Aristo / Bio

Aristo, the electrifying get-up-and-go pop band from Cincinnati pushes forward with driving rock that you'll swear is familiar, all the while not being able to put a finger on the sound. The songs dive headfirst in the sea of self-reflection, overcoming the human condition with a full disclosure of their weaknesses. Their live performance tranfers the energy flawlessly, with true musicians that know their craft, and stage antics that turn the heads of even the haters. All skeptics now lovers, you can’t help but look forward to their next release.

Following the successful reception of Aristo’s debut single, the band has spent the year playing shows around the Midwest with international touring bands such as Uriah Heep (UK), Set It Off (Equal Vision Records), The Millionaires (Decaydance), Sparks The Rescue (Fearless Records) and Rocky Loves Emily (Tooth & Nail Records), as well as local favorites like Hawthorne Heights, Twenty One Pilots, This Love, and The Orphan, The Poet.

When the time came to start recording their debut EP, Aristo found the songs they’d written shared common themes throughout - love, heartbreak, betrayal, and the ultimate search for truth. These songs culminated in “This One’s For You, And Me,” a diverse collection of pop rock short stories, the recording of which was entirely self produced.

Aristo both polished and expanded their music with this EP, retaining their youthful sound in songs such as “Still Young” and “Butterflies” yet maturing in what has been acclaimed as a contemporary radio friendly pop rock EP. A golden track to check out on the EP is “This Isn’t A Sad Song (ft. Jane Smith).” This uplifting anthem has the perfect combination of tongue-in-cheek catchiness which calls to mind the likes of Say Anything and Panic! At The Disco.

Currently the band is in the studio recording their sophomore EP as it is set to release on May 12th, 2012.
