AIRBOURNE’s JOEL O’KEEFFE Talks To ROCKSVERIGE At SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL

RockSverige.se conducted an interview with vocalist/lead guitarist Joel O’Keeffe of Australian hard rockers AIRBOURNE at this year’s Sweden Rock Festival, which was held earlier in the month in Sölvesborg.

AIRBOURNE recently signed a worldwide deal with Spinefarm Records. The band is tentatively scheduled to release its fourth album in early 2016.

Led into action by brothers Joel and Ryan O’Keeffe (vocalist/lead guitarist and drummer, respectively; the lineup is completed by David Roads on guitar and Justin Street on bass), the four have spent the past 10 years establishing themselves as a true force of nature — living on the road, selling out major venues, charting albums and appearing on bills with some of rock’s most legendary names, from IRON MAIDEN to THE ROLLING STONES.

With AIRBOURNE, everything is to the hilt, which means that frontman Joel O’ Keeffe is as likely to be climbing the lighting rig or going “walkabout” in the venue as positioned behind the mic; it also means that their three studio albums — “Runnin’ Wild” (2007), “No Guts. No Glory” (2009) and “Black Dog Barking” (2013) — are home to some of the most rousing rock anthems of the past few years, songs like “Too Much, Too Young, Too Fast“, “No Way But The Hard Way“, “Live it Up” and “Runnin’ Wild” itself — a body of work that hasn’t escaped the notice of AC/DC‘s Angus Young, who was recently asked in an interview what he thinks of modern rock music and he said, “I see it as healthy, because there’s newer stuff coming through. I really like AIRBOURNE“.
