CLUTCH Receive Worldwide Accolades

2013 has been quite a year for Maryland Rockers CLUTCH. In March they released Earth Rocker, their tenth 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 SabbathSpain‘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 VoiceNew Noise MagazineMetal SucksLoudwire,  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. All dates and links to purchase tickets can be found below.  The Sword and Crobot will provide support on the January 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 20 in Sydney at The Metro, February 21 in Brisbane at The Zoo and February 27 in Melbourne at Prince Bandroom.  Tickets for the headline dates are selling fast and the shows are anticipated to sell out!

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).  The stunning artwork displays the four Indian heads from the original package in all their colorful beauty: one for each side.

LIONIZE Premiere New Video

Washington, DC quartet LIONIZE recently completed work on a video for their song Dr. Livingston. The song is taken from the band’s latest release Superczar and the Vulture. The video was directed by Agent Ogden (Clutch, Primus) and features guest appearances from Jess Margera of CKY, Pietasters, H.R. of Bad Brains and the crew from the 9:30 Club. Check out the exclusive premiere of the video HERE.

On Tour With Clutch This Spring

The band commented on the video:

“We are looking forward to sharing our second music video ever for Dr. Livingston from the Superczar album. We felt honored to have our friends HR, Jess Margera, the 930 staff and the pie tasters take part in this. We hope everyone enjoys it as much as we enjoyed making it.”

LIONIZE will return to the road this March alongside Maryland rockers Clutch. The first leg of the tour also features Orange Goblin and Scorpion Child and kicks off March 8 in Cincinnati, OH. The second leg of the tour sees LIONIZE alongside Clutch and The Sword. Those dates begin May 1 in Richmond, VA. A complete list of shows can be
found on the TOUR DATES pages.

For a band with so little pretense, sometimes it can be easy to forget just how much LIONIZE accomplished since their inception in 2004. From being the first band to play both Bonnaroo and the Vans Warped Tour in the same year to their five full-length albums to virtually non-stop touring year after year, the groove-heavy rock group has dared to do more than most bands could ever hope to accomplish. On the release of their most recent album, Superczar and the Vulture, produced by the famed J. Robbins, the band showcases their live sound in a way that they have never done before, allowing the listener an unprecedented look at the experience of hearing the songs played live in front of them.
