Common Tone Music Series Presents
GUITAR IS DEAD ALBUM RELEASE SHOW
New Orleans shredders GUITAR IS DEAD (Tristan Gianola, Maxwell Boecker, Moses Eder) celebrate the release of their eponymously titled debut album on Accretions Records, available on all streaming services on March 12, 2019. Joining them for the celebration are PSYDONIA and THE 3 BRAINED ROBOT.
GUITAR IS DEAD
Guitarist Tristan Gianola leads his trio GUITAR IS DEAD in energetic performances of his own breed of shredding loud-jazz, punk, metal and heavy rock. Described as “flagrantly virtuosic” (Dave Segal, The Stranger), Gianola wields his guitar with the energy of a young rock n’ roller who just picked up their first axe…and is ready to smash it into pieces. His musical instincts are embellished with unpredictable imagination as an improviser, composer and band leader. Backed by Moses Eder (drums) and Maxwell Boecker (bass), Gianola pushes himself to the edge of his musicianship, risking admirable precision for raw intensity. Guiding him are the influential guitar stylings of John Mclaughlin, Sonny Sharrok, Marc Ribot, Even Hermansen, Bill Frisell, Van Halen, Frank Zappa and many more.
