Clutch Announce U.S. Tour Dates With Lucero + The Sword, Plan Inaugural Earth Rocker Festival
Need to get your Clutch fix in concert? The boys will be hitting the U.S. this spring for a short run of Psychic Warfare tour dates, including the inaugural Earth Rocker Festival, curated by Clutch themselves.
Clutch kept their underground buzz strong as ever with their 2015 album, Psychic Warfare. The stoner / blues act plan to tour the world in 2017, with eight dates already confirmed for U.S. fans this May with support from Lucero and The Sword.
“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.”
As for the Earth Rocker Festival, scheduled to take place May 20, Clutch plan to make it an annual event. “This spring we will be hosting the first annual Earth Rocker Festival,” Fallon reveals. “It’ll take place in Shiley Acres, West Va. 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.”
