Biography

Warnambool, Australia, is home to hard rockers Airbourne. Founded in 2003 by the brothers Joel (vocal/guitar) and Ryan O'Keeffe (drums), the line-up was completed by bassist Justin Street and rhythm guitarist David Roads – meanwhile replaced by Matthew ‘Harri’ Harrison. Airbourne is synonymous with hard rock in the purest sense of the word. Their uncompromising what-you-see-is-what-you-get attitude has endeared them to hordes of metal fans across the globe. The set list will undoubtedly include several songs off their recent fifth album, ‘Boneshaker’ (2019). The album offers a generous dose of what we’ve come to expect from these party animals so no surprises there, but who cares, right? The recipe still works like a charm: energetic performances and blaringly loud hard rock inspired on the best AC/DC, Priest, Rose Tattoo and Motörhead tradition. ‘Boneshaker’ is yet another rock ‘n’ roll rollercoaster with all the subtlety of a solid kick in the family jewels. The album’s closing track just about sums up Airbourne’s attitude to music and life in general: ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll for Life’! (#GMM20)
