In a surprise announcement, Airbourne have announced that long-time rhythm guitarist David Roads has left the band and has been replaced by Harri ‘The Riff Doctor’ Harrison.

The following message was posted on Airbourne‘s Facebook page earlier today:

To all Airbourne fans and friends we’ve got one Hell of an update for you!

David Roads has decided to leave the band to work in his family business. As the old saying goes, ‘you can take the boy out of the farm, but you can’t take the farm out of the boy’. We say, good on ya mate, well-played and good luck!

Now to the future, and its all guns blazing foot to the floor! Introducing you to our new Airbourne Brother, he’s our long time staunch mate Harri ‘The Riff Doctor’ Harrison. Possessing a gifted Rock’n’Roll right hand motor he already ‘fits in like a well-greased piston into a V8’ and we are all pumped to be bringing his powerful locomotive-like rhythm with us to rock the summer festivals!

Cheers and see ya soon rockers! – Joel, Ryan & Streety

David Roads would like to say “Many thanks to all the fans. It has been an absolute pleasure rocking out with you guys over the years. It was great to be a part of this wild Airbourne ride! Cheers!”
