Airbourne Release Second Single Backseat Boogie From Upcoming Album 'Boneshaker'

Friday, 11 October 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Airbourne have shared a new song from their upcoming fifth studio album.

Backseat Boogie follows the previously released title track in previewing the Dave Cobb-produced ’Boneshaker’, which is scheduled to arrive on October 25 via Spinefarm Records, following up 2016’s ’Breakin’ Outta Hell’. 

The song is another blistering riff-fest from the Australian rockers. Lead vocalist and guitarist Joel O’Keeffe revealed:

"The riff, this is one of those ones where Cobb (producer) walked out and said ‘What are you playing there?’ and I was ‘ah, I’m just playing this riff, it’s this riff I had in Australia, it’s got a bit of a vibe, I’m not sure.’ 

"He goes, ‘Aw man, we gotta do that one’ and he got behind the drums and picked up Ryan’s drumsticks and said ‘oh man, how does he play with these things, these things are baseball bats,’ and it was just really funny, and Ryan jumped on the kit, and we tracked it right then and there."

Drummer Ryan O’Keeffe added:

"It all happened really fast. The band’s lucky to have had a lot of time rehearsing together and playing together but we tracked songs before we even thought we tracked them. He’d say give it another go if you want, but the one you just did, and here’s the first one you did, and that’s the vibe."

Airbourne will accompany the release with a marathon European tour throughout the autumn, including UK shows in November.
