Aussie hard rockers Airbourne have released a previously unheard track called 'Money' which you can listen to right here.

'Money' is included in Airbourne's forthcoming Collectors Box set called 'Diamond Cuts' which features their first three albums, 'Runnin' Wild', 'No Guts No Glory' and 'Black Dog Barking', a B-Sides album, a DVD and plenty more. This will be released by Nettwerk on 29th September.

'Diamond Cuts' celebrates the ten-year anniversary of Airbourne's hard rockin' debut 'Runnin' Wild' and will be available in limited edition vinyl and CD formats.

The B-Sides collection features two previously unavailable tracks, 'Money' and 'Heavy Weight Lover', plus a bonus unseen documentary DVD of the band, 'It's All For Rock N' Roll' - all housed in a collectable slipcase box featuring original 'Diamond Cuts' artwork.


Joel O'Keefe said in an interview with Loudwire:

"'Money' was found covered in piles of dust and reel to reel tape. It was part of the recording sessions for 'No Guts No Glory' and for some reason it just didn't make the album, but hearing it again today we're pumped to get it out there.

"'Show Me The Money' is a double entendre and we'll let you figure out what it's about.

"It's part of the 'Diamond Cuts' release all on vinyl with a bunch more other B-Sides that are rare and only ever been released on special editions and never on vinyl. Along with the bonus documentary movie, 'Its All For Rock N' Roll', it's a grab snapshot of the first three albums of the band."

Airbourne will be touring across Europe later this year with support from fellow Aussies Desecrator from October 3rd to November 8th and Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons from November 11th to November 22nd. The full dates are.

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
