Gold Coast rockers Salt & Steel have just released their new single ‘Taste My Words’ and announced an Australian wide tour to celebrate.
 
‘Taste My Words’, is a powerful song inspired by the cycle of life and death. It shares the message that life is precious and can pass in a moment.
 
This is the third of four interlinked singles to be released following the themes of the elements Earth, Air, Water and Fire.
 
In the past year, Salt & Steel have opened for the likes of Wolfmother, The SuperJesus and You Am I, as well as touring nationally with their own headlining tours. They have garnered a huge dedicated tribe of followers and received coverage and support from national and international press and radio such as Triple JABC Radio NationalAAA Backstage and many more.
 
’Taste My Words’ has been many years in the making, they could never really find the right way to express the song. ‘Taste My Words’ was recorded at Blind Boy Studios, Gold Coast with Brad Hosking (Amy SharkElectrik Lemonade). It was here that they delved into creating a new depth of space and time for the song.
 
This song is dedicated to their friend, Josh Fairweather (1990 – 2019).
‘Taste My Words’ is now available for download on all major online stores.

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.
