On June 10, 2014, CLUTCH will release a triple deluxe version of their acclaimed EARTH ROCKER album via Weathermaker Music. Released in 2013, EARTH ROCKER was tagged by Rolling Stone on the “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) on DVD “Live In Denver” recorded with seven cameras in 1080i on Nov. 14 at the sold-out Ogden Theatre show in Denver, two videos shot, directed and edited by actress Aisha Tyler: “Gone Cold” (unreleased) and “Crucial Velocity.” CLICK HERE to pre-order EARTH ROCKER.

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. Read the critical soundbites so far for EARTH ROCKER here.

About CLUTCH: CLUTCH--Neil Fallon (Vocals/Guitar/Keyboards/Harmonica), Tim Sult (Guitar), Dan Maines (Bass) and Jean-Paul Gaster (Drums/Percussion)-- have been pushing the boundaries of heavy rock including hard rock, blues rock, southern stoner rock and alternative/funk metal since their early beginnings as a DC hardcore punk group in 1990. The band quickly became known for their relentless touring schedule and song subjects ranging from John Wilkes Booth to trucks and beer. Tim Sult's mastery of the wah pedal soon became CLUTCH’s centerpiece during their live shows. Tracks such as “The House that Peterbilt,” “Rock and Roll Outlaw,” “Texan Book of the Dead,” “Bertha's Big Back Yard” and “Raised by Horses” continue to be fan favorites. With ten studio albums under their belt as well as rarities and live albums, CLUTCH now have their own record label titled Weathermaker Music. Albums include: 12" single Passive Restraints (Earache), their debut LP, Transnational Speedway League (1993, EastWest), Clutch (1995, EastWest), The Elephant Riders (1998, Columbia), JamRoom (1999, Columbia), Pure Rock Fury (2001, Atlantic) spawned the hit single "Careful with that Mic,” follow-up tracks "Immortal" and "Open Up the Border," were also well-received by American rock stations. In 2003, they issued Live at the Googolplex (2003, Megaforce) and the rarities record Slow Hole to China (2003, Megaforce). Blast Tyrant (2004, DRT Records) featured the hit single "The Mob Goes Wild" its accompanying video was directed by Bam Margera and featured Margera's Viva La Bam co-stars; Ryan Dunn, Brandon DiCamillo, and Don Vito. Watch it here. Pitchfork & Lost Needles (2005, Megaforce Records) combined Clutch's 1990 Pitchfork 7” release with previously unreleased demos and early tracks. In 2005, organist Mick Schauer joined the band and they released Robot Hive/Exodus (2005, DRT Entertainment) and From Beale Street to Oblivion (2007, DRT Entertainment). From Beale Street to Oblivion was produced by Joe Barresi (Kyuss/Melvins/Queens of the Stone Age/Tool). In 2009, CLUTCH released Strange Cousins from the West, they followed with a reissue of their 2004 album Blast Tyrant also on Weathermaker Music in 2011. The new edition debuted #26 on the Billboard Hard Rock Top 100 and contained a bonus album known as Basket of Eggs with unreleased songs as well as acoustic versions of previous hits. CLUTCH released their tenth and latest studio album Earth Rocker March 16, 2013 on Weathermaker Music. The album entered the Billboard Top 200 chart at #15 giving the band their highest chart position to date. Earth Rocker reached #1 on the Rock Chart and #4 on iTunes' overall Top 100 album chart.
