One of the UK's pioneering AOR acts, Airrace was originally formed in 1982. Having recently re-signed to the Frontiers label, the band returns with Untold Stories. Founding member Laurie Mansworth says, "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 and shade in the writing. I have always liked a wide range of different musical styles, from ELO to Led Zep, and when writing these songs I incorporated many of my influences from over the years."

Untold Stories' lead single, "Summer Rain," is described by Mansworth as "a song for the summer. I wanted to write something upbeat with a positive feel, as there is far too much doom and gloom around at the moment. This song will hopefully take you to a sunny day and lift your spirit."

Known in hard rock circles for being the band that saw the musical debut of drummer Jason Bonham, Airrace was the brainchild of former More guitarist Laurie Mansworth. Following the acclaimed 1984 release of their debut album, Shaft Of Light, the band supported rock titans such as Queen, AC/DC and Meat Loaf, but they had crash-landed by the summer of 1985. It took a 25th anniversary reissue of the record to reunite the group (with a slightly amended line-up), and they eventually issued a second album, Back To The Start, via Frontiers in 2011.
