Watch the New Airbourne Documentary
Australian rockers Airbourne have released a 47-minute documentary, It’s All for Rock ’n’ Roll, which you can watch it in its entirety above.
Described as a “raw, compelling, intimate and often hilarious glimpse into the crazy world of Airbourne,” the video is included as part of the band’s new box set, Diamond Cuts. Also included in the collection are the group's first three albums, Runnin’ Wild, No Guts. No Glory and Black Dog Barking, plus a B-sides collection, Diamond Cuts, which contains the previously unreleased tracks "Money" (which you can hear below) and "Heavy Weight Lover."
"It's All for Rock 'n' Roll" also happens to be the title of the last track on Airbourne's most recent album, 2016's Breakin' Outta Hell. Back in February, the band released a video for the song, which had been written as a tribute to late Motorhead icon Lemmy Kilmister.
“He was so gracious and such a wonderful guy,” Airbourne frontman Joel O’Keeffe said at the time. “We’re used to going on tour, doing our set, then an hour later hearing the immortal words, ‘We’re Motorhead and we play rock ’n’ roll. Then we’d hear the thunder of Lemmy’s bass, and the whole thing would erupt. That’s not there anymore. They’re still here in our hearts and they always will be. So we decided to write a song for Lemmy.”
The band recently confirmed the departure of bassist David Roads, who’s been replaced by Harri Harrison. They launch a European tour tonight in Russia, and end it in the U.K. on Nov. 22.
