Two Aussie brothers went to the other side of the world and started a rock n roll band…
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 Trible, a four string god of thunder.
Throwing all their influences in the ring, the Jailbirds pull out the best parts of Oz Rock legends, AC/DC, Rose Tattoo and Airbourne, throw in the groove of Thin Lizzy, the histrionics of Iron Maiden and the stadium sound of the Foo Fighters and deliver something sorely lacking in today’s overly PC music climate. Balls.
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.
The as yet untitled album is scheduled for release later in 2018 as is a full blown European tour.
