Airrace founder and guitarist Laurie Mansworth says :
"We are absolutely delighted that Airrace have signed to Frontiers. Our new single has the classic Airrace sound but with a heavier edge. We can't wait for you to hear the full album. I'm also thrilled to be taking the band on the road, which will be the first time the new line-up has toured together. It features my son Dhani (of The Treatment) on drums."

Of the tour co-headliners, he adds :
"I toured with Dennis, Rocky and Steve back in the 80's and have very fond memories of our time on the road together. It's a great double bill and I really hope rock fans up and down the UK will come and share a fun night with us."

Known in Hard Rock circles for being the band that saw the musical debut of drummer Jason Bonham, Airrace was the brainchild of former More guitarist Laurie Mansworth. 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 a slightly amended line-up), and they eventually issued a second album, 'Back To The Start', via Frontiers in 2011.

AIRRACE are:

Adam Payne - vocals
Laurie Mansworth - guitar
Rocky Newton - bass
Linda Kelsey Foster - keyboards
Dhani Mansworth - drums
