CLUTCH’s Earth Rocker Enters Billboard Charts at #15!

Sales and Radio Charting Hit Record Marks World Wide!

 

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”

was added to SiriusXM channels Octane, Liquid Metal and Faction. The band has

also released a lyric video for “Crucial Velocity”.  The video was done by

animator James Appleton and can be viewed HERE.

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!” says

WEATHERMAKER MUSIC Label Manager Stefan Koster.

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