Airbourne is possessed by the spirits of rock’n’roll. These Australians have always gone where the beers are cool, the girls are hot and the music can never be too loud and proud. There have been some hellraising rock ‘n’ roll bands, but Airbourne have taken the good-times, bad-boys, party-animal strut to a new level.
The scrappy upstarts from Warrnambool – a country town about 3 hours from Melbourne, announced their arrival with 2007’s Runnin’ Wild, one of the most talked-about and best-reviewed debuts in recent hard rock history. Metal Hammer handed them a Golden Gods Award for Best Debut Album and Classic Rock rightly hailed them Best New Band. Airbourne further marked their territory with the jaw-dropping follow up No Guts. No Glory cracking the Top 40 in the UK, the Top 20 in Australia and Billboard’s Top 200. After unrelenting global touring that included co-headlining the legendary Wacken Festival and performing on the main stage at Download UK, the band released the critically acclaimed Black Dog Barking into the world. The album reached #5 in Germany, Top 20 across Europe, Australia, and New Zealand; and Top 30 in Canada and the U.K. Airbourne bring a sound that UK’s Metal Hammer suggests, “takes seconds to memorise and a lifetime to shake off.”
