AC/DC 'To Tour With New Music' This Year
AC/DC's Brian Johnson has said the band could be back on tour again by the end of the year.
The frontman confirmed the news in a statement on his motor racing website.
Johnson wrote: "It looks very likely that we will be on the road again before the end of the year. So stand by for more music."
In April it was announced that guitarist Malcolm Young was taking a break from the group to seek treatment for "ill health".
But the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers said at the time they would "continue to make music", despite rumours they are on the brink of retirement.
Their last studio album was 2008's Black Ice which was followed by a sell-out tour which became one of the highest-grossing tours of all time, making $441m (£258m). Their last show was in 2010.
AC/DC released a live disc in 2012.
It is believed the band, which has signed up Angus and Malcolm's nephew Stevie, has been recording new material in Canada.
Johnson's full statement said: "Hello everyone, I just wanted to thank everyone for their kind words about Cars That Rock. Your encouragement means a lot to me.
"This was my first ever go at presenting a TV series and even though it may not show, I was real nervous and so am very relieved that you all seem to be enjoying it.
"We hope to bring you more shows in the near future but, of course, there is the slight distraction of my day job with AC/DC - and it looks very likely that we will be on the road again before the end of the year. So stand by for more music - and more Cars That Rock. thanks - Brian."
