CLUTCH entered a West Coast studio in October with producer Joe Barresi (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, KYUSS, TOOL, WEEZER, MELVINS) to begin recording its new album, due in early 2007.
CLUTCH's "Burning Beard" single is out now on CD featuring the video for "Burning Beard". The U.K.-released vinyl 7" has "Slow Hole To China" on the flip side.
CLUTCH's latest album, "Robot Hive/Exodus", was produced by J. Robbins (JAWBOX, THE DISMEMBERMENT PLAN) at Bearsville Studios in Woodstock, NY, and was mixed at Water Music in Hoboken, NJ.
