After a successful double header of UK performances with a memorable showing at the 2013 Download Festival (complete with guitarist Joel disembarking from the stage and flinging himself into the crowd, playing his guitar all the while) and a short but sweet appearance at the 2013 Metal Hammer Golden God Awards, Aussie hard rockers Airbourne have announced their return to the UK for a huge headline tour for the Winter of 2013.
Airbourne are looking to build on a high level of recent UK success, where their new album Black Dog Barking last month achieved their highest UK chart position so far. The tour will see Airbourne play ten headline shows across England and Scotland, and will also see them appear as headliners at the next installment of the annual Hard Rock Hell Festival. HRH takes place at the end of every November in Wales.
Coming along for the fun with Airbourne will be Cambridge rockers The Treatment, and fellow Brits, the stoner metal legends that are Orange Goblin. This tour promises to be one of the most fun of the busy Autumn / Winter 2013 UK tour scene, and full details can be found below:
