The rock/fusion power trio supergroup The Aristocrats – featuring Guthrie Govan on guitar,Bryan Beller on bass, and Marco Minnemann on drums – can now reveal the cover art and track listing for their third studio album Tres Caballeros, which is due for an early summer release (exact date TBA). The album will be released in a Standard Edition (CD) and Deluxe Edition (CD/DVD), which will include a 30-minute documentary featuring live and in-studio footage, outtakes, demos, and more.

The “8-bit” artwork represents a new spin on the band’s tradition of animated covers, and was created by Tom Colbie, who designed the cover art for the band’s previous two releases,Culture Clash and Culture Clash Live.

Tres Caballeros was tracked over ten days in February at world-famous Sunset Sound, whereVan Halen (1), Led Zeppelin IV, and Rage Against The Machine’s The Battle Of Los Angeles were tracked, among hundreds of others. 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.

The track listing for Tres Caballeros is as follows:

  1. Stupid 7
  2. Jack’s Back
  3. Texas Crazypants
  4. ZZ Top
  5. Pig’s Day Off
  6. Smuggler’s Corridor
  7. Pressure Relief
  8. The Kentucky Meat Shower
  9. Through The Flower

The Tres Caballeros tour spans eight weeks across North America, including the band’s first visit to Canada in four years. The Aristocrats will be supported by fellow rock/fusion power trio The Travis Larson Band. Full details on each date can be found on the Aristocrats website calendar page at: http://the-aristocrats-band.com/shows/

St Augustine’s Environmental Youth Crunch digs Woody Guthrie, CCR, swimming, camping, bikes, making their own fuel and beer, all outdoors Florida has to offer, and sings about Florida environmental politics. EYC plays pop punk rock. They talk about ideas important to them between songs-rare around here these days given the swell to embrace the nightlife and not the day we’ve got to navigate too. EYC steers through both fluidly and with purpose. They offer ideas and actions towards something heavy directly affecting us and they do it in their sweaty underwear. Let’s Ride is their first full length album. Let’s Ride our rusty bikes into the ocean. . .Let’s Ride on biodiesel touring throughout Florida. . . Let’s Ride in opposition to those Disney cowboy chumps on the cover in the rodeo to overdevelop EYC’s beloved state.

BRAINWORMS / TUBERS | BRAINWORMS / TUBERS | 7

The underground railroad from St. Augustine to Richmond, VA finally comes to listeners in the form of TuberÕs split with the almighty Brainworms. Brainworms unleash two tracks on their 3rd split 7? in a year, one being Jays Big Date which is the zingiest of zingers yet by the band and the debut of Josh Small on guitar with the band. Track two is a cover of Rites of Spring Ð For Want Of, recorded at the same time as the live side of Which is Worse. Tubers, who have circuited the Florida punk scene in bands one might call spastic hardcore such as Twelve Hr. Turn, Solid Pony, and Environmental Youth Crunch, find a mellower spot to sit while not letting aggressive tendencies completely fall by the wayside. Tubers are the perfect complement for a party that wants to let loose, have fun, and, you know, maybe get a little weird on the dance floor.
