The rock/fusion power trio supergroup The Aristocrats – featuring Guthrie Govan on guitar, Bryan Beller on bass, and Marco Minnemann on drums – will release the live CD/DVD Culture Clash Live, on January 20th 2015. Captured in six different locations in five countries on three different continents during the band’s 100+ show Culture Clash World Tour, it showcases The Aristocrats in full flight: Virtuosic, melodic, spontaneous, outrageous, and still having more fun than any group of world touring musos has any right to have.
Culture Clash Live will be released on the band’s label, BOING Music, and available physically as a CD/DVD package containing 8 audio tracks on the CD and 9 cuts on the DVD. Only three tracks are the same performance on both CD and DVD – all others are unique, giving fans a chance to hear how the songs evolved while on tour. DVD bonus features include: a look behind the scenes at the video setup in Tokyo; an extra drum solo shot with 20 cameras; and demos from the Culture Clash album.
Physical units will first be sold through the band’s webstore at http://thearistocrats.spinshop.com. The digital audio-only will be available through iTunes and other major e-tailers. New for this release: Digital-only versions of the DVD will be available through LittleCast.
