Clutch drummer Jean-Paul Gaster had this to say about the tour.

“We are very much looking forward to our US tour with our friends in Mastodon. We always enjoy playing live but when we have the opportunity to share the stage with a band as inspiring as Mastodon we know each evening will be that much more special. See ya out there!”

Mark your calendars, as THE MISSING LINK TOUR will roll into Denver’s prestigious Red Rocks Amphitheatre on May 3, and joins the stellar line up for Atlanta’s Shaky Knee’s Festival on May 8. The New York City show will take over the  celebrated Central Park Summer Stage annual concert series on May 19.

At present Mastodon has remained on the CMJ Loud Rock charts for the 26th week in a row. OMRTS was placed No. 8 on Rolling Stone‘s “Top 20 Metal Albums of 2014″ list.

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.

CLUTCH Postpone September Tour Dates

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 shows scheduled for South Burlington, VT on 9/24 and 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.

All dates on the October – November leg of the tour will go on as scheduled and planned. The Hampton Beach 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

New SOULFLY Single Now Available

Logo: Nuclear Blast Records

Brazilian Thrash Heroes SOULFLY just released the first single, called ‘Bloodshed’ from their upcoming record, Savages which is now available at the Nuclear Blast Singlepool!

Max Cavalera is the walking embodiment of creative energy, of all of the diverse layers of urgency that are possible from that select few whose artistic output defines genres. Mystic shaman, protest singer, revolutionary hero, everyday metalhead, furious consumer of heavy music of all shades, husband, father, leader, songwriter… Cavalera reigns as the adoptive tribal chief of a generation of fans, stretching from the roughest slums of South America to the coldest confines of Russia. Anywhere that people are disenfranchised, the songs of SOULFLY serve as their anthems.

image001

Armed with Cavalera’s four-stringed guitars, unmistakable growl and instantly recognizable riffage, the muddy tones and constant rhythmic bounce of SOULFLY has retained its gritty edge while pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in metal. Savages represents a career-defining moment, solidifying the lineup with longtime lead guitarist Marc Rizzo (who has been in SOULFLY almost as long as Max was in SEPULTURA), bassist Tony Campos (STATIC X, MINISTRY, PRONG) and Max’s 21 year-old Zyon, who splits his time between drumming in LODY KONG and now SOULFLY.

“All of the things that make SOULFLY killer are combined in Savages,” Max declares.

Savages melds the most brutal, the heaviest and overall the most vibrant components that made up each record in SOULFLY’s diverse catalog. By Max’s own account, Savages is possessed of the tribal groove of the first two SOULFLY albums, particularly in songs like ‘Bloodshed’, ‘Ayatollah of Rock ‘N’ Rolla’ and ‘Master of Savagery’. But there’s also the thrash metal that was found on DARK AGES and OMEN; whereas the CAVALERA CONSPIRACY records contain short, punky bursts, the new SOULFLY record gets into the epic length territory of early METALLICA. The death metal vibe of SOULFLY’s Enslaved emerges in songs like ‘Fallen’ and ‘Cannibal Holocaust’.

“I really like the name Savages. I like single words that sound powerful, like ‘Primitive’, ‘Roots’, ‘Arise’,” Max explains.

“It’s about the human condition right now. We have the Internet and we’re working on missions to Mars, but we are still decapitating each other and blowing up marathons. We’re still savages. Even with technology and how far we’ve come in the world, our spirit is still that of a savage.”

A trailblazing pioneer and musician with millions of albums sold who nevertheless retains boundless street cred due to his grimy, raw and undeniable authenticity; Max Cavalera is one of the most prolific artists the realm of heavy music has ever known. There’s CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, which reunited Max with his brother and former bandmate, Igor Cavalera. There was the brutal attack of NAILBOMB, Max’s collaboration with Alex Newport from FUDGE TUNNEL, which included members of DEAD KENNEDYS, FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY, BIOHAZARD and NEUROSIS on-stage. There’s his forthcoming band with members of THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, MASTODON and THE MARS VOLTA. Of course, there’s Max’s unassailable work as SEPULTURA’s founder, leading the Brazilian band from their badass lo-fi beginnings, through their era of sophisticated thrash classics, up through the cultural landmark that is ‘Roots’.

image002

SOULFLY began almost instantaneously after his departure from the band he founded. The eponymously titled debut Soulfly sold over 500,000 copies in the United States alone, further expanding upon the tribal foundation of ‘Roots’ with percussive instrumentation, forays into esoteric sounds and multiple guest performers. Across the seven albums and never-ending tours that followed, Max worked with a who’s-who of the heavy music scene as band mates, guest musicians and touring members, including guys from SLIPKNOT, SLAYER, MEGADETH, DEFTONES, RADIOHEAD, STONE SOUR, CYPRESS HILL, MACHINE HEAD, DEVILDRIVER, FEAR FACTORY, MORBID ANGEL, THROWDOWN, S.O.D., SKINDRED, BORKNAGAR, WILL HAVEN and CATTLE DECAPITATION, among others.

In addition to Max’s own self-production, a number of important producers have lent their skills to SOULFLY, including Roots producer Ross Robinson (KORN, AT THE DRIVE-IN), Toby Wright (Ozzy Osbourne, SLAYER), Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE), ex-SOULFLY guitarist Logan Mader (FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, GORJIA) and Zeuss (HATEBREED, SUICIDE SILENCE) and Terry Date (PANTERA, DEFTONES).

Cavalera asked Date, who had mixed for SOULFLY in the past, to produce the new album. Once studio time with the legendary producer was on the calendar, Max kicked into high gear with the material. Max and Zyon worked on the songs that would comprise Savages at home.

Zyon came up to me and said, ‘Give me a shot. I’ll play on the record for you. I won’t let you down,” explains the elder Cavalera. “I went into a room with him to jam and it felt great. So I said, ‘Fuck yeah, let’s do it!”

Generally on a SOULFLY album, the drummers would learn the songs in the studio, based on demo recordings from Max. This time, Max had the luxury of working out the songs at home with Zyon.

We jammed every single day for a month. He knew 90% of the material already when we got into the studio. It reminded me of recording the old Sepultura stuff, like Arise and Chaos A.D., Igor knew exactly what he was going to do before we went into the studio. This was very similar.”

Cavalera says he must’ve written at least 1,000 riffs specifically for Savages.

“The killer riff is what hooks the whole song together,” he says. “For me the writing process is about finding the most killer riffs possible. It’s a battle; sometimes I struggle with the guitar for hours. You have to throw it down on the floor and take a break. Come back a few hours later. ‘Let’s try this again, motherfucker!’  Grab it again and go to battle, go to war with the guitar until you get the right riffs.” 

Max points to BLACK SABBATH’s ‘Symptom of the Universe’ as one of the penultimate riffs of all time, citing SABBATH’s Tony Iommi and METALLICA frontman James Hetfield as among the riff-masters he most admires.

“I think of riff making as an art-form. I take it really seriously. I think it deserves more attention. It has such value.”

Speaking of riffs, Rizzo came into the band a decade ago and his love of thrash metal, death metal and collaborative spirit has energized Max ever since.

“When Marc entered Soulfly, it was a drastic change. He’s the guitar player I’ve been looking for my whole life. Andreas [Kisser] and I really clicked when we worked together. I never had that again after that. We had other guys that were cool, but it was never 100% there. When Marc came in, I found it! We’ve developed a great bond since.”

Rizzo particularly shines on the opening track on Savages, ‘Bloodshed.’

“There’s stuff all over the song – clean guitars, feedback – he just makes the song better.”

Campos has a lengthy resume in the world of metal and Max says they bonded over their shared Latino heritage, among other things.

“I had this idea about this guy Vargas, a Venezuelan cannibal, they call him ‘El Comegente.’ He’s the Hannibal Lecter of the Andes. We both read about it. Tony sings some of it in Spanish and I sing in Portuguese. He’s a great bass player too, fucking amazing. Killer bass tones, distortion, all balls-out metal. He keeps this shit real heavy, great tone. It’s great recording with guys who know what they’re doing. I don’t have to ask if they know.”

Max acknowledges the inherent risk in putting a 21 year-old behind the kit for such an important record, but it was a risk he absolutely wanted to take.

“To have my son drumming on the album, that’s killer. I like risks. I like to start shit up and see what happens. Even if I fail, at least I knew I tried. Rather than knowing I didn’t try at all. To me, that’s the bigger failure. It took a little bit of courage to put my son on it. I came to the studio and told Terry there was a young drummer who doesn’t play to a click. Terry knew what to do and Zyon did great. The drums sound amazing.” 

Like all things Max Cavalera, does SOULFLY’s Savages is a family affair. Not only does it mark Zyon’s recorded debut with the band, but one of Max’s other kids throws down some vocals in the opening track, ‘Bloodshed’.

“My son Igor has a killer punk rock voice that reminds me of the old CORROSION OF CONFORMITY days,” Max says.

“The chorus has this old punk style riff, almost like a MISFITS type riff. His voice is killer.”

Like every SOULFLY album, Savages contains an impressive guest list comprised of veterans and up-and-comers. CLUTCH’s Neil Fallon turns up on ‘Ayatollah of Rock ‘N’ Rolla’, the title of which was inspired by Mel Gibson’s classic Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior movie. Jamie Hanks from I DECLARE WAR brought his high and low deathcore vocals to ‘Fallen’, a death metal oriented song Max says is in the vein of CANNIBAL CORPSE.

Mitch Harris from NAPALM DEATH contributed vocals to ‘K.C.S.’ Harris has been around the Cavalera’s long enough that there are videos of him changing Zyon’s diapers when SOULFLY’s new drummer was just one month old.

Mitch came to the studio just to hang out during a day off from tour,” Max explains. “I’m like, ‘You ready to sing some shit on this record?’ I put him on the spot. He’s like, ‘Right now?’ I said, ‘Fuck yeah, let’s do it!’ There was one point where we were recording together where he did a scream and I saw his eyeball popping out of his face like a cartoon. I was like, ‘Dude that was the most metal thing I’ve seen in a long time.”

Even as Max continues to consume new music from band like NINE INCH NAILS, MAN MUST DIE, TRIGGER THE BLOODSHED and I DECLARE WAR, even as he revisits seminal material from METALLICA, SLAYER, C.O.C. and the like, and indulges his penchant for world music, and gets his hands in his other projects and collaborations, it all adds up to a singular, distinct, straightforward and riff-heavy machine known as SOULFLY.
