With a sound reminiscent of 90's grunge/stoner rock mixed with the everlasting bravado of 70's classic rock, Tracer is a driving, sonic sledgehammer of sound.
Cool Green Recordings is pleased to announce the October 3rd UK release of the new album 'Spaces In Between' from the southern Australian desert rockers 'Tracer'.

If Robert Plant and Jimi Hendrix made love to the sounds of Audioslave, they'd probably sound similar to the likes of Tracer. Based in Adelaide, South Australia, the trio embodies a sonic sledgehammer sound steeped in epic guitars, clever hooks and raw, uncompromising vocals. Tracer's unique blend of 90s stoner and 70s classic rock is winning them over new fans, and landed them with an international record deal.
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; and most recently, a record contract with highly respected Dutch label Mascot Records.
Following their 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 Mascot.
Upon returning to Adelaide, the band headed straight into the studio, and recorded what is to be their forthcoming album to be released in October 2011. Entitled 'Spaces In Between', the new album includes 12 in-your-face songs that will stick in your head for days, weeks and years to come.
The band will support the release of the new album by undertaking a nationwide UK tour supporting Royal Bitch in October 2011.
