 LIONIZE North American Tour Dates Start December 5th

Video Featuring First Samples of New Music Available Now

LIONIZE will be hitting the road beginning December 5th supporting Spacehog and Sponge.  LIONIZE will then play two headline shows and select dates supporting Clutch. The band will be playing songs from their upcoming new album as well as LIONIZE favorites.  A complete list of dates can be found below.

Singer/Guitarist Nate Bergman spoke about getting back out on tour and showcasing their new material:

“We are really looking forward to getting back on tour, hitting some of our favorite cities and playing these new songs. We are beyond happy to have seen the reaction from fans towards the new material from the last tour, and we are adding even more to the rotation this time around. This is really just the tip of the iceberg for the anticipation towards the release of the new record for 2014.”

It was recently annouced that LIONIZE have signed to Weathermaker Music, the label owned and operated by Maryland rockers Clutch (Distributed by RED).  LIONIZE is the first independent artist to sign with Weathermaker Music, a label that has, up until now, served as the exclusive platform for all things CLUTCH and individual band member related side projects.  The album was jointly produced by CLUTCH drummer Jean-Paul Gaster and Machine at the Machine Shop and is set for release in the first quarter of 2014.

LIONIZE filmed a series of videos documenting the recording process of their new album.  The second video in the series has now been posted at www.lionizemusic.com and can also be viewed on the LIONIZES’ YouTube Channel HERE.  This video features frontman Nate Bergman talking about Jean-Paul Gaster’s (Clutch) involvement in the forthcoming LIONIZE record and how Machine was a “coach” during the recording process. Listen close for a few teasers of the new tracks from the new record.

 The first video in the series (which can be seen HERE) features Jean-Paul Gaster and Machine as they speak about the recording and production process. Their high praise of LIONIZES‘ skillful song-writing and agile musicality bodes well for this project.

weathermaker releases new Deep Swell record… “Lore of the Angler”

For Immediate Release

September 30, 2013

Pre-Orders Available Now For DEEP SWELL’s Debut Album

 Featuring Tim Sult of CLUTCH

 Lore of the Angler October 15th via Weathermaker Music

DEEP SWELL is a true rock band rising from the banks of the Potomac River near the historic town of Shepherdstown, WV.   Now with their sound crafted, their first album Lore of the Angler is set to be released on Maryland Rockers CLUTCH’s record label Weathermaker Music on October 15, 2013.  In addition to being released on CLUTCH’s label, CLUTCH guitarist Tim Sult is a member of the band. With a powerful female lead vocalist and precise rhythmic force, their sound is a mix of riff-based rock, psychedelia and mysterious poetic lyrics.

Lore of the Angler is available for pre-order now from the Weathermaker Music Store.  Pre-order your copy at http://www.indiemerch.com/weathermaker

Years of friendship and mutual appreciation for each other’s talents brought guitarist Tim Sult into collaboration with drummer Jesse Shultzaberger and bassist Logan Kilmer.   Sult earned his stripes as the guitarist and one of the founding members of the popular rock band, Clutch.   Shultzaberger is a versatile drummer who currently tours with the Americana band, The Woodshedders.   Kilmer, who honed his technique and methods with Noetic Pull, plays five-string with a smooth bass style to the depth of which helped spawn the band’s name.    At the beginning of 2012 they met Briena Pearl and invited her to join the trio.   Pearl, a lifelong student of voice, theater, and dance, quickly proved the sheer force of her talent as a singer and songwriter, thus establishing an instant chemistry with the band and a clear direction for their emerging sound.   With this final addition in place DEEP SWELL’s dynamic sound was forged.

In February 2013, the band recorded Lore of the Angler at Magpie Cage Recording Studio in Baltimore, MD.   Three months later, they were signed with Weathermaker Music, with the label overseeing distribution, touring and publicity for the album starting this fall.   The current is pulling hard and for Deep Swell the tale is just beginning.

DEEP SWELL have scheduled a handful of dates supporting the release of Lore of the Angler, including a CD release party set of October 19th Shepherdstown, WV at Opera House Live.  Following that show the band will out through October 23rd with Lionize providing support.  A complete list of dates is below.

Lore of the Angler Tracklisting:

  1. Shows Off
  2. You’re Not Sleeping
  3. Criminal Reward
  4. Hilltop
  5. By Woah
  6. Cry Wolf
  7. White Coat

clutch head to europe… announce new us tour dates for the fall… and more!

For Immediate Release

June 4, 2013

 

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.

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.

earth rocker hits billboard chart debut at #15

March 27, 2013

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.

 

CLUTCH is currently out on the Earth Rocker North American tour.

The tour runs through April 20th ending in Baltimore, MD.  Supporting on the first

leg is Orange Goblin, Lionize and Scorpion Child.

 

The second leg of the Earth Rocker North American tour was recently announced

and will kick off May 1st in Richmond, VA and run through May 26th in San Antonio, TX.
