As previously reported, Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, known as 2CELLOS are back with a new music video and a brand new album. The music video for their first single is a powerful and intense rendition of AC/DC’s ‘Highway To Hell’ featuring Steve Vai. “Our fans love this song at our live shows and we really wanted to add it to the album,” says Stjepan. “It was very exciting to work with an amazing musician such as Steve and we really want to show the people that the cello can rock as hard as the guitar!” says Luka.
