Bio

Mace & The Motor are an exciting, tight-as-f@%K, Rock three piece. Hailing from Toowoomba, Queensland, the band consists of Luke Anderson (Drums) the newly appointed Liam Gould (Bass) and Mace McGregor (Vocals and Guitar) In June 2012 the Mace & The Motor were chosen to open Triple J’s ‘One Night Stand’ in Dalby. The trio, who shared the stage with Matt Corby, Stonefield, 360 and Temper Trap, were among 350 entrants who entered for the chance to play at the festival that attracted over 15,000 people. The Triple J press released stated: “Mace & The Motor’s Unearthed profile captured our attention with tunes that nimbly shift from no-shits-given rock and roll, with a definite Phil Jamieson & co influence, to a weathered, bluesy twang. It was difficult to ignore the trio and the rocking grunt they’ll add to the One Night Stand line-up”. In September Mace & The Motor ventured to Ian Haugs’ (Powderfinger) Airlock Studios in the Brisbane hinterland to record their first studio Ep. With Yanto Browning at the helm the 5 track offering (soon to be released) includes the new single ‘You’re a Woman! Yeah! Alright! Wow!’ which the band has made available for free direct from their website maceandthemotor.com The bands self recorded debut Ep, from which the track ‘Wanted’ pricked the ears of Triple J, is available from maceandthemotor.bandcamp.com Over the past 3 years the band has supported Aussie rock legends You Am I and The Hard-On’s, have also locally supported The Datsuns, British India, The Redcoats, College Fall and The Shake Up and regularly play with local acts Suicide Swans, One Dirty Bird, Project 62 and The Fuss. Mace & The Motor exude a passion that jumps from the stage, stomps on your foot and dares you to walk away. Luke, Liam and Mace harbour an arsenal of sticky, wet and deliciously warm rock and roll. Screaming sweet vocals ride a thunderingly tight rhythm section of mature and established tunes which start and finish before you realise you've had your arse kicked.. 6th July at The Beetle Bar Brisbane (QLD) with Monkiblood, Suicide Swans and Jackson Dunn 26th July at The Spotted Cow Hotel Toowoomba (QLD) with Suicide Swans and Falconhood 24th August at The Spotted Cow Toowoomba (QLD) with The Vernons

The people of Dalby are in for a treat! Really enjoyed the three songs I've heard so far. Wanted is my favourite. Super catchy toe tapper.
