Very Special Guests
Virgil and the Accelerators
Very special guests on the tour is Virgil and the Accelerators; a sensational young power trio, captivating audiences across Europe with their jaw dropping live performances.  Debut album 'The Radium' has received countless 5 star reviews. Classic Rock listed the band’s work in 'Best of 2011'. Top USA magazine Blues Rock Review placed the album second in their Top 40 albums of 2011. The band have been nominated for Best 'Young Artist' and 'Best Album' in this year’s British Blues Awards. With their new album they have single-handedly rewritten the blues rock template, producing one of the finest debut albums for many years.
To coincide with the September UK tour, “Cool Green Recordings” will release Tracer’s mid-priced mini album “LA?” in the UK on 27th August 2012.  The mini album was originally released in Australia in 2009.
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 Mucha nd 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 90’s stoner and 70’s classic rock continues to win them new fans.
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.  
Following a 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 embarked on a string of dates throughout Germany, Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the UK, taking time off only to sign a 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, Spaces In Between, released October 2011.
