It seems like yesterday we were championing the sibling-led trio that is Tracer. Australia's consistent ability to export rock bands has been continuing apace, with young Tracer proving to be a bit of a catch. Let's put it this way, our last article covered their then-forthcoming April tour which went on to sell out, just like their 2011 shows in fact.
Pitched somewhere between grungers like Soundgarden, Paw and Alice in Chains, Tracer add in a sprinkling of lowdown 'n' dirty classic rock from the decades of denim and spandex. Know Saxon, AC/DC, The Cult and ZZ Top? You'll probably 'get' the brothers Brown and drummer Andre Wise. Feeling Velvet Revolver and the other aforementioned '90s stoners? Form a queue right here. Need proof? Have a wee listen to recent second single, 'Devil Ride', taken from the acclaimed album 'Spaces in Between', a collection of motorik metal malevolence aimed squarely at the head and neck.
Clearly, we can't get enough of Tracer because they've announced yet another UK tour, this time for the autumn. With the possible threat of more new material by then, the trio will have already been buoyed by several European festival appearances and a support slot for Black Label Society. Thinks are indeed looking up and up.
Confirmed tour dates so far include Wolverhampton on 26th September, followed by Manchester, Newcastle and more until Brighton on 7th October. Tickets are available via us now, priced at £12. Some towns such as Bath and Poole haven't experienced Tracer before so you'd better be ready to get tickets quick. A London show will no doubt be announced in due course.
