Clutch Announce US Fall Tour w/ Wino * New July 14th Release Date for "Strange Cousins From The West" * Summer Tour w/ Baroness and More!

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 have just put the finishing touches on their ninth studio album, titled 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 now 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, the band is prepping their massive US Summer tour with the mighty Baroness, kicking off w/ a special July 3rd appearance at the House of Blues in Atlantic City, NJ w/ friends Shadows Fall, 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.

Onstage and on-record, when Fallon parts his mighty beard to open his mouth, the voice that emerges is so arresting, it puts your ass on lockdown before you have a chance to pull your finger out of your nose. - Decibel Magazine
