AC/DC have debuted the music for “Realize,” a song off the band’s new album, “Power Up.” The video fits perfectly with the AC/DC brand, featuring raw, rock ‘n’ roll-infused black-and-white footage of band members performing on a bare stage, backed by walls of Marshall amps. Watch the music video below via YouTube.

“Realize” marks the third song off “Power Up” to get a music video, the first two being “Demon Fire” and debut single “Shot in the Dark.” The song and music video feature the reunited “Back in Black” lineup of Angus Young, Brian Johnson, Phil Rudd and Cliff Williams, plus rhythm guitarist Stevie Young, who joined the band after the passing of Malcolm Young.

While the video looks like a simple, live rock video, it wasn’t. According to the band, the group’s members all performed in different locations, and directors Clemens Habicht and Josh Cheuse spliced together the footage to make it look as if they were all rocking out together.

“Power Up,” the much-anticipated follow-up to AC/DC’s 2014 album “Rock or Bust,” arrived last November. The album has been a major sales success for AC/DC, as it debuted No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States and reached the top of other charts around the world. The album is said to be a tribute to late band member Malcolm Young, who passed away in 2017. “Power Up” was also significant in that it featured the return of Johnson, Rudd and Williams, who all split with AC/DC following the band’s 2016 tour.

On Audio Ink Radio’s year-end lists, “Power Up” was named one of our Top 60 Rock and Metal Albums of 2020. Meanwhile, “Shot In the Dark” was named one of our Top 35 Rock and Metal Songs of 2020. We also gave AC/DC’s “Power Up” a strong album review, describing the outfit as getting back to their “traditional, straight-ahead rock roots” on the set.
