Video premiere: Tracer – El Pistolero
It’s a blast: a still from the El Pistolero video
Tracer – winner of the Best New Band award at the 2012 Classic Rock Roll Of Honour – have released a video for the title track of their upcoming new album.
In an age where “guitar rock” has come to mean anodyne 80s-flavoured indie fare (with the fashion sense to match), this Australian three-piece favour dirt over beauty, distortion over subtlety and tinnitus over timidness.
A classic power trio in every sense of the term, theirs is a sound that merges the desert rumble of Kyuss with the epic scope of Zeppelin, topped off with a hint of grunge’s malevolence.
Tracer’s new album El Pistolero is out May 6 via Provogue – pre-order your copy via Amazon here!
