CLUTCH's First-Ever Acoustic In-Store Performance; Video Available

Maryland rockers CLUTCH took part in their first-ever acoustic in-store performance on Saturday, May 28 at Earshot Music & Movies in Greenville, South Carolina. The band's set consisted primarily of selections from its "Basket Of Eggs" project from the "Blast Tyrant" deluxe reissue. The charitable food pantry "Loaves And Fishes" was also on site that afternoon collecting canned food and non-perishables for the region's recent weather-related victims. Earshot and Weathermaker Music set up a large "food basket" inside the retailer and those who donated a canned or non-perishable food item received a free CLUTCH tour poster and were first in line to have it autographed by the band after their acoustic performance.

Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be viewed belw.

The "Blast Tyrant" deluxe reissue sold 2,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release, landing at position No. 26 on Top Hard Music Albums chart, more than seven years after the original version debuted at No. 15. The double-disc package, which features the "Basket of Eggs" bonus CD, triumphed in the Northeast, where it broke into the Top 10 at the mammoth Newbury Comics chain, and was the No. 1-selling double disc.

CLUTCH kicked off a nine-date headlining tour on May 20 in Reading, Pennsylvania. The trek features MAYLENE & THE SONS OF DISASTER as main support. CLUTCH is keeping the average ticket price for these shows to a fan-friendly $17.50. CLUTCH has also confirmed a headlining run for this July, with CORROSION OF CONFORMITY serving as direct support. The tour will kick off with two special shows (July 20-21) in the New York area.
