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 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.
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.
