CLUTCH Announce Earth Rocker as New Album Title

Maryland rockers CLUTCH have announced Earth Rocker as the title of their new studio album. Earth Rocker is scheduled for a worldwide release in March of 2013 on CLUTCH’s label Weathermaker Music.

Frontman Neil Fallon commented on the the recording process for Earth Rocker and how it differs from other CLUTCH albums:

“Last minute overdubs are fun. Harmonicas, tambourines (yes, we use those), claps, the odd backing vocal. Recording can be monotonous, so those unintended moments can be a lot of fun. It’s kind of like kindergarten music class, but with beer. And sometimes the spontaneity of a last ditch idea breathes a lot of life back into a song that we’ve been beating up for weeks on end. A looming deadline can be a great muse!”

He continues, “It has a lot in common with Blast Tyrant in that Machine’s production techniques are really unique. It differs from Blast Tyrant and a lot of other CLUTCH records in that, overall, the songs are faster and concise.”

When asked about how this record how it differs from other CLUTCH releases guitarist Tim Sult added, “As far as the composition of the songs go, this is the heaviest and fastest CLUTCH album to date. ”

CLUTCH will also take to the road starting on Halloween for a quick run of dates including two stops in Flint, MI and two stops in Detroit, MI. MonstrO will open these shows with Lionize providing direct support. .

MISS MAY I Releases New ‘Hey Mister’ Music Video Teaser

MISS MAY I have released a video trailer previewing their upcoming music video for the track ‘Hey Mister’ on the official band YouTube page. ‘Hey Mister’ is the first single cut from the band’s upcoming full-length album, At Heart.

Singer Levi Benton exclaims, “We’re so excited to be dropping this video next week and we thought we’d give you a little sneak peek of what to expect. The video took 3 days to film and it’s the biggest video we’ve ever done, which is good, because Hey Mister is the biggest song we have ever written. Check it out and get learning those words ready for Warped!”

At Heart will hit stores on June 12, 2012, and was produced by famed record producer Machine (Lamb of God, Every Time I Die, Suicide Silence). The band’s first album, Apologies Are for the Weak, reached #29 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. Their 2010 sophomore release, Monument, charted on the Billboard Top 200 and hit #10 on the U.S. Hard Rock chart. Churning out over 450 performances since 2009, the band is regarded as one of the hardest working young bands in the metal genre.
