Fresh off their wildly successful 2013-2014 Culture Clash world tour, The Aristocrats – by any measure the hottest new band in instrumental rock/fusion today – rewrote their own rules for their third studio album, Tres Caballeros. After two fairly raw trio albums, guitarist Guthrie Govan (Steven Wilson, Asia/GPS), bassist Bryan Beller (Joe Satriani, Dethklok) and drummer Marco Minnemann (Steven Wilson, Joe Satriani) 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. But not to worry – it’s all still tempered with a steadfast refusal to take themselves too seriously, and The Aristocrats are still having more fun than a fusion band has any right to have.
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.
The Hell No
For fans of: Janis Joplin, Iron Maiden, Concrete Blonde
The Hell No is a dynamic combination of punk 'n roll and blues rock, exuding free, raw emotion as they create sweeping melodies, powerful harmonies, and candid verses. Vocalist Brenna combines explosive soul and smoky blues, while Adam, lead guitarist, delicately and successfully intertwines metal, rock n’ roll, and blues riffs to soar alongside Brenna’s wail. Ash thumps a thunderous, yet dexterous bass that locks in perfectly with Dave Mac’s commanding and precise drum patterns, creating energetic rhythms that support lightning fast guitar work and intense, unrestrained vocals. Elements of hard rock, heavy metal, and blues come together in The Hell No for a unique, refreshing sound.
