CLUTCH Gear Up For European Tour – New North American Tour Dates Announced!

 

 

 

Maryland rockers clutch are off to Europe this week for a five week tour that includes festival dates and club shows.    CLUTCH have announced the next North American legs of the “Earth Rocker” World Tour.  The tour starts in Edmonton Alberta for the Alberta’s Own Festival. The US run of dates kicks off September 14th in Baltimore, MD with an appearance at “The Shindig Festival”.  Support on the headline tour in September will come from The Sword and Crobot.  Support on the October and November shows will be provided by The Sword and American Sharks. Tickets for fan club members go on sale Wednesday June 5th and for the general public on Friday June 7th and Saturday June 8th.  Go to pro-rock.com for fan club early ticketing.

 

In addition to the new dates, CLUTCH has also confirmed that they will be returning to the newly opened Starland Ballroom (which was severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy), this December as part of their annual holiday tour.  Dates for the rest of the holiday shows will be announced later.

 

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 CLUTCH will be posting a tour blog throughout their European tour on how it really is.  The first post is available today and can be read on the band’s Facebook Page and http://www.pro-rock.com.

 

Frontman Neil Fallon recently taped an appearance for VH1 Classic’s “That Metal Show”.  The episode is set to air July 13th on VH1 Classic.   More details can be found on the VH1 Classic Website.

 

Earth Rocker was released March 19th via the band’s label Weathermaker Music.  The album entered the Billboard Top 200 chart at #15 achieving the band’s highest chart position to date.  The album then proceeded to hold its own on the Billboard Top 200 for a total of 5 weeks. The album also came in at #1 on the Hard Music Chart and #3 on the Independent Album Chart.  The digital demand for this album continues to be very strong. In the week of release Earth Rocker shot to #4 on iTunes’ overall Top 100 album charts and was #1 in their rock chart.

 

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