Hailing from country Victoria, Black Aces had a longing to hear the kind of music that had once forged this great country's musical back bone. They set about crafting such a band; a true blue, fire breathing, chest beating, riff n roll band! Drawing much of their inspiration from the Aussie greats in AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, Billy Thorpe and The Aztecs, The Angels and Cold Chisel, they cut their teeth on their local scene. Developing their sound, and earning a reputation, they built a line-up capable of delivering a powerhouse rock'n'roll show.
Eventually settling with the four misfits you can see today. Never afraid of a beer, and a biff, is Tyler Kinder on lead vocals and lead guitar, then there's resident locksmith Rhys Collier on rhythm guitar, and the ironically unrelated rhythm section of Alex McMillan on bass, and Pete McMillan on drums.
Touring across the width and breadth of Australia soon followed, all the while winning new fans in city and country alike. Not stopping there though, the lads hopped a plane to the mother land. A non-stop, beer fueled, 2 week tour of the UK ensued, exciting many a punter with vicious Aussie rock'n'roll the likes they hadn't seen since AC/DC's first foray in the mid 70's. Along the way they have had the pleasure of appearing alongside Aussie greats such as Cosmic Psychos, Dallas Crane, Bodyjar, Stand Alone, Kings Of The Sun, Something For Kate and Black Label, as well as with Australia's next generation of rock royalty such as Dead City Ruins, The Deep End, The Lazys, Massive, and The Delta Riggs.
2014 has seen Black Aces continue the momentum they have built, releasing their brand new 'Hellbound' EP, chock full of ripper tracks. They subsequently released the manic film clip for lead single 'On The Rocks. But the fun doesn't stop there. Work has already begun on their debut album, which is set to be completed before the year is out! So keep your ear to the ground.
Pounding out blistering rock'n'roll that you can’t help but bang your head and punch the air to, you will find it hard to leave a Black Aces show without a smile from ear to ear.
