Columbia Records announces the worldwide release of "Black Ice," the long awaited new studio album from AC/DC, on Monday, October 20.

"Black Ice," the first full-length studio album of all-new material from AC/DC since the release of "Stiff Upper Lip" in 2000, is the band's debut recording for Columbia Records.

Produced by Brendan O'Brien at the Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, BC, "Black Ice" premieres 15 new AC/DC compositions and performances including the album's first single, "Rock 'N' Roll Train," slated to impact radio around the world on August 28 with a video debuting in September.

"No Bull: The Director's Cut," a newly edited expanded DVD edition of AC/DC's historic performance at Madrid's Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas on July 10, 1996, will be released worldwide on September 8, 2008.

"No Bull: The Director's Cut" has been remixed in Dolby Digital Stereo and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound and includes the original concert showcasing more than two hours of music as well as bonus features.

AC/DC will embark on a major world tour, the group's first since 2001, beginning late October.
