Airbourne have released a video for the song Rivalry, from their forthcoming CD, Breakin’ Outta Hell, out September 23 rd through Spinefarm Records. View the clip below.

It’s the second song to be released from the band’s fourth album, following the title track, which can be viewed here.

Frontman Joel O’Keeffe says, “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.”

    1. Yes they do, rock! And that’s all that matters! It’s hard to be original in this day and age, just about every riff, beat, and lyric has been done and said, so don’t overanalyze, just enjoy the music! 🙂
