CLUTCH Hard At Work On New Album

CLUTCH drummer Jean-Paul Gaster has posted the following update at the band's official website:

"As for the [new studio] album, things are looking very good. The drum tracks are all put down. The next couple days up here in Woodstock will be jam days. So far we have put down 15 tunes and a couple jams in about 4 days. I expect today and tomorrow should be just as fruitful. We begin overdubs next week. The album is to be delivered to DRT in April for a July/August release date. No titles as of yet. It seems the tunes are heavier and bit more 'out there' than 'Blast Tyrant'.

"The DVD is coming together. The Flint show is cut and looks raw! We have our director/editor friend Marco out here filming a good bit of 'in-the-studio' type stuff. This thing is completely homegrown and self-financed. It's slow going, but we are confident the end result will be very cool indeed.

"We look forward to putting these projects to rest and hitting the road."

CLUTCH are one of 18 bands confirmed for the Sounds of the Underground Tour 2005. The tour is scheduled to run June 25 through the end of July. The Sounds of the Underground will be an all-day event with music starting each day at noon and will be held in both indoor and outdoor venues in the U.S. and Canada.
