"They remind me of us in early days when I see them playing live and giving it their all. They’re really cool guys and great players – definitely one to watch." - Ryan O'Keeffe, Airbourne
"Black Aces is like getting a new vintage AC/DC in 2017! And there ain't nothing wrong with that!... My new turn to album. Anywhere But Here" - Dee Snider, Twisted Sister
Formed in rural Australian town Bendigo by singer-guitarist Tyler Kinder, Black Aces set about forming a set of songs influenced by the greats of Aussie rock.
After developing a strong live following across their homeland and sharing stages with the likes of Cosmic Psychos, Angry Anderson, Dallas Crane, 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- earning themselves a call back to the festival’s main stage alongside the legendary Dee Snider in 2017.
Black Aces latest record ‘Anywhere But Here’ was released in late 2017. Written in a Bendigo garage, and recorded with legendary Aussie producer Mark Opitz (AC/DC, INXS, Cold Chisel, Kiss) and Colin Wynne (Bad//Dreems), ‘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.
After touring the UK again in November to celebrate the album’s release, the hard working Black Aces made it 3 UK tours in 18 months, stepping up to the plate as special guests on The Quireboys March 2018 UK Tour, garnering rave reviews and making countless new fans along the way.
With new music already in the can for a planned 2019 release, the future looks bright for the lads from Bendigo.
