Airbourne release explicit Rivalry video

Airbourne release alternative video for their track Rivalry – as 4th album Breakin’ Outta Hell becomes their highest-ever chart success

Airbourne have released an explicit video for their track Rivalry.

The Australian outfit released the original promo last month – with the new version featuring extra gory scenes not seen in the first clip.

The video has been issued to coincide with the news that the band’s fourth album Breakin’ Outta Hell has become their biggest chart success.

It topped the Canadian Official Hard Music Chart, reached no.3 in Austria, no.4 in Switzerland, no.8 on the US Official Hard Music Chart and no.13 in their homeland.

Speaking about Rivalry, frontman Joel O’Keeffe said: “The lyric probably came from us watching Football Factory or The Firm, one of those kind of films and I think at the time there was a big grand prix race on, lots of intense rivalries being reported in the media.

"Plus, as with other songs we’ve done, there’s an aspect here of rock‘n’roll taking a stand against those corporate forces that seek to restrict our freedoms, that try to shut down the little live venues, leaving bands with nowhere to really hone their craft.”

Airbourne are currently on tour across North America in support of Breakin' Outta Hell, the follow-up to 2013's Black Dog Barking.
