CLUTCH, the acclaimed Maryland-based rock group, have announced they’ll launch a fall U.S. tour kicking off September 5th in Providence, RI. See full tour itinerary below.
On June 24, 2014, CLUTCH—NEIL FALLON (vocals, rhythm guitar), TIM SULT (lead guitar), DAN MAINES (bass,) JEAN-PAUL GASTER (drums and percussion)–will release a triple deluxe version of their acclaimed EARTH ROCKER album via Weathermaker Music. EARTH ROCKER was tagged by Rolling Stone on their “Top 20 Metal Albums” list and hailed by the magazine for its fusion of “seething admixtures of jam-band chops, careening blues-punk riffs” (December 2013). The EARTH ROCKER triple deluxe album package will include: 1) the full record and brand new songs “Night Hag” and “Scavengers”; 2) “Earth Rocker Live,” a CD audio version of the album performed live; and 3) the DVD “Live In Denver” recorded with seven cameras in 1080i at a sold-out Denver show with audio remixing by Paul Logus and editing by Dave Brodsky; and two videos shot, directed and edited by actress Aisha Tyler: “Gone Cold” (unreleased) and “Crucial Velocity.” To pre-order the EARTH ROCKER triple deluxe, visit: www.clutchmerch.com.
Produced, engineered and mixed by Machine (King Crimson, Lamb Of God), EARTH ROCKER’s triple deluxe cover artwork was created by long time CLUTCH art director Nick Lakiotis (see below). EARTH ROCKER continues to garner the group some of the best reviews of their career so far.

Robbins (The Sword, Coliseum) to record the new song “Run, John Barleycorn, Run” as a special split 7” single with labelmates Lionize in honor of Record Store Day, available now: www.clutchmerch.com.
