Singled Out: Airbourne's Live It Up

Today Airbourne frontman Joel O'Keeffe tells us about the song "Live It Up" from their brand new album "Black Dog Barking," which was released last week. Here is the story:

"Live It Up" this song came out of nowhere one hot summer night in Melbourne. Just messing around on the guitar drinking some Jack Daniels Single Barrel... came up with the verse riff and chorus riff then went outside for a cigarette and looked up at the full moon and then "Im a Hellraiser..." came... which lead onto you gotta "Live It Up" and so fourth.

Went back inside and started forming the guts of it, then the next day we went into the jam room put it together and recorded a demo of it, then Ryan and I worked on lyrics some more, we showed Brian Howes (Producer) then we put it through pre production and recorded it for the album.

Then we worked on the intro with Brian and Jay adding in the Air raid sirens, Bombers, Spitfires and Dive bombers and the big Bomb. The inspiration came from a month long booze binge of wild crazy nights in Melbourne that month... good times!

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and check out the video and learn more about the album and grab their upcoming tour dates right here!
