Alien Weaponry to open for Aussie hellraisers Airbourne

Alien Weaponry to open for Aussie hellraisers Airbourne

Airbourne are taking Kiwi teen metallers Alien Weaponry on the road with them when they tour New Zealand early next year.

Presented by The Rock FM, Australia’s raucous rockers Airbourne (Joel O’Keeffe, Ryan O’Keeffe, David Roads and Justin Street) will play the Kings Arms in Auckland on Thursday, January 26, the San Francisco Bath House in Wellington on Friday, January 27 and CPSA in Christchurch, on Saturday, January 28.

Airbourne left a trail of destruction with their first three albums RUNNIN’ WILD; NO GUTS. NO GLORY and BLACK DOG BARKING. Now their latest, 2016’s BREAKIN’ OUTTA HELL is inflicting the same sort of damage, with the kick-ass track ‘Rivalry’ being blasted on The Rock.

Alien Weaponry (14-year-old Lewis de Jong, his 16-year-old brother Henry and 14-year-old Ethan Trembath) will open for Airbourne at all three gigs. The young thrash metal band from Northland made New Zealand music history this year when they won both the Smokefreerockquest and Smokefree Pacifica Beats competitions. Their stonking new tune ‘Urutaa’ (watch here) is out now.
