Remember the days before live concerts were put on hold? For a trip back in time –all the way to early 2020 – check out the Aristocrats’ new live record, Freeze!, which captures the instrumental rock-fusion power trio of electric guitar whiz Guthrie Govan, bassist Bryan Beller and drummer Marco Minnemann onstage in Spain just before the world went into lockdown.

Freeze! documents a particularly memorable period for the band so I think it’s really fortunate that we were able to capture this musical ‘snapshot’,” Govan said.
