John 5 will release his new album next month, and in celebration, has announced a special new live performance.
The famed guitarist — and his backing band The Creatures — will co-headline a special performance with The Aristocrats — Guthrie Govan (guitar), Bryan Beller (bass) and Marco Minnemann (drums) — on Sept. 1 at 1720 in Los Angeles, CA. The performance will be the first for John 5 and The Creatures following the release of the group’s new album Invasion on July 31.
John 5 (a.k.a. John William Lowery) and The Creatures debuted the video for Invasion‘s lead single ‘Zoinks!‘ in January. He talked about his anticipation for the upcoming performance in a recent interview.
“John 5 and The Aristocrats — It doesn’t get much better than that,” Lowery said. “It’s one show only and you’re not going to want to miss it. It’s going to be a very exciting night, and definitely one to remember.”
The Aristocrats shared Lowery’s thoughts in a separate statement.
“We always say that anything can happen onstage at an Aristocrats show — and that goes double for a John 5/Aristocrats double bill!,” the band said. “We’re psyched because the Aristocrats and John 5 are obviously coming at the instrumental rock thing from just completely different angles, and neither one of us is playing it straight down the middle. Should be a fun night for anyone in L.A. who likes their music loud and bent.”
The Travis Larson Band will serve as the opening act for the concert.
