  TRACER RELEASE NEW SINGLE TO COINCIDE WITH UK TOUR
19th April 2012

tracer



Due to popular demand, Australian power rock trio Tracer kick off their first nationwide headline UK tour at London's Islington O2 Academy on Tuesday 24th April. Tracer's new single, 'Spaces In Between', is released Monday 23rd April.

Tracer was recently voted third place in Planet Rock's Best New Band listeners' poll. Over the past four months Planet Rock has played the singles 'Too Much' and 'Devil Ride', two songs taken from Tracer's debut critically acclaimed album 'Spaces In Between'.

Tracer has captured the excitement and adrenalin rush of rock n roll. Tracer's sound embodies the same raw dynamics and edge to that of Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Queens of the Stone Age and Black Sabbath.

TRACER - 'SPACES IN BETWEEN' APRIL 2012 UK TOUR

Tuesday 24th April 2012: Islington O2 Academy 1, London
Wednesday 25th April 2012: The Tunnels, Bristol
Thursday 26th April 2012: Manchester Academy 3
Friday 27th April 2012: The Duchess, York
Saturday 28th April 2012: The Plug, Sheffield

With the release of 'Spaces In Between', Tracer has attracted rave reviews and interviews in Classic Rock (New Band of the Month), Total Guitar, Rock Sound, Guitarist, Fireworks and Powerplay. Their video for 'Too Much' has attracted over 50,000 hits on YouTube.

In the tradition of three-piece rock bands like Rush and Muse, Tracer's sound is the audio equivalent to Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now set inside the eye of a hurricane.

Hailing from Adelaide, South Australia, Tracer embrace a sonic sledgehammer sound steeped in epic guitars, thunderous riffs and raw, uncompromising vocals. Their Australian blend of 90s stoner and 70s classic rock continues to win them new fans.

Rising from the ashes of blues prodigy band The Brown Brothers in 2004, Michael (vocals, guitar) and Leigh Brown (vocals, bass) teamed up with drummer Andre Wise to form Tracer.

The following years have seen the trio find success with two independent releases; two international tours, including support slots for Little Red, Children Collide, The John Steel Singers and Cassette Kids.

Following a successful debut European tour in late 2009, Tracer returned overseas in September 2010 to take a coveted showcase slot at Germany's PopKomm Music Conference in Berlin. The band then set off on a string of dates throughout Germany, Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the UK, taking time off only to sign a long term record deal with Cool Green Recordings, a sub label of the Mascot Label Group.

Upon returning to Adelaide, the band headed straight into the studio, and recorded what was to be their debut album, released in October 2011. Entitled 'Spaces In Between', the album includes twelve in-your-face songs that will blow your head off.






WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.
