Preview the Aristocrats’ New Album ‘Tres Caballeros’

Posted on June 2nd, 2015 by MDuffy

Tres Caballeros
The Aristocrats have a new album called Tres Caballeros scheduled to drop on June 23, and for those that just can’t wait to sample the new music, the trio has released a teaser trailer that covers the entire record.

Recorded at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, Tres Caballeros is the Aristocrats’ third full-length and represents another step in their layered fusion stylings.

“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,” guitarist Guthrie Govan told Guitar World.

“The decision to road-test our new material in front of a live audience before commencing the recording process; the choice to record in a studio that had some thoroughly inspiring rock and roll ‘mojo;’ our sudden urge to become more bold and experimental with overdubs rather than feeling any pressure to record exclusively in a strict ‘trio’ format … all of this has had some kind of positive effect on the way the new record came out.

“Plus, I think the material on this album is some of the most interesting stuff we’ve ever written for each other, so … here’s hoping our noble listeners will like the finished product as much as we do!”
