CLUTCH, the acclaimed Maryland-based rock group, have teamed with producer J.

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 Receives Global Accolades for Earth Rocker

12/11/2013
#1 Album Of The Year 2013 In Metal Hammer UK

#2 Album in Classic Rock UK


Clutch_Earthrocker_cover (1)

2013 has been quite a year for Maryland Rockers CLUTCH. In March they released Earth Rocker, their 10th studio album. Earth Rocker was recorded, mixed and produced by Machine (King Crimson, Lamb of God) at The Machine Shop in Belleville, New Jersey. Earth Rocker garnered the band their highest Billboard Chart Number to date and was met with rave reviews and incredible fan reaction worldwide. As the year comes to a close, publications release their annual lists of the best albums, and it should be no surprise that CLUTCH’s Earth Rocker is featured prominently in many of them, both Nationally and Internationally.

Metal Hammer UK (one of the premier international metal publications) has named Earth Rocker its #1 Album of 2013. In Classic Rock Magazine’s (UK) poll, Earth Rocker comes in at #2 Album of 2013 only behind the legendary Black Sabbath. Spain’s Rock Zone Magazine named CLUTCH their “Band of the Year”. Sweden’s Close Up Magazine ranked Earth Rocker at #13 in their best albums of 2013 list. Earth Rocker placed highly in the top metal and rock album lists in many other publications and websites including The Village Voice, New Noise Magazine, Metal Sucks, Loudwire, Pop Matters and Noisecreep to name a few.

“We are really happy to hear that Earth Rocker has made so many best of 2013 lists. Our shows this past year have been among the biggest and best of our history. The overwhelming response from our fans both old and new has meant the most to us. We look forward to seeing you all again in 2014!” says singer Neil Fallon.

In December, between Christmas and New Years, CLUTCH will be back on the road for their traditional holiday shows. Support on the holiday shows will come from Into Another, The Mike Dillon Band and Lionize. Touring will continue in January with dates set from the 2nd Flint, MI. All dates and links to purchase tickets can be found below. The Sword and Crobot will provide support on these dates.

February 2014 will see CLUTCH head down under to Australia as they take part in the 2014 Soundwave Festival. In addition to the Soundwave dates, CLUTCH will be playing a handful of headlining Australian shows. These shows are set for February 20th in Brisbane at The Zoo and February 27th in Sydney at The Metro, February in Melbourne at Prince Bandroom. Tickets for the headline dates are selling fast and the shows are anticipated to sell out! Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance for these shows to not miss out! A poster for the Australian tour can be viewed HERE.

CLUTCH is currently booking a full UK tour that will start April 22nd and run through May 9th in Ireland. Confirmed dates, support and tickets links will be posted shortly at http://www.pro-rock.com.

CLUTCH’s Earth Rocker Live is now available in stores and online at the CLUTCH Merch Store. This special and limited collectors’ item is a double vinyl picture disc set. The first LP is the studio version of Earth Rocker. The second LP consists of live versions of the same tracks in the same sequence as the original. This is not a live recording of one show. The individual tracks of the live version were recorded at different shows throughout the band’s May 2013 US tour: Houston and San Antonio (TX), Lincoln (NE), Indianapolis (IN) and Fargo (ND).

DEEP SWELL's Debut Album - Pre-Orders Available Now

10/01/2013
Deep Swell - Lore of the Angler
Out October 15th via Weathermaker Music



DEEP SWELL is a true rock band rising from the banks of the Potomac River near the historic town of Shepherdstown, WV.   Now with their sound crafted, their first album Lore of the Angler is set to be released on Maryland Rockers CLUTCH's record label Weathermaker Music on October 15, 2013.  In addition to being released on CLUTCH's label, CLUTCH guitarist Tim Sult is a member of the band. With a powerful female lead vocalist and precise rhythmic force, their sound is a mix of riff-based rock, psychedelia and mysterious poetic lyrics.

Lore of the Angler is available for pre-order now from the Weathermaker Music Store.  Pre-order your copy at http://www.indiemerch.com/weathermaker

Years of friendship and mutual appreciation for each other's talents brought guitarist Tim Sult into collaboration with drummer Jesse Shultzaberger and bassist Logan Kilmer.   Sult earned his stripes as the guitarist and one of the founding members of the popular rock band, Clutch.   Shultzaberger is a versatile drummer who currently tours with the Americana band, The Woodshedders.   Kilmer, who honed his technique and methods with Noetic Pull, plays five-string with a smooth bass style to the depth of which helped spawn the band's name.    At the beginning of 2012 they met Briena Pearl and invited her to join the trio.   Pearl, a lifelong student of voice, theater, and dance, quickly proved the sheer force of her talent as a singer and songwriter, thus establishing an instant chemistry with the band and a clear direction for their emerging sound.   With this final addition in place DEEP SWELL's dynamic sound was forged.

In February 2013, the band recorded Lore of the Angler at Magpie Cage Recording Studio in Baltimore, MD.   Three months later, they were signed with Weathermaker Music, with the label overseeing distribution, touring and publicity for the album starting this fall.   The current is pulling hard and for Deep Swell the tale is just beginning. 

 
DEEP SWELL have scheduled a handful of dates supporting the release of Lore of the Angler, including a CD release party set of October 19th Shepherdstown, WV at Opera House Live.  Following that show the band will out through October 23rd with Lionize providing support.  A complete list of dates is below.

CLUTCH Postpones September Tour Dates

09/13/2013
Maryland rockers CLUTCH have been forced to postpone the September tour dates of the “Earth Rocker” North American Tour. This is due to a health issue with singer Neil Fallon. Most of the shows will be rescheduled and dates are listed below. Support on the rescheduled shows will remain the same and come from The Sword and Crobot. Tickets that were already purchased for the dates in September will be honored for the rescheduled dates in January. Unfortunately one of the shows could not be rescheduled and has been cancelled. This is show is Vienna, WV on 9/21. The show scheduled for Long Island, NY on 9/27 will be rescheduled for a later date, please hold on to your tickets. Refunds for the West Virginia are available at point of purchase. The band will still be playing “The Shindig” festival on September 14on as scheduled and planned. The Hampton Beach, NH date originally in September is now scheduled for October 25.  Unfortunately The Sword and Crobot will not be appearing on this new date in Hampton Beach, NH.  News about support will be released in the coming weeks.


CLUTCH frontman Neil Fallon gave an update on his condition:

“Dear friends, this week I've learned that a childhood injury to the neck, a genetic predisposition for spinal disease, and 20 some years of head banging will exact a toll. I've been diagnosed with an ugly case of cervical spinal stenosis and two herniated discs.

In some instances these conditions can be treated non-surgically. This is not the case for me. I have been advised by several neurosurgeons that my spinal cord has already been damaged and that I risk further damage were I not to address the situation. For this reason, I've decided to take care of this ASAP. Believe me, re scheduling a tour turns my stomach, but I believe this is the wisest choice given the prognosis.

On Tuesday I will undergo surgery. The procedure will fuse three vertebrae together with a small titanium plate. I have faith that this surgery will go as well as it can, and that I will be back in the saddle for our October-November tour. On behalf of my spine, deepest apologies to those who had been looking forward to seeing CLUTCH over the next two weeks. We'll make it up to you.”

Health and Happiness,

Neil

Earth Rocker nominated as Best New Album Classic Rock Roll of Honour

08/09/2013
ORANGE AMPLIFICATION PRESENTS

THE CLASSIC ROCK

ROLL OF HONOUR 2013

IN ASSOCIATION WITH CURRENCIES.CO.UK

* BLACK SABBATH TO RECEIVE LIVING LEGEND AWARD *
* THE DARKNESS TO PERFORM AT THE AWARDS *
* SHORTLIST NOMINATIONS ANNOUNCED – VOTING OPEN NOW *

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14

ROUNDHOUSE, CAMDEN, LONDON

Orange Amplification Presents The Classic Rock Roll Of Honour in association with currencies.co.uk enters its ninth year and is proud to announce the first of this year’s winners: Black Sabbath as Living Legends. The biggest award of the night will be presented to the Godfathers of Heavy Metal at London’s Roundhouse on Tuesday, November 14.

Also, this year’s proceedings will be brought to a close by Suffolk’s finest glam-rockers, The Darkness. Justin and co. will wrap up the evening with their high-octane theatrical rock in front of an audience of the great and good of the music world.

Classic Rock has also announced its shortlist for the coveted reader-voted categories for this year’s Roll Of Honour, and fans can cast their all-important vote now at www.classicrockmagazine.com/awards



Speaking in his own inimitable way about the Living Legend award, Sabbath’s Ozzy Osbourne says: “It’s good to be a living legend. It’s better than being a dead one.” Following their triumphant return to the top of the album charts with their first release with Ozzy in three-and-a-half decades, the band are being hailed by critics and fans alike. The CRROH Living Legend Award will be the icing on the cake of the Brummies’ all-conquering return. Joining Ozzy to collect the award will be fellow band members Geezer Butler and Tony Iommi.

The Living Legend Award has become one of the most highly coveted awards in the music industry. It is only ever awarded to those artists who have truly cemented their place in the rock pantheon – with past winners including ZZ Top, Jeff Beck, Alice Cooper, Jimmy Page, Lemmy and Iggy Pop. This year Ozzy Osbourne picks up his second title – he won as a solo artist in 2008 – alongside his bandmates.

Rock has hit the headlines even more this year with groundbreaking gigs and tours including the Rolling Stones returning to Hyde Park and headlining Glastonbury, Bon Jovi helping out the Spanish and European economies with cheap tickets on sale, Status Quo hitting the silver screen, Pink Floyd’s one million plays on Spotify and of course the unexpected return of David Bowie. This year’s Roll Of Honour will doubtless cause a few more headlines!

MD of Team Rock Chris Ingham says: "It's been another amazing year for high-voltage rock'n'roll and Classic Rock is honoured to be hosting our annual awards show at the Roundhouse again. We're delighted to welcome Black Sabbath to collect our Living Legend Award. It's wholly deserved as not only do they have a career to celebrate, but Ozzy, Geezer and Tony blasted back with a brilliant new album in 2013 that reminded us all how it should be done. Rest assured, the Roll Of Honour will be another great night of rock'n'roll celebration and moving speeches, and will close with a live set from The Darkness that will no doubt need to be seen to be believed!"

Any fan's dream is to know what it's like to be on the road with a Rock and Roll band, but you may be surprised to see what it's really like - long periods of boredom, broken up by brief periods of intense activity and most of all hard work. CLUTCH has been posting a tour diary blog throughout their European tour on how it really is. The posts can be read on the band's Facebook Page andhttp://www.pro-rock.com.

Any fan's dream is to know what it's like to be on the road with a Rock and Roll band, but you may be surprised to see what it's really like - long periods of boredom, broken up by brief periods of intense activity and most of all hard work.  The working man's Rock and Roll Band

We executed on our worldwide plan by integrating touring, promotion, retail and digital marketing as well as Specialty/Metal and Active Rock radio campaigns in a perfect sequence.

Earth Rocker - March, 2013

10/16/2012
CLUTCH Announce Earth Rocker as New Album Title


Earth Rocker World Tour to Kick off in January 2013 
Maryland rockers CLUTCH have announced Earth Rocker as the title of their new studio album.  Earth Rocker is scheduled for a worldwide release in March of 2013 on CLUTCH's label Weathermaker Music.  

In conjunction with the album's release CLUTCH will embark on the Earth Rocker world tour beginning in The United Kingdom in January of 2013.  In addition to the tour dates, the band will be available for press opportunities on select dates. A complete list of dates can be found below.  A full United States and Canadian headline tour will follow and is slated to run from March 8th through April 20th.

The band has completed tracking Earth Rocker with Machine handling all production duties.  Machine is currently in the mixing process on the album.  Fans can keep up on the progress of Earth Rocker by visiting the new website www.earthrocker.com. The website will be a hub dedicated to all things Earth Rocker.  Fans can expect to see daily updates including photos, videos from the studio, song title announcements and samples of new songs.  In addition to the new website CLUTCH has joined the world of twitter.  Follow CLUTCH on Twitter @ClutchOfficial.  

Frontman Neil Fallon commented on the the recording process for Earth Rocker and how it differs from other CLUTCH albums:

"Last minute overdubs are fun.  Harmonicas, tambourines (yes, we use those), claps, the odd backing vocal.  Recording can be monotonous, so those unintended moments can be a lot of fun. It's kind of like kindergarten music class, but with beer.   And sometimes the spontaneity of a last ditch idea breathes a lot of life back into a song that we've been beating up for weeks on end. A looming deadline can be a great muse!"

He continues, "It has a lot in common with Blast Tyrant in that Machine's production techniques are really unique.  It differs from Blast Tyrant and a lot of other CLUTCH records in that, overall, the songs are faster and concise."  

When asked about how this record how it differs from other CLUTCH releases guitarist Tim Sult added, "As far as the composition of the songs go, this is the heaviest and fastest CLUTCH album to date. "

CLUTCH will also take to the road starting on Halloween for a quick run of dates including two stops in Flint, MI and two stops in Detroit, MI.  MonstrO will open these shows with Lionize providing direct support.  .

In what has become an annual tradition, CLUTCH will play a string of Holiday tour dates this December.  The dates kick off December 26th in Washington, DC and conclude with a special New Year's Eve performance in Worcester, MA at The Palladium.  Support on these shows will come from Mondo Generator, Saviours and Wino.  A complete list of all dates is below.

THE COMPANY BAND Pros & Cons EP Enters Billboard Charts!

08/09/2012

(Photo by: JJ Koczan)

Available Now via Weathermaker Music
THE COMPANY BAND's new EP Pros & Cons charted this week on three of Billboard's Charts.  Pros & Cons came in at #25 on the Heatseeker Chart, #52 on the Hard Rock Chart and #116 on the Independent Chart.

In addition to cracking the Billboard Charts, THE COMPANY BAND is continuing to explode on the radio scene.  The album has reached #14 on the CMJ Loud Rock Chart, which is unheard of for an EP.  The EP is also receiving airplay on many commercial specialty stations as well.

Both the CD and vinyl editions of the Pros & Cons EP are available for pre-order at THE COMPANY BAND's Official Store HERE.  The collector's edition vinyl is limited to 1,000 individually numbered pieces with one side featuring etched artwork.  Order your copy now as these are sure to sell out fast.

Since THE COMPANY BAND first got together in 2006, the group has solely existed through semi-annual corporate retreats. These meetings developed into an organization of odd fellows featuring vocalist Neil Fallon from Clutch, drummer Jess Margera from CKY, guitarist / vocalist Jim Rota from Fireball Ministry, bassist Brad Davis from Fu Manchu and guitarist Dave Bone. Since the beginning, the group has rarely surfaced to show their hand. In 2007 it was the Sign Here, Here and Here EP. In 2009 it was The Company Band album along with the It's A Confusing World / Not Fragile single. And after a recent retreat at a beach house in Venice, the group has released a new five song EP entitled Pros & Cons.  

An EPK which gives fans further insight into the band and the Pros & Cons EP, can be viewed HERE.

Not many have known the origins of THE COMPANY BAND until Jess Margera finally opened
up about its inception. "I crossed paths with Jim on tour and knew we should open up shop immediately.
Do some instrumentals that could be valuable in the placement market. Then he suggested getting Bone
involved. It's then when we laid down our original presentation that we took to Neil. We hoped he could be
a guest speaker on one of the tracks but it fortunately turned out that he wanted a permanent seat. Brad
Davis came seamlessly into the fold later as he was already a compatriot with several of the members,
musically and socially."

Legendary NYHC Band THE MOB 7" Single "Back to Queens"

07/17/2012

Available Today on Weathermaker Music

New Video Premiering Exclusively on Noisecreep Today

Sometime during 1980 searching for a harder/faster outlet than the current NYC punk rock trend, three
teenagers from Jackson Heights, Queens: Jack Flanagan, Jose Gonzalez and Ralph Gebbia formulated
THE MOB.  Once the concept was established they added high-school bud Jamie Shanahan on drums,
to round out the 4 piece assault.  The early MOB sound was heavily influenced by what was going on in
L.A. and D.C.  With NY not having a true representative taking up this new sound and culture THE MOB
chose to carry the flag.  THE MOB were not alone in this endeavor and these ideas, as others were feeling
the same excitement and picked up guitars, mics and sticks in pursuing these same ideas: which turned into
the first wave of the NYHC scene.

Fast forward to 2012 and THE MOB is back in business.  This year's Black N' Blue Bowl marked THE
MOB
's return to the stage and to the forefront of the NYHC Scene after a ten year absence.  Along with
performing at the Black N' Blue Bowl this year, THE MOB has recorded their newest offering "Back to
Queens" which will be released in true "MobStyle" as a 7" vinyl including the track "That's It".   This
release is limited to 1000 individually hand numbered copies which were signed by all four members of the
band and then shrink-wrapped making this a true collector's item.  The EP is available now on Amazon.

There is also a digital version of the single available on iTunes and Amazon which includes a bonus offering
of "Zoo Crew".  "Zoo crew" was one of the first songs ever written by the mob back in 1980, but never
released until now.

THE MOB recently completed work on a video for "Back To Queens".  The video was directed by Drew
Stone, who is known for his work documenting the Boston Hardcore Scene, particularly in his film
"xxx All Ages xxx".  Today the video is receiving it's exclusive premiere courtesy of Noisecreep.  Check it
out HERE.

Singer Ralph Gebbia spoke about THE MOB's new single:

"I am stoked about the new release and my hope is that old heads enjoy what we're doing now and new
MOB Style Moshers join in on the fun!"

"Back To Queens" is the first in a series of four 7" singles that will be released by THE MOB on
Weathermaker Music. The artwork for the singles was created by famed New York tattoo artist Mr. Den. 
While each single has its own distinct artwork, once all four are released each piece takes on a new meaning
as one part of a complete piece of art.

THE COMPANY BAND Release Video EPK

07/03/2012
The Company Band EPK Summer 2012
The Company Band EPK Summer 2012
Pros & Cons EP Available July 31st via Weathermaker Music
Since THE COMPANY BAND first got together in 2006, the group has solely existed through semi-annual corporate retreats. These meetings developed into an organization of odd fellows featuring vocalist Neil Fallon from Clutch, drummer Jess Margera from CKY, guitarist / vocalist Jim Rota from Fireball Ministry, bassist Brad Davis from Fu Manchu and guitarist Dave Bone. Since the beginning, the group has rarely surfaced to show their hand. In 2007 it was the Sign Here, Here and Here EP. In 2009 it was The Company Band album along with the It's A Confusing World / Not Fragile single. And after a recent retreat at a beach house in Venice, the group have a new five song EP ready entitled Pros & ConsPros & Cons will be released in July 31st via Weathermaker Music.

Today THE COMPANY BAND has released a video EPK, giving fans further insight into the band and the upcoming Pros & Cons EP.  Check it out HERE and delve deeper into who THE COMPANY BAND are and what they stand for.

The first single from the EP entitled "House of Capricorn" received its exclusive premiere via Antiquiet.com.  Check out the song and read a little insight on the track from frontman Neil Fallon HERE.

Not many have known the origins of THE COMPANY BAND until Jess Margera finally opened up about its inception. "I crossed paths with Jim on tour and knew we should open up shop immediately. Do some instrumentals that could be valuable in the placement market. Then he suggested getting Bone involved. It's then when we laid down our original presentation that we took to Neil. We hoped he could be a guest speaker on one of the tracks but it fortunately turned out that he wanted a permanent seat. Brad Davis came seamlessly into the fold later as he was already a compatriot with several of the members, musically and socially."

With everyone's bands creating such a difficult schedule, how do they make it all happen? "I don't want to say we pay great attention to astrology, but..." said Neil Fallon trailing off.  "On this one, I chose the spot for the retreat in Venice. A great location will not only bring the people out, but it will also bring the best out of the people." And when THE COMPANY BAND do get together, it's an occasion not to be missed. The group can be seen performing limited live demonstrations toward the end of July.  Dates are listed below.

Pros & Cons EP Tracklisting:
1)    House of Capricorn
2)    Black Light Fever
3)    Kill Screen
4)    Loc Nar

THE COMPANY BAND to Release Pros & Cons EP

06/07/2012

July 31st on Weathermaker Music

Artwork and Tracklisting Revealed  

Since THE COMPANY BAND first got together in 2006, the group has solely existed through semi-annual corporate retreats. These meetings developed into an organization of odd fellows featuring vocalist Neil Fallon from Clutch, drummer Jess Margera from CKY, guitarist / vocalist Jim Rota from Fireball Ministry, bassist Brad Davis from Fu Manchu and guitarist Dave Bone. Since the beginning, the group has rarely surfaced to show their hand. In 2007 it was the Sign Here, Here and Here EP. In 2009 it was The Company Band album along with the It's A Confusing World / Not Fragile single. And after a recent retreat at a beach house in Venice, the group have a new five song EP ready entitled Pros & Cons.

 

"The music on this record is our most platinum influenced. Early 80's hard rock and classic metal. Bands like AC/DC, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and some Aerosmith. But it's become a melting pot. This is the stuff where we really found our sound," says Dave Bone. Jim Rota goes on to describe: "It's like that point in life when you finally say; I'm trading in the Kawasaki and going full Harley. We went full Harley on this one." Brad Davis points out that maximum sound quality was of utmost importance: "We did a lot of the EP live in the studio. Working with producer Dr. Andrew Alekel at Grandmaster Recorders is always a recipe for success. There's no doubt, he's an important asset to our team." The recording for Neil's vocals was done with J. Robbins at The Magpie Cage in Baltimore. "In the modern age, remote operations are crucial to productivity," Neil said of the coast to coast recording. Guitar overdubs and background vocals were also done at Jim's own Sword and Shield studio. "Having the ability to examine the product under your own microscope is indispensable," Jim commented.

 

Not many have known the origins of THE COMPANY BAND until Jess Margera finally opened up about its inception. "I crossed paths with Jim on tour and knew we should open up shop immediately. Do some instrumentals that could be valuable in the placement market. Then he suggested getting Bone involved. It's then when we laid down our original presentation that we took to Neil. We hoped he could be a guest speaker on one of the tracks but it fortunately turned out that he wanted a permanent seat.

CLUTCH and HELLYEAH Unite For North American Co-Headlining Tour

02/16/2012



Tour Starts April 10th

Maryland rockers CLUTCH are teaming up with HELLYEAH for a North American Co-Headlining Tour this Spring. Both bands will play full headlining sets. The tour kicks off April 13th in Providence, RI and runs through May 11th in Joliet, IL. Throughout the tour there will also be dates that feature Clutch only and Hellyeah only as well as radio festivals and shows. A list of complete dates can be found below.

Hard rock supergroup HELLYEAH is touring in support of their new album Band of Brothers which is scheduled for a June 5th release in North America. The album, the band's first effort for their new label home, Eleven Seven Music, was recorded in Dallas at drummer Vinnie Paul's home studio, VP's Upstairs Studio, and was produced by the band and Jeremy Parker (Godsmack, Evanessence), who also served as engineer.

Having produced track after track of heavy-hitting, in-your-face, feel good rock and roll on their previous two albums (2010's STAMPEDE and 2007's self-titled debut), Band of Brothers sees HELLYEAH taking a slightly different musical direction. Drawing on their former bands' collective metal roots for inspiration, the influences and style of Mudvayne, Pantera, Damageplan and Nothingface are immediately recognizable. More information regarding Hellyeah's highly anticipated new album can be found HERE.

CLUTCH is hitting the road in support of their double vinyl edition of Blast Tyrant which is being released February 28th via Weathermaker Music. This 180+ gram expanded vinyl contains 16 songs and includes six mini-posters taken straight from Blast Tyrant's "Atlas of the Invisible World". Each illustrated poster is sized (8.5" x 11") and depicts one of the various characters featured within the Blast Tyrant storyline. Prior to February 28th, the double vinyl edition of Blast Tyrant is exclusively available via www.Clutchmerch.com. CLUTCH will also be releasing a picture disc single of the new track "Pigtown Blues" on April 24th. This is the first new studio material from CLUTCH since 2009's Strange Cousins From the West.

CLUTCH will also be returning to Europe this festival season. The band has been confirmed for the Sonisphere Festival in Madrid Spain on May 26th and the Peace and Love Festival in Borlänge, Sweden on June 29th. Additional festival appearances are expected to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

In other CLUTCH news, the band's music will be featured in the soon to be released film "The Baytown Disco" starring Andre Braugher, Billy Bob Thornton, and Eva Longoria. A six minute preview of the film can, featuring CLUTCH music can be viewed HERE. And for all you hockey fans, CLUTCH's "Electric Worry" is still the goal music for the Vancouver Canucks.

Electric Worry in "Race Across the Sky" Trailer

10/13/2010
http://www.raceacrossthesky.com/

"In 2009, "Race Across the Sky" captured the imagination of countless mountain bike enthusiasts when Lance Armstrong not only won the Leadville Trail 100 Mountain Bike Race, but set a new course record that seemed unattainable. This year, "Race Across the Sky 2010" delves into the resulting race entry boom, including record numbers of citizen riders, all with their own personal reasons for challenging themselves to this epic test
of will, strength and endurance. Joined by the toughest elite field this high-altitude century race has ever seen, these riders are tested by one of the most brutal courses known to the sport. From the center of the little mining town of Leadville, Colorado, to the 12,570-foot top of Columbine Mine, get ready to be inspired all over again."

Tour Update & Robot Hive Reissue

10/04/2010

North American Tour w/ Black Label Society and Children of Bodom


Robot Hive / Exodus Reissue In Stores Next Week / New Weathermaker Website Launch October 1st!

 

Maryland hard rock band Clutch is coming up on their 20th year, maintaining a consistent following with constant touring, unique wit, and fearless tendency to mix metal with genres like blues and funk. - Billboard

 

With over a dozen recordings, Clutch has routinely pushed itself creatively for each album. The progress has been subtle enough that the band has never been accused of abandoning its core musical ideals, yet noticeable enough to create an expectation for new sets of ideas with each new release. - Relix

 

Veteran rock band CLUTCH kicked off their eight week North American tour with Zakk Wylde's Black Label Society last night in Vancouver, BC. The tour, which also features Children of Bodom will run through November 20th, and will also feature intermittant Clutch headline shows in particular cities across the USA in October and November.

 

The Maryland based quartet will release "Robot Hive/Exodus," the second of three planned expanded re-issues, on September 28th in the form of a CD/DVD dual disc set. Originally released 5 years ago, Robot Hive enjoyed six-figure sales primarily due to the success of the multi-dimensional singles "Burning Beard," "100001110101" and "Mice & Gods." The updated 23 song set features a bonus 9 song DVD, of which the first 8 tracks were filmed on location at the 2005 Sounds of the Underground festival. The material is a blend of Robot Hive era songs and older Clutch classics like "Impetus" and "The Mob Goes Wild." The DVD's final track is the Jeremy Hunt produced video clip for "Burning Beard," which ended 2005 as one of the Top 5 most played Hard Rock videos on MTV's Headbanger's Ball.

 

It should be noted that the digital version of the "Robot Hive/Exodus" reissue will contain the audio version of that same 2005 Sounds of the Underground performance. This expanded release is the second of its kind for Clutch, who also produced a dual disc version of "From Beale Street to Oblivion" on their Weathermaker Music label in July, and will do the same for 2004's "Blast Tyrant" in the upcoming months. Plans for vinyl versions of these re-issues will be unveiled by Weathermaker at the end of the year.

 

In other Clutch related news, Weathermaker Music will launch their brand new interactive website (WeathermakerMusic.com) on October 1st with a special fan poll which will result in an epic, one of a kind podcast. Exact details will be announced during the website's launch, but fans should look forward to first class prize giveaways such as concert tickets, Weathermaker swag and Clutch vinyl.

"Robot Hive / Exodus" Expanded Reissue + DVD

08/18/2010
CLUTCH Announce Details of "Robot Hive / Exodus" Expanded Reissue + DVD
Add Headlining Appearances to US Tour w/ Black Label Society and Children of Bodom!




Maryland hard rock band Clutch is coming up on their 20th year, maintaining a consistent following with constant touring, unique wit, and fearless tendency to mix metal with genres like blues and funk. - Billboard

With over a dozen recordings, Clutch has routinely pushed itself creatively for each album. The progress has been subtle enough that the band has never been accused of abandoning its core musical ideals, yet noticeable enough to create an expectation for new sets of ideas with each new release. - Relix

Clutch have announced the track listing for the expanded-dual disc edition re-issue of "Robot Hive/Exodus" which will be released worldwide on September 28th through Weathermaker Music. Currently out of print, "Robot Hive/Exodus" was at one point the band's largest selling title of the decade due to the strength of its three extremely powerful yet diverse singles, "Burning Beard," "10001110101" and "Mice & Gods." In addition to upgraded artwork and new "digi" packaging, this expanded edition will feature a bonus DVD which includes a classic 33 minute outdoor performance recorded on location at the Sounds of the Underground festival in July of 2005 in Sayreville, NJ. Also included is the Jeremy Hunt directed "Burning Beard" video clip, which was the first ever Clutch single to reach the "year end" Top 10 most played on MTV's Headbanger's Ball.

In total, the "Robot Hive/Exodus" re-issue contains 23 songs and over 90 minutes of music. This is the second of three planned extended double disc re-issues, as Weathermaker has already released "From Beale Street to Oblivion" in July, and plans to issue forth the "Blast Tyrant" package in November. For the uber Clutch fan and/or retro rocker, Weathermaker will see to it that all three releases will make thier way onto limited edition vinyl.

On September 22nd, Clutch will embark on a nine week tour with Black Label Society and Children of Bodom. In addition to 40+ dates with Zakk Wylde's widely popular hard rock act, the veteran rock band from Maryland have just announced six headline concerts that will be placed within the Fall tour, giving their North American fanbase close to 50 opportunities to see the band perform a combination of classic Clutch material as well as current fan favorites like "50,000 Unstoppable Watts," "Let a Poor Man Be" and "Abraham Lincoln" from the band's latest, Top 40 soundscan charting, "Strange Cousins From the West" full-length album.

FALL NORTH AMERICAN TOUR WITH BLACK LABEL SOCIETY
Following a calendar year of worldwide headline touring behind their career best Top 35 soundscan CD Strange Cousins From the West and subsequent critically acclaimed Top 10 Dual DVD Live at the 9:30, CLUTCH announced they will share the stage with hard rock acts Black Label Society and Children of Bodom on the 37 date "Black Label Bezerkerus North American Tour" this Fall. Clutch will perform as direct support to Zakk Wylde's longtime band on almost 2 dozen of the concerts which kick off in Vancouver on September 22nd and finish up the weekend before Thanksgiving in San Francisco.  Check out the dates below for the complete list of dates.

"Clutch's recent hard-nose work ethic is unparalled by today's standard rock acts. The past 12-18 months have been the busiest time period of Clutch," stated label manager Jon Nardachone, referring to Clutch's THREE Bonnaroo sets, played within 24 hours in the smoldering 100 heat on the June 11th and 12th weekend. Nardachone adds "They feed off the energy of the greatest diehard fans in the world. We all wonder how they get up for it night after night after night, but as I witnessed 10,000+ rock & roll crazies simultaneously chanting 'Bang Bang Bang Bang! Vamanos! Vamanos!' in the middle of the Tennessee night, it all makes sense."



BEALE STREET AND OTHER DRT RE-ISSUES ARE COMING
Weathermaker has announced July 20th as the official release date for the first of three 2010 re-issues from the band's DRT years. The enhanced, expanded edition of From Beale Street to Oblivion will be a 22 song, double CD not only features multiple versions of the band's widely popular blues rock anthem "Electric Worry," but includes 5 songs recorded at the Maida Valle Sessions at the world famous BBC studios in London, and 4 songs recorded live in Australia, as well as updated and upgraded artwork and packaging. From Beale Street to Oblivion isn't the only re-issue in the works either. Weathermaker will re-issue Robot Hive/Exodus in September and Blast Tyrant in November, also as dual disc/expanded editions. Look for special vinyl versions of all the re-issues as well.

"Live at the 9:30" DVD Review

05/21/2010

Nearly 20 years of working on the gig-and-purge shift has allowed Clutch to really refine their collective vice-like grip on their material, and man, does it show on their exhilarating two-film, two-DVD set. Live at the 9:30, features the entire thrust of their 90-minute gig from Washington D.C.’s 9:30 club on December 28, 2009. Fortune Tellers Make a Killing Nowadays, another 90-minute film, follows the Maryland band from the western United States to eastern Canada, offering behind-the-scenes footage, interviews with the band, crew, management, and fans in every city along their path.

And these fans are loyal. This is a Maryland band that has slowly metamorphosized out of the dawn of the grunge and post-hardcore era, and found itself with a completely unique sound, which gathers together strands of hard rock, metal, prog, psychedelic shades and colors, and funk to create a genre onto themselves. With nary a nod to current influences, Clutch manages to sound fresh and contemporary by focusing on the almighty riff as its core foundation. The D.C. gig, which includes the band covering their entire 1995 self-titled album, sandwiched in between old and new favorites, is excellent and quite a souvenir for that longtime fan, or an opportunity for a new fan to see what it is this quartet does to keep its groove.

Band interviews feature each musician discussing how they continue to work on their craft, and hone their sound to perfection, keeping themselves open to new ideas within their two-decade adventure. Frontman/vocalist/guitarist Neil Fallon is the soul of the band, crafting ingenious reams of lyrics while roaring out vocals on stage. Bassist Dan Maines with his witty asides and textbook engine room rhythm work helps solidify the band’s sound. Lead guitarist Tim Sult, with his classic Gibson Les Paul guitar, Marshall and Orange amp setups, offers hard rock motifs and psychedelic imagery, which is also almost AC/DC meets Parliament/Floydian in its simplicity, but also damned original.

However, one thing is strikingly obvious as both films unfold in a truly memorable and exciting fashion. It’s drummer Jean-Paul Gaster’s world. We just live in it. The skinsmith comes across as an expert student of the drum kit, even practicing after gigs according to stage manager and drum tech, Chase Lapp. But the veteran drummer is also an insightful spokesman for not only his band, but rock music, in general. One can tell that the man likes to have his fun, but he also has that timeless laser-like focus on his work, which is quite compelling to watch. Indeed, after watching and listening to numerous drummers over the years, one is hard-pressed to find a more inventive, powerful, and talented drummer, outside the likes of Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham.

Both DVDs are superb audio and visual documents, which help underline the fact that many have followed in the wake of their 1991 debut—indeed, the second DVD includes 1991 and 1992 archival footage—playing variations of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, or, even earlier, Black Sabbath and Blue Cheer, but few bands have been as consistently true to its essence with the dynamic vigor of a medieval craftsman’s perfectionism as Clutch.

UPDATES

04/17/2010
2010 will prove to be the busiest calendar year for Clutch. To start off the inaugural Newsletter, let's begin with a live DVD announcement!

CLUTCH LIVE AT THE 9:30 DVD IN MAY
On May11th Clutch will issue a brand new epic DVD set called Live at the 9:30. The 200 minute double disc concert will be sold at the fan friendly price of $19.98. Both discs were directed and produced by Agent Ogden, who first worked with the band on 2007's Full Fathom Five, Video Field Recordings.

DISC 1 FEATURES
The 90 minute full concert filmed last December at Washington DC's 9:30 Club on seven hi-definition cameras. In addition to favorites from Strange Cousins From The West, like "50,000 Unstoppable Watts," and "Let A Poor Man Be," the DVD will also include an electrifying version of the 1995 self-titled album in it's entirety. 

Also, an audio version of the 19 song concert will be available exclusively on iTunes beginning May 11th.


Tracklisting
50,000 Unstoppable Watts
Struck Down
Minotaur
Let A Poor Man Be
Big News 1
Big News 2
Rock & Roll Outlaw
Texan Book of The Dead
Escape From The Prison Planet

Animal Farm

Tim Sult Vs. The Greys
Regulator
Gravel Road


DISC 2 FEATURES
A 110 minute "road film" called Fortune Tellers Make a Killing Nowadays, which takes a behind-the-scenes look at Clutch during their 2009 tour. Disc 2 also includes rare band interviews as well as vintage never before seen footage documenting much of Clutch's history from 1991 to the present. 


"LET A POOR MAN BE" SINGLE
In support of the summer tour and the forthcoming Live at the 9:30 DVD, as well as the current Strange Cousins From the West CD, Weathermaker Music will release the new single "Let a Poor Man Be" on May 3rd, with an accompanying video clip and a rare promo only EP featuring unreleased material.


CLUTCH / THE BAKERTON GROUP AT BONNAROO
On June 4th Clutch will kick off another leg of their 2010 worldwide headlining tour. The early summer portion takes the band through the USA, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Greece, Italy and the UK. The band's instrumental jazz rock alter ego, The Bakerton Group will appear as one of the opening acts in North America. Both The Bakerton Group and Clutch will appear on the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival on June 11th and 12th respectively.


CLUTCH CD AND VINYL RE-ISSUES COMING
As if that's not enough, Clutch and Weathermaker Music are currently preparing expanded CD and vinyl re-issues of catalog pieces From Beale Street to Oblivion, Robot Hive/Exodus and Blast Tyrant. These three projects will be available digitally and physically at retail and the band's websites on the CD/DVD format on June 22nd, August 17th and October 12th respectively. Double vinyl versions of all three re-issues will be available on November 23rd. Track listings are not yet available, but Weathermaker label manager Jon Nardachone hints at some very exciting details.

"The bonus content of the three re-issues will be entirely different. We're still sifting through unreleased Clutch originals, cover songs, live audio, live video, alternate takes, etc, One thing we know for sure is that each re-issue will have updated and upgraded artwork/packaging as well as additional music from the exact timeframe each CD was first released. This is not about tacking on a couple of unfinished demos to the end of each CD. We're producing these with the knowledge that Clutch fans expect something fresh, yet distinguishably representative of that moment in time. The diehard fan will appreciate these projects in a big way."

On December 15, CLUTCH will issue a double vinyl package of their latest studio effort, "Strange Cousins From the West", through the band's self-owned label Weathermaker Music.

The first track is the recently recorded "Metroliner Special" and the second is an extended version of the band's latest single and video, "50,000 Unstoppable Watts".

The first 4,000 pieces of "Strange Cousins" vinyl will include a coupon for a free digital download of all 12 songs through the band's web site, www.pro-rock.com.

Also this fall, Weathermaker will make available for digital purchase the former DRT Entertainment catalog, which includes "Blast Tyrant" (2004), "Robot Hive/Exodus" (2005) and "From Beale Street to Oblivion" (2007). Weathermaker plans to reissue all three of these in 2010 with a heavy dose of bonus material. Double vinyl packages are in the works for these as well.

"Robot Hive/Exodus" was made available digitally on November 30 and will be followed by "Blast Tyrant" on December 18. Due to the high amount of digital demand for the band's 2007 single "Electric Worry", Weathermaker has already issued "From Beale Street to Oblivion" on November 7 to coincide with the song's inclusion in the popular video game "Left 4 Dead 2" and its television commercial.

Soundwave 2010....has arrived!

http://www.soundwavefestival.com/

One of the 7 wonders of the ancient world, the pyramids have baffled archaeologists as to how those huge chunks of rock were assembled together some 2500 years ago.

Following its most successful year, we are hoping that in years from now, folks will look at the 2010 Soundwave line-up and wonder how so much ROCK from around the world was assembled together in 5 cities across Australia.

For 2010 we are particularly proud to have enticed one of rock’s all time legendary artists, FAITH NO MORE ; and one of today’s most talented and intriguing bands, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE to top the bill. Joining them will be indie legends and festival kings JANES ADDICTION, the kings of dark punk AFI and one of the hottest bands in the world, PARAMORE.

We are also thrilled to be graced by the presence of the newly reformed and legendary SUNNY DAY REAL ESTATE and the hotly anticipated return of THE GET UP KIDS and ALEXISONFIRE.

In true SOUNDWAVE fashion there will be plenty of great new bands to discover as well old and new favourites. Without further ado, we present the line-up for SOUNDWAVE 2010.

BREAKING NEWS!

07/13/2009

Stream New Album, "Strange Cousins From The West," Out Next Tuesday on Weathermaker Music * Premiere "50,000 Unstoppable Watts" Video This Saturday on Headbangers Ball!


The Maryland based band has amassed a substantial catalog that includes nine studio albums, five live releases, and a handful of EPs. What's more, throughout the 90's, Clutch's hardcore-influenced, groove-heavy riff rock, helped define that decade's stoner sound, while in the new millennium, their persistent hunger to expand their style brought them into the realms of traditional down-home blues and far-out psychedelic jams. While Clutch's recorded sound may be most prominently colored by Sult's mammoth riffs and Fallon's gravelly, booming vocals and surreal, pseudo-social lyrical critiques, the true strength of the band is revealed at Clutch's live show. Anyone who's witnessed one knows that when all four players lock into a brutal, funky groove - to use a title from one of their own songs - the mob goes wild. - Revolver Magazine

Veteran Maryland rock quartet CLUTCH are gearing up for the release of their ninth studio album, entitled Strange Cousins From the West. Produced by Clutch and J. Robbins at Magpie Cage Studios in Baltimore, the effort is the first Clutch original to be released on the band's own Weathermaker Music, through RED Distribution. Label manager Jon Nardachone reports "Strange Cousins..." will be available both physically and digitally through retail on July 14th, and fans who purchase the new album via iTunes will receive a free bonus track! An iTunes exclusive 10 minute Clutch "up close & personal" video documentary, produced by Agent Ogden!

In celebration of the new album, Clutch and Weathermaker Music have announced they have made their new album streaming in its entirety at AOL Music for one week only!

Click to stream Clutch's new album, "Strange Cousins From The West," here!

Clutch has also announced they will be making the worldwide video premiere for the first single off the album, titled "50,000 Unstoppable Watts," this Saturday on Headbangers Ball!

Don't miss the world premiere of this badass new Clutch video for "50,000 Unstoppable Watts" airing for the first time anywhere on MTV's Headbangers Ball this Saturday at 2am EST! Produced and directed by Jeremy Hunt of Screaming Death Monkey, Hunt also directed Clutch's "Burning Beard" video.

Finally, as they prepare to bring their new album to the live setting, Clutch will kick off their massive US Summer tour with the mighty Baroness this week, and have also just announced a Fall US tour w/ Wino and Revolution Mother, bringing the band to New York City's Irving Plaza for two-nights of back to back shows, and their first dates in the city in support of the band's new album. Pre-sale tickets for Clutch Fan Club members are available now through the band's Pro-Rock.com.

NEW BAKERTON GROUP ALBUM

12/09/2008

Weathermaker Music Inks Deal w/ RED Distribution * Announces New Bakerton Group Album Out February 17th!

“Clutch have so many fans here at RED, and we couldn’t be happier they chose us to be their distribution partner... Helping the band build their new label will make 2009 an even better year at RED.” - RED Senior Vice President of Product Development Alan Becker.

“We’re so amped about our deal with RED. I’m convinced their team is as hungry as we are to take The Bakerton Group, Clutch and Weathermaker Music to the next level.” - Weathermaker Label Manager Jon Nardachone.

Weathermaker Music, the label owned by touring juggernauts Clutch, has inked a multi-year, multiple release North American deal with Sony/BMG owned RED Distribution. First on deck, slated for a February 17th release through the formidable alliance, is the new BAKERTON GROUP release entitled “El Rojo!”

Produced by Clutch and J. Robbins at Magpie Cage Studios in Baltimore, MD, “El Rojo” will be the first full tilt release from THE BAKERTON GROUP, the psychedelic instrumental jazz-laden alter ego of Clutch (all 4 original Clutch members make up The Bakerton Group). In addition, Per Wiberg from Opeth was brought in to handle all piano, synth and keyboard duties on all 10 of “El Rojo’s” tracks.

In other Clutch related news, some of the incredible footage from the band’s first ever live DVD/CD, “Full Fathom Five,” will be featured on Comcast Cable’s On Demand “Concert TV” channel starting December 15th, along with classic rock icons Led Zeppelin, Judas Priest, Black Crowes, Deep Purple, Santana, U2 & Motorhead.

* Clutch will end 2008 the same way they began it, on the road. In late December, they will headline a short run with Viking Skull and Russian Circles as support. Starting Feb 11th to March 3rd, both Clutch and The Bakerton Group will simultaneously tour the the United States, before recording the highly anticiapted follow-up to the “From Beale Street to Oblivion” CD.

1. Time Horizon
2. Chancellor
3. Peruvian Airspace
4. Bien Classico

MULTIPLE UPDATES

11/13/2008

Press release below.

Clutch & Weathermaker Team Up w/ MVD * New CD/DVD in stores Nov. 11th * Band To Appear on Hard Rock Hell Festival, Saw V Soundtrack, US Dates w/ Russian Circles and More!

For the past 8 weeks, Clutch’s first ever DVD “Full Fathom Five, Video Field Recordings,” and accompanying CD have been available at the band’s legendary live shows, through Merch.com and in about 150 select US, Canadian and UK independent retail outlets chosen by the band’s owned and self distributed Weathermaker Music label. This will increase ten-fold, as Weathermaker has teamed up with the MVD Entertainment Group to expand the reach of the Full Fathom Five project.

On November 11th, the acclaimed live Clutch DVD and accompanying “Full Fathom Five-Audio Field Recordings” CD will be available in over 1500 new retail outlets such as FYE, Best Buy, Coconuts, Fry’s, Hastings and Barnes & Noble.

“This is a fantastic progression for us after only three months as an active label.” states Weathermaker Music Label Manager Jon Nardachone. “Originally, our intention was to handle all CD and DVD sales directly through Weathermaker, but having the MVD Distribution team on board for the “Full Fathom Five” project ensures many ecstatic Clutch fans this holiday season.”

In other Clutch related news, some of the incredible footage from the “Full Fathom Five” DVD will be featured on Comcast Cable’s On Demand “Concert TV” channel starting December 15th, along with classic rock icons Led Zeppelin, Judas Priest, Black Crowes, Deep Purple, Santana, U2 & Motorhead.

Clutch’s live concert footage was produced and directed by Agent Ogden (Primus, Jon Comer, Music With Altitude) in Pittsburgh, Sayerville, Denver and Sydney Austrailia on the band’s 2007/2008 “From Beale Street to Oblivion” world tour. The track “Power Player” from that release, as well as “Full Fathom Five,” is featured on the Saw V Motion Picture Soundtrack released last week.

* Clutch will end 2008 the same way they began it, on the road. The band is confirmed along with Thin Lizzy, Black Label Society and Hawkwind to play the Hard Rock Hell Festival on December 6th in North Wales. Upon returning home, they will headline a short run with Viking Skull and Russian Circles as support.

"LIVE AT THE CORNER HOTEL"

04/04/2008

“Clutch first ventured to the fine Australian shores back in March of 2006, amid a decade of anticipation by their cult like following. What followed was a series of sold out shows and the start of an ongoing love affair between Clutch and Australia. New Found Frequency was also at The Corner Hotel for their first show in Melbourne, documenting it for the NFF website. While many of you have enjoyed the concert streaming online over the past year, we’re pleased to announce that due to overwhelming demand, it will now be available on CD. Clutch - Live at The Corner, will be a double disc album comprising of 90 minutes of music, artwork by Nick Lak and an exclusive 25+ minute interview with Neil detailing their travels in Australia. While the first Clutch CD has been met with overwhelming praise, this one promises to be just as good, if not better. Why don’t you decide?”

BEALE STREET ARTWORK

04/04/2007

A note from the band regarding the album art and packaging:

“A word about the artwork for From Beale Street to Oblivion - Nick Lakiotes designed the artwork for From Beale Street to Oblivion. He spent a long time generating original art and laying it out in what was to be a digipack format. A digipack, if you don’t already know, is the all-paper style of packaging for c.d.s’. We had approved a design that was to be in a matte paper complete with a removable booklet. It looked amazing. However, the U.S. pressing currently on the street features an unapproved design change in jewel case format. We apologize to Nick Lakiotes who worked so hard on his beautiful design and to our fans for not being able to purchase a better package, the type of packaging that we intended for this release.”
