Bryan Beller and The Aristocrats Announce Album, Fall Tour

The AristocratsBassist Bryan Beller has teamed up with guitar virtuoso Guthrie Govan and drummer Marco Minnemann to form The Aristocrats, a rock/fusion instrumental trio of epic proportions.

The group has announced that their debut album will hit shelves September 13th, with a three-week tour of the East Coast and Canada to follow. Beller broke the news in his e-newsletter.

“The good news is the CD’s done, we’re all very proud of it,” he says. “We’ve even set up our own record company to release it: BOING Music, LLC. And we’ve got a website under construction where you can get all the latest info, and eventually order to your heart’s content.”

The power trio has given fans a sneak peak of the album here (check out Beller’s gnarly solo at the 2:13 mark):

“Seriously,” Beller added, “Guthrie, Marco and I have invested a lot of time and energy into this project, and we really look forward to sharing it with you. Wish us luck!”
