Clutch Reveals New Album Title As "Earth Rocker"

Maryland rockers Clutch have announced "Earth Rocker" as the title of their new studio album. "Earth Rocker" is scheduled for a worldwide release in March of 2013 on Clutch's label Weathermaker Music.

In conjunction with the album's release, Clutch will embark on the "Earth Rocker" world tour beginning in The United Kingdom in January of 2013. The band has completed tracking "Earth Rocker" with Machine handling all production duties. Machine is currently in the mixing process on the album. Fans can keep up on the progress of the album by visiting the band's new website right here.

Frontman Neil Fallon commented on the the recording process: "Last minute overdubs are fun. Harmonicas, tambourines (yes, we use those), claps, the odd backing vocal. Recording can be monotonous, so those unintended moments can be a lot of fun. It's kind of like kindergarten music class, but with beer. And sometimes the spontaneity of a last ditch idea breathes a lot of life back into a song that we've been beating up for weeks on end. A looming deadline can be a great muse!"

He continues, "It has a lot in common with Blast Tyrant in that Machine's production techniques are really unique. It differs from Blast Tyrant and a lot of other Clutch records in that, overall, the songs are faster and concise."

When asked about how this record differs from others, Clutch releases guitarist Tim Sult added, "As far as the composition of the songs go, this is the heaviest and fastest Clutch album to date."
