Track Of The Day: Airrace
Melodic hard rock kings Airrace are back with a new album. They provide the latest Track Of The Day. Check out all the Tracks Of The Day here.
The UK band started in 1982. But despite gaining huge acclaim for their 1984 debut album Shaft Of Light, they split up the next year. However, as a 25th anniversary edition of the album was released in 2009, the band reunited.
Vocalist Keith Murrell, guitarist Laurie Mansworth, keyboard player Toy Sadler and drummer Jason Bonham from the original band were joined by ex-T’Pau guitarist Dean Howard and former Samson bassist Dave Boyce. They supported the likes of Thunder, Tesla and Winger, as well as headlining their own shws.
Bonham, Boyce and Sadler have all subsequently left to be replaced by Simon Dawson, Jim Reid (another original member) and Chris Williams, respectively. This is the line-up responsible for the long overdue second album, Back To The Start. Released on July 4 by Frontiers, this not only follows in the classic melodic rock tradition of the debut, but proves there’s a real energy about Airrace in 2011.
