5/22New Album “Culture Clash” Artwork & Track Listing Revealed!

Hey there-

Bryan Beller here. I know it’s been a while since we’ve posted, but we were hard at work! We were busy making our second studio album. And now it’s done, and it’s coming out on July 16, and it’s called Culture Clash, and here’s the cover artwork:

Culture Clash  - Front Cover
Yes, we’re fighting a pig, a chicken, and a spaceman, in front of a biblically-referenced structure. :-)

Many thanks to Tom Colbie for the amazing artwork.

We’re also proud to reveal the track listing for the new album:

1. Dance Of The Aristocrats
2. Culture Clash
3. Louisville Stomp
4. Ohhhh Noooo
5. Gaping Head Wound
6. Desert Tornado
7. Cocktail Umbrellas
8. Living The Dream
9. And Finally

And there’s going to be a Deluxe Edition, with a Bonus DVD called Accept The Mystery: The Making Of The Aristoctrats’ “Culture Clash”. That will include studio footage and exclusive interviews with each member of the band.

It all comes out on July 16. Between now and then, we’ll be releasing previews of audio and video right here on this website, on our Facebook Page, as well as other media outlets. You might want to follow us on Twitter as well at @acratsband.

There will be a presale soon. There will be new t-shirts soon. It will all be available at our webstore very soon, and if you stay tuned you’ll be the first to know.

And if you’re in America, there will be a tour to promote it this summer! (Don’t worry, Europe and South America – we’ll get to you next year.) These are the final, official dates for the Culture Clash U.S. Summer tour:
