Clutch announce spring US dates and debut Earth Rocker Festival

Clutch have extended their tour in support of 2015’s “Psychic Warfare” with news of a string of headline US dates this spring and the band’s first annual Earth Rocker Festival.

The Maryland outfit will play seven east coast shows with Lucero and The Sword starting May 10 in Asheville, NC.

“We did a whole bunch of touring in 2016,” says frontman Neil Fallon. “Right now, we’re cooling our heels and starting to kick around some riffs for the next record. We hope to be recording the LP come the end of the year. Where and with whom is yet TBD. At the moment though, we’re really just at the beginning phase of writing and we already have a surplus of ideas.

"In other news, this Spring we will be hosting the first annual Earth Rocker Festival. It’ll take place in Shiley Acres, West Virginia. We played at Shiley Acres last year and it was a real blast. Our intent is to have a really diverse bill. If all goes as planned, Earth Rocker Festival will continue as an annual event, hopefully growing in scope over the years.”

Clutch will announce the full line-up for the Earth Rocker Festival soon.

Pre-sale tickets for all tour dates except Shiley Acres are now available, with general public seats for all headline dates and Shiley Acres will begin February 10 at 10am ET.

Clutch’s eleventh album, “Psychic Warfare” debuted at No. 11 on the US Billboard 200 upon its release in October of 2015.
