After a day of intense rumors regarding the future of the band, AC/DC has finally issued a statement.

On the band's Facebook page, the group announced that founding member Malcolm Young will take a break from the band due to health issues.




Brian Johnson previously denied rumors that the band would retire.  He says the band plans on heading to the studio in May.

A close friend of Young's said that the band would likely not continue without all of the current members, but did mention that Malcolm's nephew could take his place.
