Tracer have come a long way since forming in Adelaide, South Australia just under 10 years ago. They made two independent mini albums (the three-song 'Into The Night' in 2006, and the seven-track 'L.A.?' in 2009), but their debut proper came with 'Spaces In Between' released on Mascot Label Group in late 2011.
That album was widely praised and three European tours in support of it saw Tracer named the Best New Band at the
2012 Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards.
Radio support for Tracer in the UK saw them A-listed on the premiere classic rock radio station, Planet Rock, with a hat-trick of high octane rock singles including 'Too Much', 'Devil Ride' and 'Spaces In Between'.
In the past Tracer have been compared with top-drawer outfits Soundgarden, Queens Of The Stone Age, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Kyuss etc. The band's new album 'El Pistolero' sees them forging more of their own identity – not that the band mind the kind words.
