AC/DC are hoping to release a new album "within the next couple of years."

Angus Young - lead guitarist in the band - revealed the plans at the group's 'AC/DC Live At River Plate' DVD premiere at the Hammersmith Apollo in London last night and explained his hopes that they will also be touring again soon.

He told BANG Showbiz: "Well at some point we'll be touring again once we get a new album out, which will hopefully be within the next couple of years."

When asked about whether the band could have an even better tour than 2009/2010's 'Black Ice Tour' - which saw them play to more than five million fans and visit 108 cities in 20 months - he replied: "Yeah, definitely."

Vocalist Brian Johnson added: "We'll try to make the next tour even better, we'll bloody try."

However, the group - who are also made up of Angus' brother Malcolm on rhythm guitar, bassist Cliff Williams and drummer Phil Rudd - were one short at the DVD launch of their concert filmed at Buenos Aires' River Plate Stadium in Argentina in 2009, as Phil's New Zealand home was recently struck by a natural disaster.

Brian explained: "It's been fantastic, we've had a ball these past few days, but poor Phil cannot be here because his house got hit by a storm."

The 'AC/DC Live At River Plate' DVD is out today.
