Not bad. His voice can get a little annoying at times. But they sound like the kind of band, if they were opening for someone I wanted to see, I'd get there early enough to listen to these guys.

Not bad.






From pirate-smile.de:


On July 27th, 2015 Tracer will release their new album WATER FOR DOGS THIRSTY about OMN Label Services – her third album already and at the same time highlight and expression of ten years of hard work, merciless conviction and an intuitive rock’n'roll consciousness that Tracer will drive only to further heights. It is the third Tracer album and the first to feature new bassist Jett Heysen-Hicks alongside frontman/guitarist Michael Brown and drummer Dre Wise. The record crackles and thrums with excitement and a rejuvenated sense of purpose; the sound of a great band becoming greater… rewired and reborn!

Recorded at Echo Bar Studios in North Hollywood, LA and produced by the band themselves, in collaboration with master engineer and mixing maestro Erik Reichers, this is not just the finest record Tracer have ever made: it’s a bar-raising monument to the passion and belief that continues to drive this band forward.

From the spine-tingling dynamics and rumbling grooves of its opening title track – think Nirvana reimagined by Kyuss at the eye of a psychedelic sandstorm – the driving garage rock of We’re Only Animals through to the downbeat drawl and Seattle-tinged menace of Lazy, the turbocharged, bowel-rattling stoner surge of Astronaut/Juggernaut (Michael; “We were really trying to blow up speakers with bottom end with this one!”) and the devastating emotional suckerpunch of Tremors, the album’s stunning climax,WATER FOR THIRSTY DOGS is a thrilling amalgam of rock music’s past, present and future.

Both Jett and Dre are on blistering form throughout these ten new songs, locking into unstoppable grooves with preternatural efficacy while underpinning those unmistakable Tracer riffs with robust flair and insouciant cool. And above it all, Michael Brown’s towering voice delivers the final piece of the sonic jigsaw. “It was incredible,” says Michael, of hearing the completed new album for the first time .

“It was the sound we had always had in our head for the band. The drums were loud and live, the guitars were aggressive and angry, the bass held down the low end like an elephant and I had never been happier with my voice. The songs took you on a journey, they built to climaxes, they made me cry, they made me want to pour beer on myself and party! Tremors, a love song I had written, gave me goosebumps. A feeling I had only ever felt when listening to Pink Floyds ‘The Great Gig In The Sky’. It was epic and is now the crowning achievement of Tracer’s career to date.”

The band, formed in Adelaide, South Australia have released two previous albums – 2011’s debut SPACES IN BETWEEN and 2013’s EL PISTOLERO (Produced in collaboration with esteemed producer Kevin Shirley (Iron Maiden / Led Zeppelin / Silverchair / Joe Bonamassa) – both celebrated by fans and media alike.

Hate the album title and it's a bit grungy sounding for my liking. Yeah, sorry dudes, not a fan at all. Very grungy sounding and not what I dig at all.


Surprised this'd be your kind of thing, Lindsay.

Generally not, but I stumbled upon them live once (opening up for some other bands, with about 4 people watching) and they were fantastic, so have kept an ear open for them ever since.

They are one of those bands that are far more impressive as a live act, than studio.

    • The Aussies right, this is against the rules, this is a no crossover thread
    • C'mon Doggy. We've been over this. Posts in this thread must be of a certain standard.
    • No he can push all he wants, he can bitch and fight and argue, and say the most insane liberal shit he can think of, but first this morning I had to fucking hear it from Karisa, then I get on here to escape her and Glens being a disrespectful motherfucker, we can talk shit, and insult each other, and clown and make fun, and be mean as we want, but when you start talking to me like im a fucking punk then my attitude will follow suit, Ive gone above and beyond to treat HH community with respect and I am about as laid back as your going to find me on here, but if we are gonna be mean, then just get it out in the open, cause I got zero problem with mean, but dont think for a second im not gonna be mean back, theres a huge line between trolling and talking to someone like their a bitch, trust me I know, I do both daily, this is the last im going to say about this, this is my position, so laugh it up, make your jokes, talk your shit, then drop it, fuckin liberals, lol
    • What is the new Covid variant and why is it a concern? Scientists have detected a new Covid-19 variant called B.1.1.529 and are working to understand its potential implications. About 100 confirmed cases have been identified in South Africa, Hong Kong, Israel and Botswana.   B.1.1.529 has a very unusual constellation of mutations, which are worrying because they could help it evade the body’s immune response and make it more transmissible, scientists have said. Any new variant that is able to evade vaccines or spread faster than the now-dominant Delta variant may pose a significant threat as the world emerges from the pandemic. Dr Susan Hopkins, the chief medical adviser to the UK Health Security Agency, said the R value, or effective reproduction number, of the B.1.1.529 variant in the South African province of Gauteng, where it was first found, was now 2 – a level of transmission not recorded since the beginning of the pandemic, before restrictions began to be imposed. For an R of anything above 1, an epidemic will grow exponentially.
    • Now kids... fight nice. This is the Flamefest section, so there's a bit more latitude here than in other areas. I think Glen is deliberately pushing your buttons, i.e., trolling you... especially since he "couldn't care less about U.S. politics"... *ahem*. He know he can push you into a rant. Don't fall for it. Ignore him like most of the rest of the people here do.
    • While I'm in the atheist camp I do not have a problem with most of the people who have faith in God....to each their own...as for Xmas , it is a holiday and should be about family and if religion is a necessary part of it for you, then so be it.....
