Since finishing our last tour, we’ve been itching to get back out as soon as possible. We’re so excited for these next two weeks in St. Pete, Orlando, Athens, New Orleans, Nashville, Tulsa, St. Louis, Chicago, Detroit, andMilwaukee. If you live in or near these places, we would very much like to see you. If not, we’ll of course be adding dates throughout the year.. Click on SHOWS above for ticket links.
Due to unforeseen, last-minute circumstances, our temporary Noah replacement, Ashley Dzerigian, will be unable to join us for this tour.
To fill in on bass, we’ve gone and recruited our buddy Adrian Rodriguez to step up to the task. He’s a quick study, monster bassist, and more-than-capable late-night drinking partner. We’ve hazed him and now welcome him proudly to our wolf pack.
We’ve been asked to perform on the show tonight. It’s always a blast stopping by here, and Kimmel has been a long-time supporter of our band since the early days. Plus it’s right in our backyard, so naturally we said yes. (Also, he serves booze backstage, so you know…)
The show airs at 11:35/10:35c on ABC. We’ll be on somewhere near the end of the program. Hope you can tune in! Click HERE for more info.
Whaaaat?! With the exception of four songs in Seattle (during which Noah was stuck in a cab), the five of us have played every single Airborne show together… But things happen—and by “things,” we mean babies.
So congrats are in order to our wayward bassist, who will soon be welcoming a new tiny person into his family. Does he know what he’s in for? Who knows. But to prepare for this inevitable upheaval in his up-until-now music- and motorcycle-based existence, Noah will be taking some time off to tend to his homestead and grapple with the sleep-deprived joys of young fatherhood.
In his temporary absence, we’ve asked our old friend and all-around badass Ashley Dzerigian to fill in and do what she does best. She’s a ridiculously talented bassist, and we couldn’t be happier to have her onstage with us.
Not so much a blur as a rapid-fire montage set to music and peppered with long bouts of sitting on tour buses and planes—and the occasional picturesque European town—our memories of 2013 are a bit incoherent at this point. So much happened this year, and still it wasn’t long enough. We’ve begun thinking about the new year, and yes, we’ve started putting together some tour dates in February, starting on the 5th in Florida..
Most tickets go on sale this Friday, December 20th at 10:00 a.m. (See below)
iTunes included the Dallas Buyers Club soundtrack—featuring our new song “Hell and Back“—on its “Best Soundtracks of 2013” year-end list. A seriously inspiring true story, this is a project we continue to be excited about. You can get “Hell and Back” HERE.
Today, we’re extremely excited to be announcing the release of our brand-new song “Hell and Back,” which will also be featured on the soundtrack of the upcoming film Dallas Buyers Club, starring Matthew McConaughey, Jared Leto, and Jennifer Garner. It’s the true story of Ron Woodroof, an AIDS patient in the mid-80s who defied federal regulations and pharmaceutical companies to get medication from abroad for himself and others. It’s an amazing story of fighting the system and a project we’re very proud to be a part of.
Our new album, Such Hot Blood, is out TODAY in the U.K. This special international edition of our album includes two bonus tracks: “Dublin” and “The Way Home.”

Eleven hours and 12 drinks later, we’re officially on British soil, and despite being at Heathrow, we’re immediately reminded of how much we’ve missed this place (the U.K., not Heathrow). At the moment, we’re either jetlagged or delirious or a bit of both. Either way, we’re so glad to be back—even if we do have to hit the road immediately and find a Roadchef somewhere for lunch…
Birmingham, we’ll see you tomorrow night (followed by Manchester, London,Glasgow, Leeds, etc.) In the E.U., we’ll be in Dublin, all over Germany, Holland, and Belgium. For tickets, click HERE.
We’re also very pleased to announce the release of Such Hot Blood in Mainland Europe TODAY and in the U.K. on Monday, September 30th.
This special international edition of our album includes two bonus tracks: “Dublin” and “The Way Home.” Thank you so much for waiting. We can’t wait to get across the pond next month.

We’re excited to announce the release of a brand-new song entitled “Hell and Back.” The song was written—as Mikel says—”in the helmet” while on a recent motorcycle trip across the Rocky Mountains from Omaha to Los Angeles.
You can be the FIRST to hear it by tuning in TOMORROW (Friday) to Philadelphia’s Radio 104.5, which will be exclusively premiering the track at 12:15 p.m. EDT. If you don’t live in the Philly area, you can stream it online RIGHT HERE.
In addition, SiriusXM’s Alt Nation will be playing “Hell and Back” throughout the rest of the day
