AIRRACE : 'Running Out Of Time' - lyric video for single from new album out 10th August on F
Airrace originally formed in 1982 and was founded by former More guitarist Laurie Mansworth.
This brand new lyric video for current single ‘Running Out Of Time’ arrives just ahead of third album ‘Untold Stories’, which is released on 10th August. Mansworth states that the song is “about what bad tenants we are on this beautiful planet. We all need to stand up and be counted against unscrupulous politicians who are making these awful decisions that are having a massive impact on our environment."
Running Out Of Time’
The new album has already attracted rave reviews from several UK publications : “These are stories you’ll never tire of. 9 out of 10” CLASSIC ROCK “Killer melodies, great performances, brilliant groove. Untold Stories? This one has a very happy ending. 10 out of 10” POWERPLAY “This is a great effort from a much revered band to challenge the premier AOR big hitters” FIREWORKS “Very well composed songs and all perfectly delivered” ROCK SOCIETY Mansworth describes ‘Untold Stories as "not typically Airrace, with a lot of the material being more 70’s influenced. There is also a much wider spectrum between light and shade in the writing. I have always liked a wide range of different musical styles, from ELO to Led Zep, and when writing these songs I incorporated many of my influences from over the years.” An eight date UK tour in September to promote the album sees Airrace pairing up with Frontiers labelmates The Treatment, with support from Tequila Mockingbyrd. The itinerary is as follows : 21.09.18 CARDIFF Clwb Ifor Bach 22.09.18 LONDON Underworld 23.09.18 NORWICH Waterfront 24.09.18 CAMBRIDGE Portland 27.09.18 WOLVERHAMPTON Slade Rooms 28.09.18 SHEFFIELD Corporation 29.09.18 NEWCASTLE Cluny 30.09.18 GLASGOW Stereo Airrace is recognised as one of the UK’s pioneering AOR acts, as well as known for being the band that saw the musical debut of drummer Jason Bonham. Following the acclaimed 1984 release of their debut album, ’Shaft Of Light’, the band supported rock titans such as Queen, AC/DC and Meat Loaf, but they had crash-landed by the summer of 1985. It took a 25th anniversary reissue of the record to reunite the group (with an amended line-up), and they eventually issued a second album, ‘Back To The Start’, via Frontiers in 2011.
