The Aristocrats have released their self-titled debut album, featuring nine tracks of instrumental rock goodness.
The band is made up of bassist Bryan Beller, guitarist Guthrie Govan and drummer Marco Minnemann, who will be touring the U.S. and Canada later this month in support of the release.
The three talented musicians gel well together, thanks to Beller’s underpinning groove and gnarly range of effects.
“Guthrie, Marco and I have been working on this CD since March,” Beller explains. “We each wrote three songs for it, and we worked like crazy to get it all just right. That said, it was great fun for all of us really getting to know each other musically, a process that’s continuing to this day.”
The bassist also expressed his amazement at the process and gratitude for fans, saying, “It’s also been a pretty incredible journey, as Marco and I just met Guthrie this year, and suddenly we’re a band with a record about to come out that lots of people seem to care about.”
