AC/DC is powering up for a new trip down the highway to hell.

Marking their first world tour in nearly eight years, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will kick off their U.S. leg in October, per Billboard, following the release of their new studio album, which will be sold exclusively by Wal-Mart.

Manager Rob Light told an industry conference that AC/DC will embark on an 18-month jaunt in support of the new release, which has been two-plus years in the making but doesn't yet have a street date or title. (The Aussie rockers have been toying with the name Black Ice, but nothing's official.)

The first single, "Runaway Train," is due to ship to radio stations next month.

Light indicated a full itinerary should be announced soon. The colossal tour, traversing 17 countries, is destined to hit mostly arenas.
