CLUTCH: Earth Rocker Enters Billboard Top 20

Last week saw the WEATHERMAKER MUSIC release of the highly anticipated new studio album Earth Rocker from CLUTCH. Earth Rocker entered the Billboard Top 200 Charts at #15 marking the highest Billboard Chart debut in the band’s storied career. The album came in at #1 on the Hard Music Chart and #3 on the Independent Album Chart.


In addition to the impressive chart positions stateside, the band continues their global domination entering the German Top 100 Media Control Chart at #71. In the UK
Earth Rocker charted at #50 on the Top 200 Album Chart, #3 on the Top Rock and Metal Albums Chart and #11 on the Top Independent album chart.

Earth Rocker is continuing to make an impact at radio. The album is #1 at CMJ Loud Rock, and their second single, Crucial Velocity - for which they also released a lyric video – was added to The Welding Room rotation. The video was done by animator James Appleton and can be viewed HERE. Send your Death Threats/Complaints to TheWeldingRoom@gmail.com to hear CLUTCH on the radio program.

“WEATHERMAKER MUSIC is thrilled with this result. The release campaign began 6 months ago. 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. Our partners around the world backed us up. RED Music’s extraordinary support made much of this possible. But in the end none of it would have been the same without this great album. CLUTCH is the quintessential American rock band!”

- WEATHERMAKER MUSIC Label Manager Stefan Koster

Earth Rocker is available for purchase at the CLUTCH Merch Store.

WHITECHAPEL Members Launch YouTube Channels

WHITECHAPEL guitarist Alex Wade just launched his official youtube channel. Fans can subscribe now at youtube.com/AlexWadeOfficial. The first video is a performance demonstration of WHITECHAPEL’s Vicer Exciser from their upcoming re-issue of The Somatic Defilement. The re-issues was completely re-mixed by Audiohammer’s Mark Lewis and re-mastered by Alan Douches at West Westside.

Alex Wade comments on the new channel: “For a while, I have taken to videography as a second hobby to guitar playing. Creating this YouTube channel just combines my two favorite hobbies and allows me to connect more personally with our fan base, so it just seems like a natural thing for me to do. I will be posting song play throughs of Whitechapel (and non Whitechapel) songs, gear demos, FAQs, tutorials, tour videos, and a lot more.”

WHITECHAPEL fans can also subscribe to vocalist Phil Bozeman’s channel, which focuses on gaming, as well as responses to questions from fans. Subscribe at youtube.com/phillybo1985. The official channel for the band can be found at youtube.com/whitechapeltv.

An expanded band lineup and festival experience has been announced for the third annual Monster Energy’s Welcome To Rockville, April 27 and 28, 2013 at Jacksonville’s scenic Metropolitan Park along the beautiful St. Johns River.

LOOKING FOR AN ANSWER Announce First Ever UK Tour

Old school Spanish grinders Looking For An Answer announced a nine day headlining UK tour with The Day Man Lost. The tour marks their first time in the UK, kicks off March 22 in Manchester and runs through March 30. Additionally, the band will be performing a run of dates in Spain with Extreme Noise Terror this April. A complete listing of dates can be found below and on the TOUR DATES page.

The band is touring in support of 2011’s pulverizing Relapse debut Eterno Treblinka. The album can currently be heard in its entirety via Bandcamp.

 

CATHEDRAL Stream New Single, Unveil Album Cover Art

 

Cathedral’s The Last Spire will be released in North America on April 30, 2013. Recorded at Orgone Studios in London, produced by Lee Dorrian and Garry Jennings with assistance, mixing by Jamie Gomez Arellano and art by Dave Patchett and Arik Roper, The Last Spire will stand as the band’s final effort. The first single to be released, Tower of Silence, can be heard now at metalblade.com/cathedral.

And lo, Lee Dorrian, mouthpiece of Cathedral for 23 years, doth solemnly intone the death rites of this mighty British metal Titan. Born in the dying days of Thatcher’s Britain, bonding over then-unfashionable, obscure names like Saint Vitus, Pentagram, Trouble and Dream Death, Cathedral’s sole ambition was to record a demo tape. In fact they revolutionized doom metal, first pushing their influences into new avenues of grinding extremity, then pioneering groovier forms of ’70s-indebted stoner doom.

Lee Dorrian adds:

“When the last mix was finally done, there was a massive sense of relief. I think this was partly due to the fact that it meant Cathedral could finally be put to rest but also because we felt we’d done something that we were all very pleased with. I feel comfortable leaving The Last Spire as our legacy.”

He continues,

“The funeral of Cathedral has been a long but gratifying process. Deciding to end the band wasn’t an easy decision to make but we knew deep down in our hearts that it was the right thing to do.”

Read the full bio, written by Chris Chantler, at metalblade.com’s Cathedral artist page HERE.

Cathedral, released their first new recorded material in three years exclusively via Decibel Magazine‘s subscriber-only Decibel Flexi Series. The song, Vengeance of the Blind Dead, can be heard in the flexi included in the March issue. The track is also streaming on Decibel’s soundcloud page: soundcloud.com/decibelmagazine. Limited quantities of the issue with the flexi can be ordered on HERE.

Additionally, Cathedral will be the featured cover story for Decibel Magazine’s May issue, on newsstands in April. The feature will highlight the band’s storied career, as well as discuss their final studio release, The Last Spire.

The Last Spire was recorded by:
Lead Vocals – Lee Dorrian
Guitars – Garry Jennings
Bass – Scott Carlson
Drums – Brian Dixon
Hammond, Mellotron, Moog & Synths – David Moore
Guest Vocals on Cathedral Of The Damned - Chris Reifert
Backing Vocals – Rosalie Cunningham

NEGATOR Joins Forces With PROSTHETIC RECORDS

 

PROSTHETIC RECORDS will release Gates to the Pantheon, the new album by German black/death quintet NEGATOR, in North America this spring. The album is scheduled to be released physically on May 14 and digitally on April 23 to coincide with its European release through Viva Hate Records. The band – whose blistering “panzer metal” has solidified their reputation as one of Germany’s top extreme metal acts – is currently offering a free download of the single Atonement In Blood HERE.

Gates to the Pantheon, the band’s first new music in over three years, is the follow-up to their highly acclaimed third album Panzer Metal. That release caught the attention of Swedish legends Dark Funeral, who subsequently enlisted NEGATOR vocalist Nachtgarm to front their band throughout 2011 and 2012. The new album – recorded at Hammer Studios in Hamburg with producer Eike Freese (Gamma Ray, Callejon, Dark Age) – features nine bloodthirsty tracks (listed below) of pounding blackened death, hailed by Job For A Cowboy guitarist Alan Glassman as “one of the angriest-sounding releases I’ve ever heard – a black metal masterpiece.”

New album due this spring; first single available for free download

WHILE SHE WAITS To Perform At Benefit Event

WHILE SHE WAITS, formed by members of Phoenix-area mainstay bands The Tommy Gibbons Project (Tommy Gibbons, guitar, backing vocals) and Contrary to Reason (James Cole, vocals), are pleased to announce their involvement in the upcoming fundraiser show to benefit the F*ck Cancer Foundation. The show will take place in Tempe, AZ at Club 910 on March 16, 2013. Other bands performing will include headliners Sullen Musik, The Chimpz, Element a440, Fatal Error, Whiskey Six and Cassie and Chris of Frequis. Several of the bands are donating items to the cause.
20130228_193410

“Bands such as recently signed Phoenix band WHILE SHE WAITS are going to be performing the show and are donating a signed cymbal and the vocalist’s first mic. Evans Blue are donating a signed photograph and John Connelly of Sevendust is donating a signed CD by new project, Projected. Not to mention the many donations from our local bands and vendors from Schecter Guitars to Sullen Collection Clothing.” - benefit organizer Michelle Leach.

WHILE SHE WAITS vocalist James Cole states,

“WHILE SHE WAITS is very excited to play a small acoustic set for this show. Cancer has claimed so many lives and hurt so many families, we cannot think of a better benefit to contribute too. WHILE SHE WAITS will be playing our acclaimed song Face Behind the Gates, which was written about my daughter drowning in 1994. We will dedicate this song to all the people who have suffered through this terrible disease. This show is not about a band, popularity, etc. etc., but rather the cause – getting rid of cancer. We are excited and look forward to helping in any way we can.”

The benefit was originally put together by No Cover Magazine owner and publisher Michelle Leach, due to the recent diagnosis of a close family member. However, after beginning the event so many victims of this disease came forward that it is more than apparent this has been an epidemic for years that needs a cure NOW. The F*ck Cancer Foundation was chosen for many reasons. One of which is their impact with the national bands. You can currently see artists such as Five Finger Death Punch’s Ivan Moody on stage decking their swag to support the cause. The F*ck Cancer Foundation mission is to fight cancer by raising awareness and to educate about early cancer detection, ultimately putting an end to late stage cancer diagnosis. You may have scene booths set up at your local Rockstar Energy Drink Festivals such as Mayhem, Uproar and 48 Hour Festival. Please check out their link and donate at: http://www.fuckcancerfoundation.org/

WHILE SHE WAITS will be performing more select shows in the Southwest U.S. this March. See below for all confirmed tour dates:

3/15 – Phoenix, AZ @ Chilly Bombers
3/16 – Tempe, AZ @ Club 910 – No Cover Magazine Cancer Benefit
