Australian hard rockers AIRBOURNE have parted ways with guitarist David Roads and have replaced him with Harri Harrison (PALACE OF THE KING).Says AIRBOURNE in a statement: "David Roads has decided to leave the band to work in his family business. As the old saying goes, 'You can take the boy out of the farm, but you can't take the farm out of the boy.' We say, good on ya mate, well played and good luck! "Now to the future, and it's all guns blazing foot to the floor! Introducing you to our new AIRBOURNE brother, he's our longtime staunch mate Harri 'The Riff Doctor' Harrison. Possessing a gifted rock 'n' roll right-hand motor, he already 'fits in like a well-greased piston into a V8' and we are all pumped to be bringing his powerful locomotive-like rhythm with us to rock the summer festivals!" Roads states: "Many thanks to all the fans. It has been an absolute pleasure rocking out with you guys over the years. It was great to be a part of this wild AIRBOURNE ride! Cheers!" AIRBOURNE's latest album, "Breakin' Outta Hell", landed in the Top 10 in both the U.K. and the band's native Australia after its September 2016 release.
