Who are Black Aces?
Formed in rural Australian town Bendigo by singer-guitarist Tyler Kinder, Black Aces set about forming a set of songs influenced by the greats of Aussie rock.
The 2020 summer will see the band return to the UK in support of the Never Change EP, with appearances at Scotland’s Wildfire Festival and Manchester’s SOS Festival already confirmed.
This will be Black Aces first overseas tour since their head turning, white knuckle 3 UK tours in 18 months throughout 2017/18- most recently stepping up to the plate as special guests on rock legend’s The Quireboys White Trash Blues 2018 UK Tour.
Black Aces returned to the studio in early 2019, once again with producers Mark Optiz (AC/DC, INXS, Cold Chisel, Kiss) and Colin Wynne (Bad//Dreems), to record their brand new EP 'Never Change’. Set for release on 31st October 2019, the EP is a selection of songs written whilst recovering from their extensive touring schedule to this point, both in Australia and abroad. With album number three slated for a 2020 release, the lads from Bendigo have no plans to slow down, and are proud of their humble garage beginnings.
After developing a strong live following across their homeland and sharing stages with the likes of Cosmic Psychos, Angry Anderson, Dallas Crane, and The Casanovas, Black Aces released their debut album ‘Shot In The Dark’ in early 2016 and took their live show all the way to Europe and the UK.
Through sheer hard work the album broke into the top 20 of the iTunes Australia rock charts, and the band ended a bumper year with a show stealing performance at Hard Rock Hell festival in Wales, alongside such heavyweights as Molly Hatchet, Living Color and Ratt- earning themselves a call back to the festival’s main stage alongside the legendary Dee Snider in 2017.
Black Aces second album ‘Anywhere But Here’ was released in late 2017. Written in a Bendigo garage, and recorded with legendary Aussie producer Mark Opitz and Colin Wynne, ‘Anywhere But Here’ deliverered on the promise of their debut- a diverse, driving rock record by a band determined to show the world how they play rock n’ roll.
Keep your eyes peeled, more 2020 Australian, UK and European dates are planned across the year.
