The official lyric video for "Breakin' Outta Hell", the title track of the fourth studio album from Australian hard rockers AIRBOURNE, can be seen below. The CD will be released on September 16 via Spinefarm.
The "Breakin' Outta Hell" lyric video — created by Richard Oakes from Dark Fable Media — may have implications for those with easy access to open roads.
Watch the clip from start to finish and you might just get the urge to open the throttle.
"We get a lot of feedback from our fans saying how much they love the faster tracks," says AIRBOURNE frontman Joel O'Keeffe. "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.
"For us, 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' roll.' No ballads, no bullshit. I'm breaking out of hell!"
"Breakin' Outta Hell" was produced by Bob Marlette, who helmed AIRBOURNE's "Runnin' Wild" debut in 2007, and was engineered and mixed by Mike Fraser, who has previously worked with AEROSMITH, VAN HALEN, METALLICA and more.
As previously reported, AIRBOURNE has announced a headline tour of North America for September and October. The trek kicks off in San Diego on September 12 and concludes in Baltimore on October 14, taking in 21 shows along the way.
Driven by a formidable work hard, play hard ethic, the Australian outfit (led into action by brothers Joel and Ryan O'Keeffe, vocalist/lead guitarist and drummer, respectively; guitarist David Roads and bassist Justin Street complete the lineup) has spent the past ten years establishing itself as a true force of nature: living on the road, selling out major venues and appearing on bills with some of rock's most legendary names, and this latest North American run will only add to their reputation for incendiary live performances — maximum energy, maximum entertainment.
