Clutch Bassist Discusses "Book Of Bad Decisions"

For nearly thirty years now, Maryland rockers Clutch has made a name for themselves by putting out nothing but high quality music. With their mix of southern rock, heavy metal and good time attitude, they can perhaps best be described as "The world's greatest bar band." Their talent and popularity has led them to worldwide success, appearing at some of Europe's biggest metal festivals and selling out venues all over the globe.

One such sell out show occured in Bristol, in the south west of England last month, where Clutch were joined by duos Inspector Cluzo and The Picturebooks. Before the show, I caught up with the band's bass player Dan Maines to discuss the new album, "Book Of Bad Decisions," their reputation and legacy and much more. You can watch the interview in full below. More...

Clutch's Tim Sult Discusses Playing Special Shows

Heavy rock’n’groove maestros, Clutch recently returned to the United States after a European stint supporting Danish rockers Volbeat. As of December 27th, the Maryland-based group began a run of five dates in the east coast with Corrosion of Conformity. Ten days prior, the staff at the Austin, Texas nightclub, Emo’s flew Clutch out to play two special shows.

The first show, on the 17th, took place at Emo’s East. This large club formerly went under the guise of The Backroom. Since opening the new location, Emo’s has announced it will end fifteen years of punk and metal at its Sixth and Red River location. Emo’s has the reputation of being a legendary rock club, so the club decided to go out in style by bringing Clutch in to play an intimate show inside it’s club (the outdoor venue closed its doors a few weeks back).

Before and after taking Emo’s East’s large stage with tangible lighting, Metal Underground caught up with Space Master General, guitarist Tim Sult to get the details about these special shows, Clutch beer and new material. More...
