The Aristocrats - New Album and U.S. Tour

Fresh off their wildly successful 2013-2014 Culture Clash world tour, The Aristocrats rewrote their own rules for their third studio album, Tres Caballeros, which is slated for release in late June. After two fairly raw trio albums, guitarist Guthrie Govan, bassist Bryan Beller and drummer Marco Minnemann set up camp at legendary Sunset Sound studios in Hollywood, CA, where Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones and Van Halen all recorded landmark albums.  The result: Nine new compositions of greater sonic depth and breadth than ever before, with unique textures and lush layering augmenting the band’s preternatural ability to improvise both individually and as a group at the highest levels possible. 


“We’ve learned a lot since we started this band – four years, three studio albums, two live DVDs and about a billion notes ago! – and I think our latest offering reflects this in all kinds of ways,” says guitarist Guthrie Govan. 

The Tres Caballeros tour will bring the band’s new musical vision in trio form to stages across North America in their most ambitious jaunt yet. The Aristocrats will be supported by fellow rock/fusion power trio The Travis Larson Band.  Full details on each date can be found on the Aristocrats website calendar page at: http://the-aristocrats-band.com/shows/
