Clutch Release New DVD, Announce Tour and Reissue
"Our fans have been longing for something like this for over a decade" exclaims Weathermaker label Manager Jon Nardachone. "Our director/producer Agent Ogden captured the band performing a 19 song set which includes a molten-hot version of the entire self-titled release! He then subsequently produced the quintessential Clutch road movie, which we wrapped up in one mega-DVD set!"
Clutch, along with their jazz-rock instrumentalist alter-ego, The Bakerton Group, will take to the road in June and July in support of the internationally released DVD and the Strange Cousins From the West CD. The 22 date tour will take both Clutch and The Bakerton Group through the US, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Greece, Italy, and the UK.
In celebration of the DVD release and the upcoming tour, iTunes will exclusively make available the 19 song audio version of "Live at the 9:30" on May 25th for $9.99. In addition, FUSE TV, one of the broadcasting partners of this year's Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, TN, will make available, an exclusive free download of Clutch's forthcoming single "Let a Poor Man Be." Clutch will perform on the Sonic Music Stage at the Bonnaroo Festival on Saturday June 12th at 4:30 pm. The Bakerton Group will perform the night before at 10pm at the Troo Music Lounge.
Lastly, Clutch will be re-issuing From Beale Street to Oblivion as a double CD set on June 29th through Weathermaker Music.
