The Aristocrats Announce North America Tour + Reveal New Album Title

Here’s the press release for the new Aristrocrats album and tour!





“virtuosic, melodic, spontaneous, outrageous and fun” [Guitar World]

The Aristocrats, (comprising guitarist Guthrie Govan, bassist Bryan Beller and drummer Marco Minnemann) have announced what will be their most extensive North American tour since their inception in 2011. The tour will begin with The Aristocamp on June 18th and continue right through to the end of August 2019, bringing the band’s unique and unrivalled brand of instrumental rock/fusion to fans across the USA and Canada. These dates will kick off a world tour in support of The Aristocrats’ highly anticipated fourth studio release, their most ambitious and exploratory album yet, which will be titled You Know What…? and will be available from June 28th 2019.


Over the past eight years The Aristocrats have released critically acclaimed albums, toured the world, and established themselves as one of the most musically original, refreshingly irreverent, and astoundingly entertaining instrumental rock-fusion acts on the planet.Anyone who’s witnessed their live musical high-wire act – employing random amounts of rock, jazz, pop, metal, and even traditional country – can attest that it is informed by the spirit of a true band, one whose improvisational soul allows for anything to happen onstage at any moment…including the occasional wink and nod at the audience.


Fans can expect to hear many new tracks from You Know What…? and some old favorites from their back catalogue, along with tales of the inspiration behind the tracks, for which The Aristocrats have become known. The Aristocratswill be ably supported by fellow rock-fusioners, Travis Larson Band.


The North American tour comprises two phases. Phase 1 dates are listed below, while phase 2 will be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets for phase 1 are on sale now.
