Airbourne Reveal New Album Release Plans + Six Flags Roller Coaster Partnership

Roadrunner Records

Aussie rockers Airbourne are making the most of this thing called rock and roll, providing the “rock” with their upcoming album ‘Black Dog Barking’ and announcing a partnership with Six Flags that offers the “roll” as their music will be used in association with the theme park’s new roller coaster.

The ‘Black Dog Barking’ album is the band’s third release and it’s now on the schedule for a May 21 release through Roadrunner Records. The band hooked up with acclaimed producer Brian Howes on the disc. The group stated off the effort, “A lot of thought and effort has gone into this record not only by the band, but by the production crew who worked countless hours, seven days a week, even through Christmas and New Year’s Eve to achieve the best possible performances, backed by real undying tones. Now we’re handing it over to you … so crank it up, crack a beer and stick some rock ‘n’ roll in your ear!”

The band have yet to announce any North American shows, but several European appearances running from late May into early July have been revealed.

As for their partnership with Six Flags, the band created a song for the theme park’s Full Throttle roller coaster. The “full throttle” edition of ‘Live It Up’ will be released by the band to coincide with the opening at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, Calif. later this spring and will be played in the park’s entertainment system. The ‘Full Throttle’ coaster is described as the tallest, fastest looping roller coaster in the world.

In addition to ‘Live It Up,’ Six Flags will also feature additional music from various Roadrunner artists throughout their park. ‘Live It Up’ will also appear on the ‘Black Dog Barking’ album.
