Clutch announce debut Blast Tyrant album performance

Clutch will deliver the debut performance of their 2004 album, “Blast Tyrant”, in its entirety during a New Year’s Eve show in Philadelphia, PA.

The group’s sixth studio release is full of classic tracks, including “The Mob Goes Wild”, “The Regulator”, “Cypress Grove” and “Profits Of Doom.”

The New Year’s gig is part of the Maryland band’s annual US winter holiday tour, which will see them play five straight nights between Christmas and the end of the year.

Currently on the road in Europe in support of 2018’s “Book Of Bad Decisions”, drummer Jean-Paul Gaster shares the group’s plans to perform unique shows for the final three dates of 2019, which will see fans treated to some deep tracks among the planned 54-song series.

"We've been having a blast over here in Europe playing a ton of songs spanning our 28-year career," says Gaster. "Nuremberg marks the fourth night of the tour, and so far we've played 62 different songs. It is for this reason we've decided to play three completely different sets for the final three Clutch shows of 2019.”

Clutch recently issued a cover of the Creedence Clearwater Revival classic, “Fortunate Son”, in sync with the release of the latest single in their ongoing Weathermaker Vault Series.
