Australian rockers AIRBOURNE will release new album 'Black Dog Barking' through Roadrunner Records on May 20th 2013.


Produced by the award-winning Brian Howes, this is the band's third album and the follow up to 2010's 'No Guts. No Glory'.


Inspired by the classic likes of Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, AC/DC and Motorhead, Airbourne has been earning followers since 2003 with their headbanging, working man's rock 'n' roll. Their infectious tracks have been used in more than 20 video games, countless films, trailers, TV shows and more. This spring, they have a brand new song, 'Live It Up' being utilized for the launch and promotion of the 'Full Throttle' rollercoaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain theme park in California. Full Throttle will be the tallest, fastest-looping rollercoaster in the world.


Hailing from Warrnambool, a small drinking town on the southwestern coast of Victoria, Australia, Airbourne's explosive live shows and scaffold-scaling festival appearances have been impressing crowds and winning the band headline slots at major events like Rock Am Ring/Im Park, Download and Wacken.


It's been a long eighteen months for Airbourne since coming off the road mid-2011 to work on 'Black Dog Barking'. Said the band:


"A lot of thought and effort has gone into this record, not only by the band, but by the production crew who worked countless hours, seven days a week, even through Christmas and New Year's Eve to achieve the best possible performances, backed by real undying tones. Now we're handing it over to you... so crank it up, crack a beer, and stick some rock 'n' roll in your ear!"


Airbourne play Download Festival this June. Further album news will be available soon.
