Airbourne Shares Previously Unreleased Track “Money” From Forthcoming ‘Diamond Cuts’ Box Set

August 31, 2017 BY Nettwerk

There have been hell-raising rock ‘n’ roll bands over the years, but acclaimed Australian rockers Airbourne have taken the good-times, bad-boys, party-animal strut to a new level, crafting underdog-championing anthems with reckless abandon.

To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Airbourne’s hard rockin’ debut Runnin’ Wild, the band will be releasing a collectors’ box set entitled Diamond Cuts on September 29th via Nettwerk. Available in limited edition vinyl and CD formats, the box set includes Airbourne’s first three studio albums: Runnin Wild, No Guts. No Glory, and Black Dog Barking, along with the brand new Diamond Cuts – The B-Sides collection featuring two previously unavailable tracks (“Money” and “Heavy Weight Lover”), plus a bonus unseen documentary DVD of the band, It’s All For Rock N’ Roll – all housed in a collectable slipcase box featuring original Diamond Cuts artwork. Pre-order the box sets here:

Listen to the “Money” below; one of the thumping and previously unreleased tracks from Diamond Cuts:



Airbourne says of the track and box set: “‘Money’ was found covered in piles of dust and reel to reel tape, it was part of the recording sessions for No Guts. No Glory and for some reason it just didn’t make the album, but hearing it again today we’re pumped to get it out there. ‘Show Me The Money’ is a double entendre and we’ll let you figure out what it’s about. It’s part of the Diamond Cuts release all on vinyl with a bunch more other B-Sides that are rare and only ever been released on special editions and never on vinyl. Along with the bonus documentary movie Its All For Rock ‘n’ Roll It’s a grab snap shot of the first 3 albums of the band.”

Formed in the small town of Warrnambool on the south-western coast of Victoria, Australia, Airbourne announced their arrival with 2007’s Runnin’ Wild, one of the most talked-about and best-reviewed debuts in recent hard rock history. Metal Hammer handed them a Golden Gods Award for Best Debut Album and Classic Rock rightly hailed them Best New Band. Airbourne further marked their territory with the jaw-dropping follow up No Guts. No Glory cracking the Top 40 in the UK, Top 20 in Australia and Billboard’s Top 200. After unrelenting worldwide touring that included co-headlining the legendary Wacken Festival, 2013 brought the critically acclaimed Black Dog Barking into the world. The album reached #5 in Germany, Top 20 across Europe, Australia, and New Zealand; and Top 30 in Canada and the UK. Their latest studio album Breakin’ Outta Hell saw the band crack the UK Top 10 for the first time, crashing in at #9. They also achieved their highest ever chart positions in several countries including Australia, Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, Switzerland, etc.

Airbourne manage to call upon the spiritual substance of Thin Lizzy, the gritty bone-shaking 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, energising the entire hard rock scene with their enthusiasm and relentless drive to entertain.

Airbourne will be touring across Europe later this year with support from fellow Aussies Desecrator (Oct 3rd-Nov 8th ONLY), and Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons (Nov 11th-Nov 22nd ONLY).
