Biography

Trace; a surviving mark, sign, or evidence of the former existence, influence, or action of some agent or event; Origins of the band's first existence were in 1999, it all seemed right. Later on when naming the company "Armed Music Inc" more connections came to light that solidified the feeling on the fateful rightness of the name. Tracers are special bullets that are modified to accept a small pyrotechnic charge in their base. Ignited upon firing, the composition burns very brightly, making the projectile visible to the naked eye. This enables the shooter to follow the bullet trajectory relative to the target in order to make corrections to his aim. The ninth round in a machine gun belt is commonly utilized for the tracer bullet. This is TRACENINE

TraceNine Biography

By fusing real world events with captivating melody and justifiable anger, T9 go straight for the throat and detonate an unparalleled sound with mass appeal. They’ve scored nominations for best live and metal band, won $10,000 as Paragon Band Battle Champions, showcased at Sweden Rock Fest, Canadian Music Week and were Rock Search finalists in the same competition that helped launch the career of Finger Eleven. Renowned for delivering powerful live performances on the International Stage, T9 has entertained countless sold out crowds in support of bands like Hedley, State Of Shock, Matthew Good, Nazareth, Social Code, Bif Naked, The Salads, Faber Drive and Meredith Brooks.

TraceNine has experienced first hand the multiple levels of corruption which exist in the industry today. The last big heartbreak came as recent as January 2008 when a recording agreement with an independent label out of LA, worth over $1.2 million dollars, turned out to be fraudulent. After many broken promises and missed deadlines the band licked their wounds and set fire to the contract. Not ones to dwell on the negative, T9 took fate into their own hands and created a label, publishing and management company called Armed Music Inc. in silent partnership with a handful of trustworthy industry reps.

The members of TraceNine share a sincere passion for life, music and justice. From day one they made a pact to check their ego’s at the door and focus on what was best for the band. The end result is an extraordinary synergy which cannot be denied.

Lyrics

Ready To Roll

Written By: Matt Rahn

“READY TO ROLL”

I’VE BEEN LYING TO MYSELF FOR SO LONG
ALWAYS WAITING FOR THE PERFECT TIME
TO SEVERE TIES WITH A SAFE LIFE AND RISK
EVERYTHING ON A FEELING INSIDE
I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THE RIGHT TIME TO JUMP
NEVER LIVING MY LIFE FOR ME
ALWAYS DOING WHAT IS EXPECTED
I WANNA CHOOSE MY DESTINY
(PRE-CHORUS)
YOU KNOW THAT YOU WANT IT BUT DO YOU NEED IT
BAD ENOUGH TO TRY…ARE YOU WILLING TO

(CHORUS)
FALL ON YOUR FACE (ARE YOU READY TO ROLL)
IF YOU BITE THE BULLET?
RISK IT ALL JUST TO TASTE (ARE YOU READY TO ROLL)
WILL YOU BITE THE BULLET THIS TIME?

I’VE BEEN LIVING IN THE DARK FOR SO LONG
ALWAYS HAVING TO SACRIFICE
EVERYTHING THAT FUELS MY PASSION
ANYTHING THAT GIVES ME LIFE
I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THE RIGHT TIME TO JUMP
NEVER LIVING MY LIFE FOR ME
ALWAYS DOING WHAT IS EXPECTED
I WANNA CHOOSE MY DESTINY

(PRE-CHORUS/CHORUS - BRIDGE)
ARE YOU READY TO ROLL (3X)…WITH THE PUNCHES?
(CHORUS – END)

Betrayed

Written By: Matt Rahn

“BETRAYED”

ARE YOU ABLE TO SHUT YOUR MOUTH
LONG ENOUGH TO LISTEN?
CAUSE IF YOU’RE GOING TO BE MAD AT ME
YOU BETTER HAVE GOOD REASON…YEAH

(Pre-Chorus)
C’MON (4X) TAKE A CHEAP SHOT
YOU KNOW YOU WANNA…
C’MON (4X)
I CAN’T BLAME YOU

(Chorus)
I KNOW YOU FEEL BETRAYED
I LET YOU DOWN THAT DAY
EVERYTHING I SEE
IS JUST ANOTHER REMINDER OF YOU
YOU’RE NOT THE ONLY ONE
WHO’S DROWNING IN THIS PAIN

THIS WAS NO CONPIRACY
NO HIDDEN AGENDA
JUST THE SAD REALITY
THAT THE TRUTH HURTS

(Pre-Chorus)
(Chorus)
(Bridge)
OPEN UP YOUR MIND TO THE POSSIBILITY
THAT WHAT WE SAID TO YOU CAME OUT OF HONESTY
ACCEPT THE FACT THAT THERE WAS NO CONSPIRACY AGREE TO DISAGREE SO WE CAN LIVE PEACEFULLY

Spare Your Soul

Written By: Matt Rahn

"SPARE YOUR SOUL"

WHEN THE SHOT WAS FIRED
I HEARD IT FIRST AND THEN I SAW YOU FALL
YOUR BLOOD WAS SPILLED
I WAS FROZEN THROUGH IT ALL
FALLING DOWN

(PRE-CHORUS)
YOU WANNA SAVE THE KILLER?
CAUSE I WANT TO ANNIHILATE EM’!
SCREW THE VICTIMS OVER
AND REHABILITATE HIM

(CHORUS)
I WOULD GIVE MY LIFE FOR YOU (2X)
AND SACRIFICE IT ALL (2X)
IF GOD WOULD JUST ALLOW ME TO
I WOULD TAKE YOUR PLACE…ERASE
SPARE YOUR SOUL

WE LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE PUNISHMENT
DON’T SEEM TO FIT THE CRIME
FORGIVE…FORGET
I’M SICK OF WHAT’S POLITICALLY CORRECT!
FALLING DOWN

(PRE-CHORUS) (CHORUS)
(BRIDGE – SPARE YOUR SOUL) (CHORUS)
