Maryland rockers CLUTCH will perform their second, self-titled 1995 album in its entirety at the following shows:
Dec. 27 - Charlotte, NC @ Amos' Southend
Dec. 28 - Washington DC @ 9:30 Club
Dec. 29 - Clifton Park, NY (Albany) @ Northern Lights
Dec. 30 - Boston, MA @ House of Blues
Dec. 31 - Sayreville, NJ @ Starland Ballroom
A bunch of other songs spanning the band's entire career will also be played at the above-listed dates.
These concerts will be filmed by producer and director extraodinaire Agent Ogden and featured on the "Strange Cousins From the West" DVD package, to be released in the spring of 2010.
On December 15, CLUTCH will issue a double vinyl package of their latest studio effort, "Strange Cousins From the West", through the band's self-owned label Weathermaker Music. This vinyl edition will feature two tracks that cannot be found on the CD version of "Strange Cousins..." The first track is the recently recorded "Metroliner Special" and the second is an extended version of the band's latest single and video, "50,000 Unstoppable Watts".
The first 4,000 pieces of "Strange Cousins" vinyl will include a coupon for a free digital download of all 12 songs through the band's web site, www.pro-rock.com.
Also this fall, Weathermaker will make available for digital purchase the former DRT Entertainment catalog, which includes "Blast Tyrant" (2004), "Robot Hive/Exodus" (2005) and "From Beale Street to Oblivion" (2007). Weathermaker plans to reissue all three of these in 2010 with a heavy dose of bonus material. Double vinyl packages are in the works for these as well.
"Robot Hive/Exodus" was made available digitally on November 30 and will be followed by "Blast Tyrant" on December 18. Due to the high amount of digital demand for the band's 2007 single "Electric Worry", Weathermaker has already issued "From Beale Street to Oblivion" on November 7 to coincide with the song's inclusion in the popular video game "Left 4 Dead 2" and its television commercial.
Berlin, Germany's PitCam Production and More-Metal.com recently conducted an interview with CLUTCH frontman Neil Fallon when the band played the Lido club in Berlin on November 11, 2009. Watch the chat below.
