The Aristocrats are touring to promote their most ambitious and exploratory studio album yet, entitled You Know What…?, and will be supported by fellow rock-fusioners, Travis Larson Band.
With seven studio albums and three full-length performance DVDs, the award-winning Travis Larson Band is firmly rooted as one of instrumental musics premiere acts, having worked on record with Steve Lukather (Toto), Victor Wooten (Bela Fleck), Dave LaRue (Joe Satriani, John Petrucci, Dixie Dregs), Vinx (Sting, Herbie Hancock).
