Hey, ACE fans.  Aaron here.  I’m excited to finally announce the news:

Our new album, “The Age of Misinformation,” came out today!

A conceptual work about the destructive power of lies and the search for truth in the face of overwhelming odds, “The Age of Misinformation” marks a high point for our music.

In a recent review, Progradar said that the album is “without a doubt The Aaron Clift Experiment’s finest album yet and they will start 2023 with what is going to one of the year’s most superlative releases.”

You can buy a copy of the album on CD or digital download on our website.  We also have other cool new merchandise items like:

  • “The Age of Misinformation” t-shirts 
  • “Bet on Zero” playing cards 
  • Limited edition “Bet on Zero” poster autographed by artist Fumihito Sugawara 
  • A price-saving bundle with all the items listed above

Hey, ACE fans. Aaron here. Happy 2023! It’s been my annual tradition every year to look back at the year we just finished and talk about the highlights, but I want to change that up a bit. You already know the big event of 2022 – ACE recorded our 4th album, “The Age of Misinformation,” and will be releasing it for you this Friday, January 6! For this year’s annual look back, I want to instead give a shout out to the people who helped make our new album the best ACE release to date:

Of course, I couldn’t have done anything without my amazing bandmates: Anthony Basini, Clif Warren, and Pablo Ranlett-López. Thank you all for your excellent performances on the album and persevering through several false starts courtesy of the pandemic. Working with all of you has been one of the best professional experiences of my life!

Happy 2023 from ACE

Likewise, the guest musicians on the album all helped elevate the sound of The Aaron Clift Experiment. Thank you Big Wy’s Brass Band for the amazing performance on “Bet on Zero”: Ethan Brown, Austin Johanning, Heather Johanning, Justin Dunlap, William Wright, Marcus Cardwell, and Colin Houlihan. Thank you also to the very talented string quartet members who performed on “The Color of Flight” and “Málaga”: Zach Matteson, Charles Anderson, Jason Elinoff, and Ellie Prager.

The Band

Last, but certainly not least, thank all of you, the fans, for supporting us through this album cycle. Extra special thank to major album patrons, Mark Boyden, Louis DeCuir, Daniel James, Iron Megan, Jeff Grundmann, and Joe Strouse. I know that it took a little bit longer this time around to release our next album, but the wait is worth it, and none of us in The Aaron Clift Experiment could have done this without our awesome fans!

Happy new year, and get ready for new music this week!
