After the twice-upgraded, sold-out CLUTCH performance in London in January to celebrate their then-forthcoming dynamite new album ‘Earth Rocker’, the band could not be more excited to return for further dates this July. Frontman Neil Fallon comments, “We are well stoked to have booked some UK headline dates in our summer festival run and can’t wait to get back to the UK!”
The much-loved Maryland four-piece have been honing their live chops for more than two decades. There is no question that seeing Clutch perform is a revelatory experience not to be missed. Fallon adds, “Our fans will be in for a good time, I guarantee it!”
Clutch will be shaking the following venues:
Mon 8th Jul – NORWICH Waterfront
Tue 9th Jul – NOTTINGHAM Rock City
Wed 10th Jul – MANCHESTER Academy 2
Thu 11th Jul – LONDON Forum
Expect all shows to be packed full of heart, soul, and badass riffery! Tickets are priced £15 regionally / £16 London and will go on sale on Friday 5th April at 10am.
The band’s tenth album, ‘Earth Rocker’, has already been hailed by a multitude of both fans and critics as the possible ‘Album Of The Year’. Released on March 18, via the band’s own label Weathermaker, it quickly shot up to the top of the iTunes chart as fans clamoured to get their hands on it, and closed out the week on an impressive #15 in the main US Billboard album chart.
