Spending their early years cutting their teeth on local stages, Black Aces finally landed on the rock solid line up of Pete McMillan on drums, Alex McMillan on bass and Jazz Morrice on rhythm guitar.
After developing a strong live following across their homeland and sharing stages with the likes of Cosmic Psychos, Angry Anderson, Dallas Crane, The Delta Riggs 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.
After signing a worldwide deal with UK label Off Yer Rocka, 2017 sees Black Aces return with their new record ‘Anywhere But Here’. Written in a Bendigo garage, and recorded with legendary Aussie producer Mark Opitz (AC/DC, INXS, Cold Chisel, Kiss) and Colin Wynn (Bad//Dreems) at the pairs’ Thirty Mill studios, ‘Anywhere But Here’ delivers 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.
Black Aces are returning to the UK to celebrate the release of their new album in November, and have been invited back to the main stage of Hard Rock Hell festival. Needless to say, the band plans to once again take it right up to the big boys.
With a must see live show, and their new album in tow, the future looks bright for the boys from Bendigo.
