Airbourne were formed in 2003 and have been thrilling fans with their classic guitar lines and tough image ever since. In the tradition built around Australian rock by AC/DC, Airbourne are fully committed to making their voices heard – loudly.
Fans come to their gigs around the world dressed like rock stars from the "old" days — in denim, leather and band shirts, looking a lot like the stars themselves. Formed by two brothers, Ryan and Joel O'Keeffe, who played drums and sang vocals respectively, they were joined by David Roads, who provided guitar and vocal support, and then by Justin Street on the bass. They soon outgrew their local pubs and clubs, moving to Melbourne together to find bigger venues and to release their first EP.
The band released its spirited sophomore album, No Guts. No Glory, in 2010, and set off on tour with Iron Maiden the following year. A third album, Black Dog Barking, arrived in 2013, followed in 2016 by Breakin' Outta Hell.
