‘Black Ice’ hit store shelves on October 20th, 2008, and has been certified Double Platinum in the U.S. It is the first studio album from the band in more than eight years and demonstrates AC/DC’s ability to still rock.

‘Black Ice’ made history debuting at #1 on album charts in 29 countries and also has the distinction of being Columbia Records’ biggest debut album (since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales data in 1991).
The album has been certified Multi Platinum in eighteen countries, including the US, Australia, Canada, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Germany, France, Italy, Argentina and the Czech Republic.
