Maryland rockers Clutch have been pushing the boundaries of heavy rock music since the 4 original members got together in high school.  Having been tagged hard rock, blues rock, southern stoner rock and alternative metal by media and fans across the world, it is safe to say one thing… “What you see is what you get”, and what you get is a musical force that has been best described as the quintessential American Rock Band.

Clutch quickly became known for their relentless touring schedules, playing shows from whiskey stained 2 door venues in the hills of West Virginia to the iconic Brixton Academy in the UK.  Whatever the venue, and wherever rock fans congregate, Clutch has played there.  The band has shared stages with Lamb of God to Iron Maiden, Primus to Thin Lizzy, Mastodon to Motörhead.  What has come of it is a cult-like International fan base, not to mention praise from all corners of the music world.
