Airbourne Premiere “Backseat Boogie” Music Video

Airbourne have premiered a new video for their song “Backseat Boogie.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Boneshaker.” Joel O’Keeffe commented:

“Half filmed at a soundcheck last Tuesday and half filmed at a crazy sold-out Danish club show — here’s ‘Backseat Boogie’ to whet your appetite for a mega 2020 and the start of a two-year ‘Boneshaker’ world tour.”

Airbourne Premiere New Song “Backseat Boogie”

Airbourne have premiered a new song titled “Backseat Boogie.” This track is from the band’s new album “Boneshaker,” which will be released on October 25.

Joel O’Keeffe commented:

“The riff, this is one of those ones where Cobb walked out and said, ‘What are you playing there?’ and I was, ‘Ah, I’m just playing this riff. It’s this riff I had in Australia. It’s got a bit of a vibe. I’m not sure.’ He goes, ‘Aw, man, we gotta do that one,’ and he got behind the drums and picked up Ryan’s drumsticks and said, ‘Oh, man. How does he play with these things? These things are baseball bats,’ and it was just really funny. And Ryan jumped on the kit, and we tracked it right then and there.”

Ryan O’Keeffe added:

“It all happened really fast. The band’s lucky to have had a lot of time rehearsing together and playing together, but we tracked songs before we even thought we tracked them. He’d say, ‘Give it another go if you want, but the one you just did, and here’s the first one you did, and that’s the vibe.”

Airbourne Premiere “Boneshaker” Music Video

Airbourne have premiered a new video for the title track of their new album “Boneshaker” (October 25). The clip was filmed by Tom Russell during the band’s sets at the Wacken Festival in Germany and the Skogsrojet Festival in Sweden. Joel O’Keeffe commented:

“We didn’t wanna fuck around with storylines or any of that shit. Plus we fuckin’ love Wacken. This year was our fourth time playing there and it marked their 30th anniversary. We debuted our new single ‘Boneshaker’ in front of 90,000 people… here it is on film, crank it up and rock out to the max!”

Airbourne To Release New Album “Boneshaker” In October, Stream Title Track

Airbourne have announced that they will be releasing a new album titled “Boneshaker” on October 25. The band recorded the effort with producer Dave Cobb at Studio A on Nashville’s Music Row and the title track is available to stream below:

Joel O’Keeffe said the following about the record:

“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 Airbourne live show into an album. Cobb caught our lightning and put it in a bottle.”

Matthew Harrison also added the following about the cover art, which was created by Matt Read (Combustion Ltd.) and Sean Tidy of (Design House Studio Ltd.):

“The whole sentiment we were after was about rock ‘n’ roll for life. We wanted to create something tattoo worthy, and that the artwork was classic and stood the test of time.”
