AC/DC ‘Rock the Blues Away’ in New Music Video
AC/DC have released the music video for their track “Rock the Blues Away.” The clip features the band performing in front of a live audience, with backstage and behind-the-scenes clips spliced in-between the performance shots. Watch the clip above.
The video was filmed in Los Angeles shortly after the band’s Grammy performance and features Chris Slade behind the kit. As you may recall, Slade joined AC/DC last month to fill in for the group’s original drummer, Phil Rudd, who is awaiting a judge-alone trial on charges of threatening to kill and drug possession. He is set to have his day in court on April 21. However, Rudd played on the Rock or Bust album.
This is the third video the band has released from the new album, and it was directed by David Mallet. AC/DC previously released music videos for their songs "Play Ball" and the title-track "Rock or Bust." Drummer Bob Richards was featured in those videos and has previously said he had a wonderful experience with the band, saying they were very welcoming during the shoot.
AC/DC kick off their 2015 North American tour on Aug. 22 in Foxborough, Mass and will tour the US and Canada through Sept. 28. Slade will be behind the kit with the group not only on those dates, but on their full world tour which kicks off in May in Arnhem, Holland. Before their world tour kicks off, AC/DC are scheduled to play Coachella on April 10 and 17.
