“It should be fairly obvious by now that Clutch are huge fans of ZZ Top” states vocalist Neil Fallon. “They’re a band that we grew up listening to – and we still listen to them to this day. ‘Precious & Grace’, from their classic Tres Hombres LP, is easily one of our favourite ZZ Top songs and that’s really the only story behind the choice.”
This Friday, 12th July, Clutch embark on an 18-date co-headlining US tour with Killswitch Engage that also includes Clutch’s curated Earth Rocker Festival in Inwood, WV. The band return to England in December 2019 for four headline shows, bringing with them Graveyard and Kamchatka as special guests.
Clutch’s Jean-Paul Gaster comments, “We are super excited to have Kamchatka and Graveyard out with us on this year’s European tour. We are massive fans of both bands. Joakim of Graveyard is one of my favourite singers out there today. I look forward to watching him and the band put down some serious grooves. Of course our friends Kamchatka always bring the boogie so get there early and be ready for an evening of good old rock n roll! See you soon! ”
Come out for a festive frolic! The dates are:
Tue 17th Dec – SOUTHAMPTON O2 Guildhall
Wed 18th Dec – LONDON Roundhouse
Thu 19th Dec – LEEDS O2 Academy
Fri 20th Dec – NOTTINGHAM Rock City
Last month, Clutch released the song Evil.
