Hailing from a tough Australian country town, these four boys have grown up with a healthy respect for the fine art that is foot to the floor rock n roll!
Airbourne manage to call upon the spiritual substance of Thin Lizzy, the gritty pub-crawling vibe of Motörhead, the grandiose histrionic theatricality of Judas Priest, the unifying audience domination of Iron Maiden and the sharp bite of their fellow Australians in the legendary AC/DC.

GUN now have new songs, a new bigger sound, but the same attitude and same swagger.
