Airbourne formed in the band’s hometown of Warrnambool, Victoria, in 2003. Their first album Runnin’ Wild was one of the most talked-about and best-reviewed debuts in recent rock history, winning the band a Metal Hammer Golden Gods Award for Best Debut Album.
The band has since released “No Guts. No Glory.” and their most recent album, “Black Dog Barking”, which debuted at #17 on the ARIA Albums Chart. The album has also been extremely successful around the world, charting in the top 30 of many countries, including #5 in Germany, #9 in Switzerland and #11 in Austria.
Airbourne has toured extensively overseas, appearing at many of the world’s biggest festivals, including Rock Im Park, Rock Am Ring, Sonisphere, Metalgest, Novarock and Download. In addition, the band also graced Australian stages in July last year, playing at Splendour In The Grass, as well as a select few shows around the country.
The nomination for “Best Live Act” at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards, as well as last year’s ARIA nomination for “Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal” Album, are testaments to Airbourne’s energy-fueled live performances, which often draw mass crowds from across the globe.
