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.”

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.
