Next week, Jet embark on their first national Australian tour since reuniting to support Bruce Springsteen in 2017.

2018 also marks the 15th anniversary of the release of their seminal debut album, Get Born. To celebrate the amazing milestone, today Mushroom Group’s Bloodlines label is proud to release the high-octane live recording: Get Born Live.

Recorded at the iconic Forum Melbourne back in 2004 and never previously released on CD, this is a must-have for all Jet fans and lovers of Aussie rock & roll!

The 14-track digital and CD versions also come complete with two high octane covers: The Monkees’ ‘Sweet Young Thing’ and ‘That’s Alright Mama’, the latter penned by bluesman Arthur ‘Big Boy’ Crudup, and famously performed by both Elvis Presley and The Beatles.

For the vinyl fans, the 180 gram old skool black vinyl disc contains 12 killer live originals and will be signed by the band (if pre-ordered at any of the bands’ upcoming Australian shows).

Jet are one of Australia’s greatest and most successful rock bands, with over six and a half million records sold worldwide and multiple Gold singles across their career.

Brothers Nic (vocals) and Chris Cester (drums), Cameron Muncey (guitar) and Mark Wilson (bass) enjoyed dizzying global success with the release of their 2003 debut long-player, Get Born.

Also celebrating their 15th year anniversary is iTunes, who used the lead single from that album in their global TV campaign to drive Apple’s infamous 2003 iPod commercial, which landed ‘Are You Gonna Be My Girl’ at #1 on triple j’s Hottest 100. Together with huge follow-up hits ‘Cold Hard Bitch’‘Get Me Outta Here’‘Look What You’ve Done’ and ‘Rollover DJ’, it pushed Get Born to sell an amazing 3.5 million+ copies worldwide in its first 12 months.

Australia has form when it comes to producing great rock music.

ACDC, Cold Chisel, The Divinyls, Rose Tattoo, Beasts of Bourbon, The Scientists, Bored, The Mark of Cain, Magic Dirt, Silverchair, Jet, Birds of Tokyo, Wolfmother and Airbourne are just a few of the bands who have led and continue to lead the way, locally and internationally today.

Adelaide bred three-piece outfit Tracer are hoping to earn their spot on that list soon.

Two EPs and years spent honing their live shows saw them picked up by the Mascot Label Group and introduced to the European rock scene.  Their 2011 debut LP, Spaces In Between gave yet more hints about the band’s potential and was quickly followed by three successful European tours and the Best New Band award at the 2012 Classic Rock Awards.

With their new album El Pistolero due to be released here on July 5th, the hard rocking outfit have well and truly started to fulfil their potential.  Produced by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Silverchair, Cold Chisel, Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden) El Pistolero is on track to make Tracer the rock band that everyone is talking about  in 2013.

Mexico is the spiritual home of El Pistolero.  Taking inspiration from the cinematic stylings of Robert Rodriguez’s classic film Desperado, the Tex Mex vibe works well with the classic rock, stoner and grunge sounds on the album.  From atmospheric strings, heavy and sweaty rock, stomping drums and driving riffs, El Pistolero takes aim with gleeful macho abandon delivered with high calibre skill.

Great reviews and strong airplay support has further raised the band’s profile in Europe, but now the trio are looking forward to coming home.

Tracer return to celebrate the Australian release of El Pistolero and will be joining another of the great Australian rock bands The Angels, on the road for a number of shows in July and August.
