AC/DC are seething with electricity ahead of releasing their seventeenth studio album, PWR/UP. They're giving fans the chance to logo-ize their initials with the iconic red lightening.
The Rock Gods shared their official Power Up name generator, complete with "Pwr Up" button and sound effects. Simply enter your name and the electrified machine spits out initials fashioned in the band’s iconic red thunderbolt type. If you’re a fan of slight feedback noises, then just keep pushing that “GENERATE” button!
Users can share the image on multiple platforms and designate the logo across many social media avatars.
It’s all promotion for AC/DC’s long-awaited album PWR/UP, their first since 2014. Guitarist Angus Young shared with RADIO.COM how COVID-19 hindered the album’s promotion early in the year. “First everyone thought we would be locked down for a couple of weeks. Then a couple of weeks became a couple of months and it seemed to get longer,” he said. “Originally we were hoping to get it out sooner.”
Their latest single, “Shot in the Dark,” borrows voices from the group’s past as Brian Johnson, Phil Rudd, and Cliff Williams join Young to reform the band’s Back in Black lineup.
Johnson hopes their new music can bring joy to music fans around the globe living through a tough year. “The great thing with this new album is we’re hoping it might lift the spirits of people around the world."
“[It’s] a little bit of rock ‘n’ roll, some fresh rock ‘n’ roll on their dinner plate, you know?”
