AIRRACE to release 'Untold Stories' August 10th

One of the UK’s pioneering AOR acts, Airrace were originally formed in 1982. Having recently re-signedto the Frontierslabel, the band has announced a newalbum, entitled ‘Untold Stories’, which will bereleased on10th August.Founding member Laurie Mansworthsays,“We had a great time making the record. It’s not typically Airrace, with a lot of the material being more 70’s influenced.There is also a much wider spectrum between light andshade in thewriting. I have always liked a wide range of different musical styles, from ELO to Led Zep, and when writing thesesongs I incorporated many of my influences from over the years.”

Firstsingle, ‘Summer Rain’, isdescribed by Mansworth as“a song for the summer. I wanted to writesomethingupbeat with a positive feel, as there is far too much doom andgloomaround at themoment. This song will hopefully take you to a sunny day and liftyour spirit."
