In May 2012, when talking about new material, Angus Young said:

You know what Brian’s (Johnson) like. He just says things and then walks away. It’ll be a little while – a year or two anyway. I’ve been doing some jamming on some song ideas but I do that all the time, as do the rest of the band. We are still working. But we had a long rest between Stiff Upper Lip and Black Ice, so I think we need a couple of years to recuperate and work on it a bit more.

Later in 2012, the band released their first live album in 20 years.
