Australian rockers Airbourne are pleased to announce No Guts, No Glory as the title of their second album for Roadrunner Records. The album is set for release on February 23, 2010. No Guts, No Glory was recorded in Chicago with noted producer Johnny K (Disturbed, 3 Doors Down, Staind). The band relocated from their shared home in Warrnambool and moved into K’s spacious studio to record the album.
Frontman Joel O’Keefe says, “Working with Johnny was great, he's one of the boys. We basically just set up all the gear, chucked a few mics around and went for it! Good times!” Brother and drummer Ryan confirms the precarious microphone placement, “With this album, we threw the mics all over the building, left the doors and windows open and pressed record!"
Airbourne, known for their adrenalized, “work hard, play harder” style of rock, will embark on a two-month European tour in early February that will span two months and kick off with several UK dates. The band will commence US touring of major markets beginning in April. They will live on the road through the summer.
No Guts, No Glory follows up the band’s 2008-released debut, Runnin’ Wild, which went on to scan upwards of 250,000 units worldwide and earned the band heaps of critical accolades. Here’s a sampling of what the press had to say about Airbourne:
