Tracer, April 2013 UK Tour

Following their headline UK tour in October 2012, and recently nominated for Best New Band at the 2012 Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards, Australian rock band TRACER return to the UK for a new tour that will coincide with the follow-up to their debut album Spaces in Between.

The new, as-of-yet untitled album will be produced by Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Silverchair, Cold Chisel), and is planned for late March/early April release.

Tracer’s 2013 UK tour starts at London’s Scala on Tuesday 9th April. Tickets will be made available as special 48-hour pre-sale from Planet Rock radio from 10th Wednesday October. Fans who take advantage of the Planet Rock pre-sale will get £1 discounted from their ticket.

A £1 ticket discount pre-sale is available from from Thursday 11th   October. Tickets will then go on sale to the general public on Friday 12th April from the 24 hour box office: 0844 478 0898,

Tracer was voted third place in Planet Rock’s “Best New Band” listeners’ poll. Over the past year Planet Rock has played the singles Too Much, Devil Ride, and Spaces In Between – all taken from Tracer’s critically acclaimed debut album Spaces in Between.

Tracer has captured the excitement and adrenalin rush of rock’n’roll. Their sound embodies the same raw dynamics and edge to that of Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Queens of the Stone Age and Black Sabbath.  The band recently recruited new bass guitarist, Pat Saracino, who replaced original member Leigh Brown.

With the release of Spaces in Between, Tracer has attracted rave reviews and interviews in Classic Rock (New Band of the Month), Total Guitar, Metal Hammer, Rock Sound, Guitarist, Fireworks and Powerplay. Their video for Too Much has attracted over 100,000 YouTube views.

In the tradition of 3-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 an unstoppable 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 90’s stoner and 70’s classic rock continues to win them new fans and turn heads.

When Tracer supported Royal Republic on their 2011 European tour, it soon became evident that Tracer was the band to watch. When the UK’s premiere classic rock radio station, Planet Rock, started playing the band’s rock anthem Too Much, listeners responded, and posted messages on the Too Much YouTube video wall by saying, “Planet Rock brought me here.” 

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.
