind the kit. As previously reported, Slade made his way back to the lineup following the arrest of Phil Rudd, whose own return to the band in 1994 led to Slade’s exit.

The group’s first effort without ailing co-founder Malcolm Young, Rock or Bust has continued AC/DC’s long reign of worldwide chart success since its arrival, debuting in the Top 5 in the U.S. and reaching No. 1 in many other countries. The band’s 16th studio LP and the follow-up to 2008’s Black Ice, it’s been certified gold for sales of 500,000 units in the States.

“Rock the Blues Away” follows “Play Ball” and the album’s title track as singles, both of which peaked inside the Top 20 of Billboard‘s U.S. Mainstream Rock chart.
