The official lyric video for “Earth Rocker”, the title track of the new album from Maryland rockers CLUTCH, can be seen below.
Produced by Machine (LAMB OF GOD, FOUR YEAR STRONG, FALL OUT BOY) at the Machine Shop studio in Belleville, New Jersey, “Earth Rocker” will be released on March 19 via CLUTCH‘s own Weathermaker Music label. The CD was described by CLUTCH vocalist Neil Fallon in a recent interview with DCHeavyMetal.com as “probably faster than most of our recent albums. Maybe compared to some other bands, it’s not the fastest thing on planet Earth. For us it was definitely a step up in the tempo. And I think the other thing that kind of stands out about this one is the blues influences that we’ve been flirting with over the past couple records is more or less absent in this record, which didn’t really happen intentionally until we looked back at it. As a whole, it’s just much more of a straight-up rock and roll record.”
The artwork for “Earth Rocker” was created by Nick Lakiotes, longtimeCLUTCH art director, who has worked on previous efforts, including“Robot Hive/Exodus” and “Strange Cousins From The West”.
CLUTCH‘s North American dates kick off March 8 in Cincinnati, Ohio and are currently slated to run through April 20 in Baltimore, Maryland.
