"Blistering old school punk rock outfit The Tracys are as clear an '80s punk revival as it gets." - Michael Haskoor, The Deli Magazine
Raised on '80s punk with a side of maple syrup, Alberta native Dave Klym (The Mike Plume Band, The Populars, Itch) is the driving force behind The Tracys monster hooks and blazing solos. On rhythm guitars, John Payne (Puppetbox) has been known to contribute harmonies as silky as his well-coiffed hair. Larry Mancini holds down the fort on the bass guitar with a little bit of whimsy, and a belly full of pizza. Anchoring this operation is drummer Matt Ernst, whose thunderous beats form the foundation for the group's aggressive style. With infectious melodies and gallows humor, The Tracys' brand of pop punk holds true to the sensibilities of old-school west coast punk. With the release of their 3rd record, Humdinger, The Tracys continue to hone their signature sound, taking aim at what ails us with a double barreled blast of music and mayhem.
