If you know your hard rock well, you will know Airbourne from Australia. Airbourne just announced that they have signed a worldwide deal with Spinefarm Records on which they will release their fourth album likely later this year. For the German speaking markets Spinefarm has partnered with Universal Germany’s Vertigo imprint.
In case you don’t know Airbourne, they formed in 2003 and the lineup is Joel O’Keeffe (vocals, lead guitar), Ryan O’Keeffe (drums), David Roads (guitar) and Justin Street (bass). They have three releases under their belt: Runnin’ Wild (2007), No Guts. No Glory (2009) and Black Dog Barking (2013).
Even AC/DC’s Angus Young, who was recently asked in an interview what he thinks of modern rock music, said, “I see it as healthy, because there’s newer stuff coming through. I really like Airbourne.” Now that’s an endorsement!
They are road dogs, so you will most likely find them again at a major festival near you this year again. They have already been confirmed to appear at Rockavaria in Munich, Germany and Rock In Vienna in Austria. You will find more tour updates for Airbourne very soon here on Rock That Metal.
Here is a little taste of Airbourne, “Live it Up”:
