Tracer release El Pistolero plus European tour news

  Hailing loud and proud from the land down under, Australian power rock band Tracer has just released their second full length album titled ‘El Pistolero’. Produced by Kevin Shirley who has also worked with Led Zeppelin, Rush and Iron Maiden to name just a few. Readers of Classic Rock magazine and listeners of Planet Rock should already know just how good Tracer’s sound is. Since forming in 2003 the band has released a three track album Into The Night in 2006. You can check this out and also get yourself a free download of this on the bands Bandcamp page HERE. Ever since then Tracer have been going from strength to strength. In 2009 Tracer released L.A?, 2011 saw the release of Spaces In between and El Pistolero was released on the 6th of May this year.

 In the past Tracer have been compared with top-drawer outfits such as SoundgardenQueens Of The Stone AgePearl JamFoo Fighters and Kyuss. Recorded in seven days at Revolver Studios in L.A. El Pistolero is an absolutely superb collection of high octane stoner anthems with biker attitude mixed with all the best elements of classic heavy rock and it certainly marks their own unmistakable identity. From start to finish this album is an absolute belter and well worthy of a 9/10 rating. The only reason that I do not give a full 10/10 is that I find it a tiny bit stereotypical even though Tracer do have a superb unmistakable style.

 HERE is a link to the official video for the first track on the new album with the same title.

  Starting on the 4th of June Tracer have a series of European dates, most of which are in the UK.

April press release round-up

CLUTCH TO SHAKE UP JULY WITH UK HEADLINE SHOWS
 
Back in January this year Maryland maestros Clutch played a one off, twice upgraded sell out gig in London in order to promote their stunning new album Earthrocker. Sadly I was not able to get to this gig, but I have heard Earthrocker which is the tenth stupendously good album from Clutch. The press release which I recieved states that 'The much-loved Maryland four-piece have been honing their live chops for more than two decades. There is no question that seeing Clutch perform is a revelatory experience not to be missed'. This is such a valid statement which I can personally vouch for as I have been blessed by seeing Clutch play live on a couple of occassions. They ARE simply magnificent…..
 
Clutch have just announced four more UK dates that will be shaking the following venues,
 
Mon 8th Jul –                NORWICH Waterfront
Tue 9th Jul –                 NOTTINGHAM Rock City
Wed 10th Jul –              MANCHESTER Academy 2
Thu 11th Jul –               LONDON Forum
 
Expect all shows to be packed full of heart, soul, and badass riffery! Tickets are priced £15 regionally / £16 London (subject to booking fee) and will go on sale on Friday 5th April at 10am. Tickets for Manchester & London are available from www.livenation.co.uk or www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
