Airbourne will bring the thunder from down under to the United States and make a run on the road with Shinedown and Bush.Thirteen dates are set in advance of the release of the bands third album "Black Dog Barking" which will hit stores on May 21.

The band had this to say about the making of "Black Dog Barking" : “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!”

Airbourne has also hooked up with Six Flags. The band will offer up the “full throttle” edition of ‘Live It Up’ that will coincide with Six Flags’ Magic Mountain’s Full Throttle roller coaster.

Hopefully, the Hub City will be included on the Texas leg of the tour later this summer.

Airbourne will play these dates in the U.S. starting in April.
