Earlier, AC/DC's management confirmed that Malcolm Young had left the band, due to a serious illness.

"Malcolm is suffering from dementia and the family thanks you for respecting their privacy," Malcolm's family told New York's People magazine.

While a statement on the band's official website read: "Unfortunately, due to the nature of Malcolm's condition, he will not be returning to the band."

The news comes off the back of AC/DC announcing their brand new album Rock or Bust is out on December 2. And a world tour in support of the album is to follow.

Malcom Young's nephew Stevie Young (pictured above) played on the album and will tour with the band in Malcolm's place.

Bush New Album

Listen to the Grunge veterans brand new album in full

In a Triple M Music Jury Exclusive, Bush and Gavin Rossdale have released a brand new album. It's called Man On The Run and it's out October 24. Listen to the album stream below.

This will be the band's 6th studio album. The first single is called "The Only Way Out", and we think it's a killer track featuring all the hallmarks of a Bush song.

The album was recorded at Dave Grohl's Studio 606 with Grammy-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (who's done stuff with Foo Fighters and Alice In Chains to name a few ).

It's their first album since 2011's The Sea Of Memories and 20 years since their mega-selling debut album Sixteen Stone, which contained some little songs like "Comedown", "Glycerine" and "Everything Zen"!

This week, it's not Friday, it's Foo-day.

Triple M premiered the new Foo Fighters song today, called "Something From Nothing" which is the first real taste of the Fooies eighth studio album, Sonic Highways. You can hear snippets of the new song in the video above.

Triple M's Head of Rock, Shaun VanGough said, "I’m as pumped as a dog with 5 tails about this new Fooeys album! I love the idea around pairing a TV rockumentary with its release.

"They’re not the kind of band to leave anything to chance. Everything is planned and executed meticulously with focus & deliberateness.

"They’re always up for challenging how they do things and that’s why in my view they’re the world’s greatest rock band. Sonic Highways will be the next killer chapter in their evolution - that’s why I’m excited!"

Pumped?

Bono Apologises For U2's Album Release Onto iTunes

The U2 frontman has apologised for their Apple launch stunt.

U2 frontman Bono has apologised to iTunes customers who were forced to download their new album Songs of Innocence.

The Irishman seems to have had some regrets after the reception it received. During an interview with fans on the band’s Facebook page, Bono was asked about the album’s release: “Can you please never release an album on iTunes that automatically downloads to people’s playlists ever again? It’s really rude.”

Bono responded, honestly and frankly: "Oops … I’m sorry about that. I had this beautiful idea … might have gotten carried away with ourselves. Artists are prone to that thing.

"A drop of megalomania, a touch of generosity, a dash of self-promotion, and deep fear that these songs that we poured our life into over the last few years might not be heard. There’s a lot of noise out there. I guess, we got a little noisy ourselves to get through it."

Watch the full Q and A below:

Bluejuice Frontman Jake Stone Calls Out Punters

It's their final tour and they're not going to put up with annoying fans.

Despite sadly announcing their 'RETROSPECTABLE: The Farewell Tour' earlier in the year, Bluejuice shows still have no shortage of action, humour and sometimes, aggression.

It looks like the heavy partying Bluejuice fans are still at it and frontman Jake Stone is still in top form too with some quality banter at a recent Melbourne show.

Two punters were more interested in having an argument than watching the show, obviously that wasn't going to fly with the Bluejuice boys on their finale tour so Stone pulled them up on their behaviour.

After he saw them arguing, he called them out by saying, “Just come to some kind of meathead conclusion about it, okay? It’s not that hard.” And then continued when they wouldn't stop. Watch the full video below.

Earlier On Triple M

The Foo Fighters have released a short clip to explain the concept behind their latest album and documentary series - Sonic Highways.

"We finished the Sound City movie and I thought we could go all over the country and make a record where each song is recorded in a different studio," Dave Grohl explains.

This process was documented for an eight-part HBO series that starts in the US on October 17.

"So the finale of the episode - when you see us performing the song - you'll recognise all of these references from stories that you've heard in the last hour."

The album will hit our shores on Monday November 10.

Violent Soho Guitarist Refused Flight

He wasn't allowed to fly because he had this printed on his shirt.

Violent Soho are a band absolutely making waves at the moment. Going from strength to strength especially with the release of their third LP Hungry Ghost which peaked at No 6. on the ARIA charts.

Well, they obviously do a lot of flying and from all reports are well behaved young lads (until showtime), however, frontman James Tidswell was refused entry to a Virgin plane on Wednesday because of an offensive t-shirt.

The shirt is actually the title of a 1990 Painters & Dockers single "Eat, Sh*t, Die". See the photo (and song) below.

I wasn't allowed to board the plan wearing my Painters and Dockers shirt. They said I posed a threat.

Despite no-one taking personal offence to the t-shirt Virgin staff cited 'terrorism laws' to deny Tidswell onto the flight.

Tidswell was actually on his way from Brisbane to Melbourne for the Independent Music Awards where they went on to win Best Album and Best Hard Rock, Heavy, or Punk Album.

He was finally allowed onto the flight after turning his shirt inside out.

Looks like Virgin don't know anything about Australian music.
