Australian rockers AIRBOURNE have set “No Guts, No Glory” as the title of their second album, due on February 23, 2010 via Roadrunner Records. The CD was recorded in Chicago with noted producer Johnny K (DISTURBED, 3 DOORS DOWN, STAIND). The band relocated from its shared home in Warrnambool and moved into K’s spacious studio to record the album.
Frontman Joel O’Keefe says: “Working with Johnny was great; he’s one of the boys. We basically just set up all the gear, chucked a few mics around and went for it! Good times!” Brother and drummer Ryan confirms the precarious microphone placement: “With this album, we threw the mics all over the building, left the doors and windows open and pressed record!”
AIRBOURNE, known for its adrenalized, “work hard, play harder” style of rock, will embark on a two-month European tour in early February that will span two months and kick off with several U.K. dates. The band will commence U.S. touring of major markets beginning in April. They will live on the road through the summer.
“No Guts, No Glory” follows up the band’s 2008-released debut, “Runnin’ Wild”, which went on to sell upwards of 250,000 units worldwide and earned the band heaps of critical accolades.

It has already been over a year and a half since Airbourne released their awesome debut record, Runnin’ Wild. The boys are hard at work in Chicago, Illinois recording disc #2. I would guess with the lack of news that it will be slated for a 2010 release.
The following clips were released in support of Runnin’ Wild. There also a couple of live clips from their show at Wacken Open Air Festival in 2008. If you haven’t purchased this CD, you can grab a copy here! It is worth the money spent!
If you would like to own these videos, you can buy the special edition of Runnin’ Wild from the Hard Rock Hideout Music Store here. The DVD is in PAL format, so you will need a DVD player that can handle this format, but it will work in most computer drives.
Want to know what Airbourne has been up to? Check out the video interview below.
Who needs gold if you have a stack of Airbourne’s “Ready to Rock” EP? Another copy turned up on Ebay last week. This one sold for a crazy $382.00. That is $47.75 per song.
Grab one if you can find it!
The holy grail of music CD’s turned up on Ebay once again. One lucky, or unlucky bidder depending on how you look at it, won a copy of Airbourne’s debut EP for a mere $335.94. That is $41.99 per song!
I love Airbourne, but that price is far too steep for me! Insanity!!
On the new trailer for Madden NFL 10, there is a new Airbourne song, “Heads A Gonna Roll” . Could this be a taste of things to come on the new Airbourne album?

Did you miss the Airbourne Interview on The Bruce Dickinson show last Friday? You can listen to it at the following link!
In 2008, I think I attended a record number of live shows. In no order, I saw the following artists: The Bulletboys, Joey Belladonna, Van Halen, AC/DC, The Answer, Bang Tango, L.A. Guns, Faster Pussycat, Hinder, Rev Theory, Trapt, Papa Roach, Buckcherry, Motley Crue, Poison, Sebastian Bach, Dokken, Airbourne, Theory of a Deadman, Disturbed, Slipknot, Endeverafter, Stonerider, RATT, Jackyl, Pop Evil and more.
Hopefully 2009 will be as good as 2008 from a live perspective!
The following are my favorites of 2008!
5. Bang Tango, L.A. Guns and Faster Pussycat
Ok, so none of these bands have their original lineups anymore. Does that mean that they rock less? Absolutely not. Bang Tango kicked ass. Marty Casey proved to be a good front man for the the Tracii Guns version of L.A. Guns, and Faster Pussycat was still sleazy as ever.
4. Stonerider, Endeverafter and Airbourne
This was my first Airbourne experience, and I will never forget it. Stonerider and Endeverafter kicked ass too.
A great show for a mere $10.00.
3. Mayhem Festival
At this show the bands that I caught live were Black Tide, Five Finger Death Punch, Airbourne, Dragonforce, Disturbed and Slipknot.
I got to meet the guys in Dragonforce and Airbourne at this show. This was my first time seeing Slipknot live. A crazy day and some great live shows!
I am biased, but I love seeing Motley Crue live. They may not be the best band in the world, but they do put on one of the best live shows. Buckcherry, Sixx A.M. and Papa Roach were all great too!
1. AC/DC with The Answer
Even though my seats were terrible, this show was excellent, and I enjoyed every minute of it. I loved getting to see The Answer for the first time. AC/DC puts on one the biggest and loudest live shows that I have ever seen. Awesome!
Australian hard rockers AIRBOURNE will be IRON MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinson’s guests today during Bruce’s weekly BBC 6 Music radio program, dubbed “The Bruce Dickinson Friday Rock Show”. Listen to the broadcast live via the Internet between 9:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. (midnight) U.K. time or at 4 p.m. EST in the U.S.
Bruce Dickinson’s show can be found at this link BBC.co.uk
Yep, that is right, Airbourne has three videos in the Top 10. Their final video, “Diamond In the Rough” came from this first time I caught the band at the Club A1A in Lexington, Kentucky. “Diamond in the Rough” has been watched 13,931 times in 2008, and is the third and final Airbourne video in the Top 10 Live Videos this year.
This year has been a great one not only for new hard music releases, but also for live music as well.
Each day I will present to you the 10 ten live videos from HRH in 2008. There are a few you would expect, and quite a few that you wouldn’t.
Coming in at # 10 is Airbourne’s Live Performance of “Stand Up For Rock N’ Roll” at the A1A Club in Lexington, KY. This video clocked in with 7, 050 views in 2008!
See what Ryan and Joel O’Keeffe have to say about the follow up album to Runnin’ Wild in the video interview with Metal Hammer magazine at the link below.
British rockers STONE GODS have just been announced as the main support to BLACK STONE CHERRY on their UK tour next month!!
Currently on the road with Aussie headbangers AIRBOURNE, the guys will only have a weeks rest before hitting the road once more….no rest for the seriously rockin’!
It has been an incredible year of achievements for the Stone Gods – their debut release, the ‘Burn The Witch’ EP, sold out within hours of going on sale and hit the UK Rock Chart at number 2. The band played triumphant sets at this year’s Download and Isle of Wight Festivals and toured with Velvet Revolver. Their debut album was released in July to critical and commercial success. And to top it all, they received TWO nominations for the 2008 Classic Rock Magazine Awards (Best New Band and Album Of The Year)!

Cruefest ’08 is now over and has been deemed a success.
If you could pick your own Cruefest bill for 2009, what 4 bands would you
choose to open for Motley Crue?
My Four choices are:
Also, if they want to turn this into a true festival environment, how about adding a second stage for 3 or 4 bands to play on?
Who would you pick for Cruefest 2009?
Airbourne posted the following bulletin this evening:
After 200+ shows this year, Joel’s suffering from strained vocal chords and is being forced under doctor’s orders to cancel the current USA dates with Motorhead. All that is needed is a couple of weeks rest & then the band will be back on the Road in Japan this Oct and then taking on a UK / Europe tour for the third time in ten months. The band is gutted that they can not play these shows with Motorhead & hope to see you all at a show soon.
Rock on & see you soon….
Sound and Fury are continuing their rock n’ roll freight train of excess with the group’s Fall US tour alongside Boston based ‘80s enthusiasts Bang Camaro.
“Bang Camaro are really great and we’re really excited to be touring with them and its gonna be a kick ass party,” commented Sound and Fury frontman Luke Metcalf.
Toronto’s Sound and Fury are flying high off their self-titled debut full-length album, which was released through Rebel Youth Records/MRI-RED Distribution. The band’s refreshing approach to modern rock combines the thunderous riffing of AC/DC with the raw energy of the Ramones. The band’s explosive live show has been converting loyal fans opening for everyone from pop-punkers Sum 41 to Aussie rockers Airbourne. Sound and Fury’s unbridled power can be witnessed in the group’s brand new video for “Teenage Rampage”, which can be seen online at www.soundandfury.com.
Boston based Bang Camaro are the perfect tour companion to aid Sound and Fury’s whiskey rawk show. The band consists of three guitar players, a bass player, a drummer, and anywhere from ten to twenty singers. The songs remind the listener of arena rock from the mid to late 80s, but with a strange twist. This band has no lead vocals, only guitar solos and choruses sung by the band and the mob of extras. The group is touring in support of their self-titled debut album, which has drawn attention from MTV and Billboard magazine.

Sep 12 2008 Northampton, MA @ Pearl Street

There were a few different bands that I wanted to see during the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival in Indianapolis, but there were none that I wanted to see more than one of my new favorites, Airbourne.
I have seen Airbourne play twice already in 2008, once in Lexington, KY, and again in Cincinnati, Ohio. When it was time for Airbourne’s set, I made my way as close as I could get to the front of the stage. They didn’t draw the larger crowds that some of the cookie monster sounding bands had, but once Airbourne started playing, the crowd came in a hurry.
One of the bad things about the Mayhem festival is that each band on the side stages only got 30 – 40 minutes to play. For Airbourne it seemed closer to 30, but they made the best of it. Their short set included the tunes, “Stand Up For Rock ‘N’ Roll“, “Fat City“, “Girls in Black“, and “Running Wild“. During the middle of the song, “Girls in Black”, lead singer, and guitar player Joel O’Keefe jumped down into the crowd and continued to play while being surrounded in a pit of people. Not only was the cool, but it really got the crowd going. Their set may have been short, but it was certainly electric. Airbourne may be a newer band, but they know how to rock a crowd!
After the show, I was able to meet the members of Airbourne, and talk to Joel O’Keefe. Finally getting to meet Airbourne, was the highlight of the day so far at the Mayhem festival, but I still had a few more bands to watch before the day was out. I will post more on the other acts soon at the Mayhem festival soon. Until then, enjoy the live videos from Airbourne below.
Airbourne will perform live on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show tonight. Jimmy Kimmel Live starts at 12:05 EST on ABC. Don’t miss them!
Did you miss Rev Theory or Airbourne on Jimmy Kimmel Live? You can watch them here!
Airbourne – Running Wild
Rev Theory – Hell Yeah
Sound And Fury Assaults Great White North On Canadian Tour With Airbourne
REJECT ALL THINGS POP FOR REAL, RAMPAGING, ROCK ON DEBUT ALBUM, “SOUND AND FURY” IN STORES NOW!
Toronto’s high powered rock n’ roll powerhouse Sound & Fury have announced their Canadian tour supporting Australian rockers Airbourne. The announcement comes on the heels of the release of the band’s self-titled debut, which hit stores via Rebel Youth Records/MRI-RED Distribution.
Sound and Fury recently shot a video for “Teenage Rampage” at Toronto’s Bovine Sex Club with director Britt Wilen. The video can be seen online at the following location http://new.soundandfury.com/ajax.asp?video=rampage
Sound and Fury frontman Luke Metcalf commented, “The song is about a pretty wild girl I dated in high school and I wanted a video about her that was NOT politically correct. I wanted a video that showed what we were doing; drinking, getting stoned, listening to Rock and Roll and having sex, without some bullshit negative message. Good times!!!”
Sound and Fury, which also includes guitarists Daz and Griffin, bassist John Kerns, and drummer Chris Avalos, is all about power chords, no-BS rock ‘n roll, and total sonic assault, as evidenced by the lead-off turbo-charged single and video from ‘Sound and Fury,’ “18.” The group’s stripped down straight up rock n’ roll and was praised by PunkTV.ca for “combining iconoclastic AC/DC thunder, Misfits brooding, the raw impetuousness of the Pistols and the charismatic anthemic song styling’s of the Ramones. In addition to perfectly capturing their raw power on album, Sound & Fury has been gaining fans by the truckload by also opening up for Canada’s leading pop-punk band, Sum 41, throughout the great white north (as well as the U.K.).
The band has also announced they will be giving away five pairs of tickets to each show for fans who join the Sound & Fury street-team at www.rebelyouth.com. Fans are encouraged to join the street-team to qualify to tickets, Sound & Fury merchandise and a customized Guitar Hero game.

Yesterday, I spent the afternoon at the Rockstar Energy drink Mayhem festival in Indianapolis, IN. I caught several bands live, and hope to have the photos and video up on the site soon. I have close to 4 GB of photo and video to go through, so I will put stuff up as time allows.
Some of the bands that I saw yesterday were Black Tide, Five Finger Death Punch, Airbourne, Dragonforce, Disturbed and Slipknot.
More on the way soon!
Let me start off by saying that I am not a fan of the WWE. A couple of decades ago, I used to watch the WWF, when some of the classic wrestlers like Andre the Giant, The Junkyard Dog, Rowdy Piper, and Hulk Hogan were still wrestling.
I haven’t followed the WWE, and I know very few of today’s wrestlers. I typically wouldn’t give a disc like this a second look.
Whoever produced this CD, forgot to give credit to the bands performing the songs. You wont find the band names on this disc. You wil only find the name of the wrestler for who the theme was recorded for.
So why pick up the CD? Three reasons, Endeverafter, Theory of A Deadman, and Airbourne. If you are a completist, and you like to own every song, but a certain band, there may be a couple of songs on here that will interest you.
Endeverafter’s tune, No More Words was recorded for Jeff Hardy. No Chance in Hell by Theory of A Deadman was recorded as a them song for Vince McMahon, and Airbourne’s tune, Turn Up The Trouble was recorded for Mr. Kennedy.
There is also a song, Don’t Question My Heart that was performed by Saliva, with Shinedown’s Brent Smith).
The rest of the disc is mostly pop and rap music (shudder). I don’t care for either of those styles of music, so the other songs had no appeal to me. As a diehard Airbourne fan, I had to have the song, Turn Up The Trouble, and this is the only place you are going to find it.
You can find cheap copies of this disc at Amazon.com.

Sound And Fury Announce Live Dates With Less Than Jake and Airbourne
REJECT ALL THINGS POP FOR REAL, RAMPAGING, ROCK ON
DEBUT ALBUM, “SOUND AND FURY” OUT NOW!
Toronto’s high powered rock n’ roll powerhouse Sound & Fury have announced more dates with Australian rockers Airbourne, including a full European tour that will make stops in the UK, France Germany and Sweden. The announcement comes on the heels of the release of the band’s self-titled debut, which hit stores via Rebel Youth Records/MRI-RED Distribution and just prior to the band taking their in-your-face live show on a US tour with Goldfinger and Less Than Jake.
Sound and Fury, which also includes guitarists Daz and Griffin, bassist John Kerns, and drummer Chris Avalos, is all about power chords, no-bullshit rock ‘n roll, and total sonic assault, as evidenced by the lead-off turbo-charged single and video from ‘Sound and Fury,’ “18.” To view the video for “18″ online, go to http://www.soundandfury.com/rebelyouth/videos.htm. The Sammy Ray Welch-directed video shoot for “18″ recently took place in an abandoned police station in Toronto, and featured lighting design input from A.J. Pen, who is known for his work with Linkin Park.
The band has also announced they will be giving away five pairs of tickets to each show for fans who join the Sound & Fury street-team at www.rebelyouth.com. Fans are encouraged to join the street-team to qualify for tickets, merchandise and a customized Guitar Hero game.
In addition to perfectly capturing their raw power on album, Sound and Fury has been gaining fans by the truckload by also opening up for Canada’s leading pop-punk band, Sum 41, throughout the great white north (as well as the U.K.).

I started compiling the following list of New releases for 2008.
