Airbourne issue Breakin’ Outta Hell lyric video


Airbourne have released a lyric video for the title track from their upcoming album.

Breakin’ Outta Hell will be the Australian outfit’s fourth album and is set for launch on September 23 via Spinefarm Records. It’ll be the follow-up to 2013’s Black Dog Barking.

Frontman Joel O’ Keeffe says: “We get a lot of feedback from our fans saying how much they love the faster tracks but when they play them in the car – well, it can be tough on their pocket with all the speeding fines!

Breakin’ Outta Hell is definitely one of those numbers – even the guys who filmed the lyric video were stopped by the police and given a fine.

“These visuals really sum up the feeling behind the song, and the album, too – the whole message is right there. Put on the single, or the album, and it’s fuck the boss and fuck all the tax I owe. I’m going out, I’m getting pissed and I’m going to listen to some hard rock‘n’oll. No ballads, no bullshit. I’m breaking out of hell!”

Earlier this week, Airbourne announced a UK winter tour and will also support Volbeat on their European dates.

Further album details will be revealed in due course.
