Irish/Aussie hard rockers, Jailbirds have today, released their debut studio album ‘The Great Escape’. Get a look/listen to their new single ‘Thrill of the Chase’ and details of their Bloodstock Open Air performance, this coming August in the UK. 

Irish/Australian rockers, Jailbirds release their highly anticipated debt album, The Great Escape, today via Golden Robot Records.

Pick up your copy of the album via this link.

To celebrate the release, the band have made a rollicking, old school Western music video for the song, Thrill Of The Chase which you can view/hear below;

The bands four on the floor rock anthems pull out the best parts of Oz Rock legends, AC/DC, Rose Tattoo and Airbourne, throws in the groove of Thin Lizzy, the histrionics of Iron Maiden and the stadium sound of the Foo Fighters and delivers something sorely lacking in today’s overly PC music climate… Balls.

Originally hailing from Sydney, Axel and Jay McDonald, the former a shit hot guitar player with the voice of a rock god, the later a tub thumping maniac, landed in Dublin, Ireland a few years back and hooked up with a couple of locals, Ed Orr, who plays a mean axe and Jamie Trimble, a four string god of thunder.

Pure, unadulterated rock n fucking roll is what the Jailbirds are all about. Having a good time all the time.

Big guitars, big drums, big smiles. The band released their first EP, Break The Silence in January of 2017 and immediately got a stack of airplay in Australia, Germany and the UK and had a nice little piece in Classic Rock Magazine!

Since the release of their EP, Jailbirds have been busting their asses on the live circuit, supporting a stack of great acts including, The Answer, Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown, Y&T and the mighty Anvil!
Several headline tours of their own around Ireland have also got the Jailbirds in top form to record their second album, which will be their Golden Robot Records debut.
