“This is Airbourne doing what they do best… only better.” – Kerrang!
“Loud, violent and bloody, and about as subtle as a punch in the face – but in a really good way.” – Classic Rock
“Catchy as hell and stacked with riffs big enough to reach outer space, Boneshaker is a rousing dose of beer-sodden rock escapism.”– Outlaw
AIRBOURNE have unleashed an official music video for their current single, ‘Backseat Boogie’; shot at their sold-out Copenhagen show at Amager Biojust last month, this latest clip captures fans rocking out to new songs from the recently released studio album, Boneshaker, for the very first time – WATCH THE VIDEO HERE.

This is ‘Boneshaker’.
This is Airbourne.
Rock ‘n’ Roll For Life.
Airbourne is an Australian hard rock band formed in Warrnambool in 2003 by brothers Joel O’Keeffe on lead vocals and lead guitar, and Ryan O’Keeffe on drums. The lineup was completed with Justin Street on bass guitar and backing vocals, and David Roads, on rhythm guitar and backing vocals. In 2017, Roads amicably stepped down, with Matthew Harrison stepping up as his replacement.
The band’s debut album, Runnin’ Wild, was released in June 2007, certified Silver in the UK, and charted in the top 30 of the ARIA Albums chart, appeared on the US Billboard 200; UK, France, Austria, and Switzerland Albums chart.
Their second album, No Guts. No Glory. came out in March 2010, reached top 20 in Australia, Austria, New Zealand, Finland, Greece, Sweden, and Switzerland, as well as going in at #31 in the UK and Top 100 of the US Billboard 200. The third studio album, Black Dog Barking, was released in May 2013, and peaked at #17 in Australia and came in top 20 in Austria, Finland, Germany, New Zealand, Sweden, and Switzerland, as well as top 100 in the UK, Spain, Norway, and France. In October 2016, Airbournereleased their fourth album, Breakin’ Outta Hell, which peaked top 5 in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland; #9 in the UK; and top 20 in Australia. The band has played an estimated 1000+ shows since the formation of the band, including multiple appearances at some of the biggest festivals in the world, including Wacken, Download, Hellfest, Rock am Ring, and Rock im Park.
About Boneshaker the album:
With the creation of Boneshaker,all-action Aussie rockers Airbournedecided to take the bolder path; to align with Nashville’s Number One producer, Dave Cobb, whose credits include both Chris Stapleton and the ‘Star Is Born’ soundtrack, as a way of staking out new turf away from comfort zones and safe havens…
“It’s a live gig in the studio. This is always something we wanted to do – find a way to bring the soul and power of an Airbournelive show into an album. Cobb caught our lightning and put it in a bottle.” states bandleader Joel O’Keeffe.
Relocating to historic Studio A on Nashville’s Music Row, six-time Grammy Award-winning producer Cobb’s natural home and one of Music City’s most prized creative hubs, the four musicians set themselves a challenge: to make a record cut from the same frayed cloth as those classic late-’70s recordings from Australia’s legendary Albert’s house of ‘Oz Rock’ that inspired the band so much.
There are no weird tangents here, no un-called for asides, no messin’ about. This is straight-down-the-line pure rock ‘n’ roll drama smelling of burnt rubber, spilt gasoline and valves glowing red hot. No ballads, no acoustic guitars, no keyboards. 10 tracks, 30 minutes of music. Everything lean an’ lethal, stripped to the bone, to those essential elements that rock ‘n’ roll requires to properly do its work: raging guitars, pounding bass ‘n’ bass, vocals packed full of real personality – the kind of passion that only comes from willfully pursuing a life on the line.
