Clutch Live CD and DVD and Reissues Coming
Disc one features a 90 minute full length concert filmed with seven hi-definition cameras last December at Washington DC's legendary 9:30 Club. In addition to newer fan favorites like "50,000 Unstoppable Watts" and "Let a Poor Man Be," the concert film's first disc includes an electrifying version of the 1995 "Clutch" self titled release in its entirety. An audio version of the full 19 song concert will be exclusively available through iTunes on May 11th.
Disc two is the 110 minute feature film "Fortune Tellers Make a Killing Nowadays," which takes a behind the scenes look at Clutch "on tour" city by city in 2009. This "bonus disc" is not limited to recent Clutch happenings however, as it includes rare band interviews as well as vintage never before seen footage documenting much of Clutch's history from 1991 to the present. Both discs were directed and produced by Agent Ogden, who first worked with the band, on 2007's "Full Fathom Five, Video Field Recordings."
On June 4th Clutch will kick off another leg of their 2010 worldwide headlining tour. The early summer portion takes the band through the USA, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Greece, Italy and the UK. The band's instrumental jazz rock alter ego, The Bakerton Group will appear as one of the opening acts in North America. Both The Bakerton Group and Clutch will appear on the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival on June 11th and 12th respectively.
In support of the tourdates and the forthcoming "Live at the 9:30" DVD, as well as the current "Strange Cousins From the West" CD, Weathermaker Music will release the new single "Let a Poor Man Be" on May 3rd, with an accompanying video clip and a rare promo only EP featuring unreleased material.
As if that's not enough to keep this hard working rock & roll band musically busy, Clutch and Weathermaker Music are currently preparing expanded CD and vinyl re-issues of catalog pieces "From Beale Street to Oblivion," "Robot Hive/Exodus" and "Blast Tyrant." These three highly anticipated projects will be available digitally and physically at retail and the band's websites on the CD/DVD format on June 22nd, August 17th and October 12th respectively. Double vinyl versions of all three re-issues will be available on November 23rd. Track listings are not yet available, but Weathermaker label manager Jon Nardachone hints at some very exciting details.
"The bonus content of the three re-issues will be entirely different. We're still sifting through unreleased Clutch originals, cover songs, live audio, live video, alternate takes, etc, One thing we know for sure is that each re-issue will have updated and upgraded artwork/packaging as well as additional music from the exact timeframe each CD was first released. This is not about tacking on a couple of unfinished demos to the end of each CD. We're producing these with the knowledge that Clutch fans expect something fresh, yet distinguishably representative of that moment in time. The diehard fan will appreciate these projects in a big way."
