Australian hard rock heroes Airbourne have just announced details of their highly anticipated return to Ireland with a date at The Academy, Dublin on 22 October.
Airbourne is the walking, talking, living, breathing, screaming, spitting, fist-pumping embodiment of all that hard rock has encompassed since the movement began.
Airbourne manage to call upon the spiritual substance of Thin Lizzy, the gritty pub-crawling vibe of Motörhead, the grandiose histrionic theatricality of Judas Priest, the unifying audience domination of Iron Maiden and the sharp bite of their fellow Australians in the legendary AC/DC.
They’ve stitched together these disparate components into a head-banging Frankenstein monster of their own creation, energizing the entire hard rock scene with their enthusiasm and relentless drive.
Black Dog Barking, the band’s new album, is a furious declaration of all that it means to feel truly alive in service to the great spirit of rock n’ roll music.
Front man Joel says the new album is without a doubt one of the most honest rock n’ roll records available at the moment. “It’s everything we’ve got to give,” Joel declares. “We put our heart and soul into this one. If you love rock n’ roll, you’re gonna love this.”
