“Tres Caballeros” Cover Art & Track Listing Revealed – Plus Updated North American Tour Dates!

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

Hey everyone-

I’ve been admittedly quiet lately because, since mid-February, I’ve been working nonstop on the new Aristocrats’ album Tres Caballeros…which is now finally done! Hallelujah!

This also means I’m fairly spent, so I’m going to be lazy (I know, so lazy, that’s me) and just use The Aristocrats’ e-mail voice as the official BellerBytes update for now. I hope you’ll forgive me. I’ll be back to myself soon, after a few days off in the mountains.

So, here’s some shameless promo text about our new album, of which I’m very, very proud, plus a bunch of summer tour dates. Maybe I’ll see you at one of them?…BB

****************

Well, look at what we have here: It’s the artwork for our third studio album Tres Caballeros:

The album is off getting manufactured right now! It’s 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 our 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 studios, where Van 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 usual trio firepower.

We can also now reveal that 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

And now, for the up-to-the-minute tour dates (several updates since the last listing)
