HistoryEdit

Early Years (1991 - 1999)Edit

Clutch - A Shogun Named Marcus (HQ)

Originally going by Glut Trip stemmed from "Moral Minority", Clutch was founded in 1991 by Dan Maines, Jean-Paul Gaster, Tim Sult and Roger Smalls in Germantown, Maryland. However before any recordings could be made Smalls would leave the group and would be replaced by Neil Fallon, a longtime schoolmate of the other members at Seneca Valley High School. Clutch would start off as a hardcore punk band, recording at Uncle Punchy Studios in Silver Spring, Maryland and releasing Pitchfork circa October 1991. A follow-up EP in Passive Restaints saw release in April 1992 via Earache Records, attaining the band further exposure. With their sound expanding beyond the hardcore beginnings, Clutch would begin work on a debut album, recording at Razor's Edge Studio in San Francisco, California with engineers Jonathan Burnside and Billy Anderson circa January 1993. Further recording would take place that April at Spa Studio Inc. in New York City, New York with producer Steven Haigler. Clutch's debut album Transnational Speedway League: Anthems, Anecdotes and Undeniable Truths would be released via EastWest Records on 17 August 1993, with a music video made for "A Shogun Named Marcus", directed by Dan Winters.

Clutch would begin touring with Biohazard through Europe and North America and then with the likes of Monster Magnet, Fudge Tunnel, Voivod,[3] Fear Factory and Sepultura among others. Following touring in 1994 work would begin on a second album, establishing the band's modus operandi of trying out new styles, drawing from blues rock, alternative rock, stoner rock and funk metal. The band returned to Uncle Punchy Studios to record in December 1994 and January 1995. The eponymous Clutch would see release on 9 May 1995, peaking at 33 on the Billboard Heatseekers charts and selling over 200,000 copies in the United States.[4] Clutch's sophomore album would be cited as a staple of the 1990s Stoner Rock scene[5] along with several of the album's songs remaining as staples of the band's set list.

Clutch would tour heavily to support their second album, first embarking to Europe as support to Machine Head and then returning to the States as support to Marilyn Manson on the Smells Like Children Tour/[6] Further touring over the next two years would see the band touring with the likes of Fu Manchu, Neurosis, Pantera[7][8] and Sepultura. Later in 1997 work would begin on a third record, lodging in a vintage house in West Virginia and drawing inspirations from various incidents in the house. The band would work with producer Jack Douglas (The Who, Aerosmith, Blue Oyster Cult, John Lennon, etc.) and sign with major label Columbia. The Elephant Riders would see release on 14 April 1998 and despite peaking at #104 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Heatseekers charts it would prove to be the only record with that label as they were dropped soon after.

Following an extensive touring cycle that saw the band with the likes of Limp Bizkit, Sevendust,[9][10] System of a Down, Slayer[11] and Iron Maiden[12] work would begin on a new album, recording with Larry Packer in 1999 and adopting a more groove-driven sound emphasized by blues rock influences and use of an organ.[13][14] Jam Room would see release on 1 October 1999 independently via the band's own River Road Records.

In a 2019 interview with Metal Express Radio Jean-Paul Gaster would explain the constant label changes in the band's early years and the frustrations that came with it, leading to the band forming their own label in 2008:

"In the early days, working with the labels was always a source of great frustration. We bounced around from label to label quite a bit in the first half of our career. You end up thinking about a lot of stuff that has nothing to do with making music or playing music. And as soon as we started our own label, all of a sudden, that was no longer an issue. The music can work hand in hand with the business as well.

The first [studio] record that we released on Weathermaker was 'Strange Cousins From The West' [2009], and each one of the records that followed after that, we learned a little something about how to release an album and how to set it up. For us to be able to chart the way that we did [with 2018's 'Book Of Bad Decisions' album] is incredible, and then when you take into account the state of the industry these days, we were extra proud of that.

[On handling the business side of their music] Certainly. We're very hands-on. We handle everything front to back. And by that, I mean when I'm home, I'm at the warehouse shipping out vinyl to Germany and the U.K. … It is work I do not mind at all doing. It's very fulfilling. And I know that very few bands do that and are capable of doing it, and for that reason, we're very proud of it."

Chart success: 2000–2007Edit

Clutch would sign with Atlantic Records in 2000 along with recording a new album that September. Working with guests such as Scott Weinrich (The Obsessed, Spirit Caravan, etc.), Leslie West (Mountain) and Sixty Watt Shaman, Clutch would release Pure Rock Fury on 13 March 2001, peaking at #135 on the Billboard 200 and #5 on the Heatseekers charts. The title track was initially released as the first single. The program director for North Carolina rock station, WXQR (Rock 105), Brian Rickman, suggested that the label switch singles to another track from the album, "Careful with that Mic." Atlantic did so, and Clutch achieved a surprise hit single. The follow-up tracks, "Immortal" and "Open Up the Border," were also well received by American rock stations. The song "Immortal" is featured in the video game Hitman: Contracts[16] while "Pure Rock Fury" is featured in the video game MotorStorm: Pacific Rift. Despite the ongoing success and a new audience, Neil Fallon had retroactively stated that Pure Rock Fury was actually his least favorite Clutch album.[17]

Clutch would ink a deal with Megaforce Records on 7 April 2003 for select re-issues and standalone releases,[18] such as the live album Live at the Googolplexand the rarities compliation Slow Hole To China. Clutch would tour with the likes of Deftones, Spiritual Beggars and Mastodon through 2003, touring again with the latter (and Nebula) the next year. Notably during the Deftones tour Tim Sult would break his wrist, leaving tour manager Jack Flanagan to fill in.[19] Clutch would also leave Atlantic citing frustrations with the label[20] before signing with DRT Entertainment on 3 November 2003.[21] The band would build their own music studio to record this next album.[22]

On 22 January 2004 Clutch would announce their sixth album, with Neil Fallon explaining the process in how the album came together:

"One of our approaches for 'Blast Tyrant' was to keep in mind that less can be more. So, we tried to use a minimum of tracks, keeping a classic stereo image in mind. Most of the lyrics were written on the spot, which lends some thematic cohesion, namely, the adventures of one conscientious objector, 'Worm Drink' (a demon, of sorts), and the effects of his actions (both anecdotal and epic) while fleeing the guns of the Blast Tyrant's prize ship, 'The Swollen Goat'. That is not to say that the record is any sort of rock opera. More like a soundtrack without a movie."
 
— Neil Fallon, Blabbermouth[23]

Blast Tyrant would see release via DRT Entertainment on 30 March 2004, selling nearly 60,000 copies and peaking at #147 on the Billboard 200, #4 on the Heatseekers and #9 on the Top Independent Albums chart while attaining positive reception from several publications.[24][25][26][27][28] A music video would be made for "The Mob Goes Wild", directed by Bam Margera and featuring several Viva La Bam co-stars in Ryan Dunn, Brandon DiCamillo, and Don Vito. The video was filmed at Rex's in West Chester, PA.[29]

Clutch would tour heavily through the year to support Blast Tyrant, notably touring that fall with Fu Manchu and High on Fire. Notably it would also be the earliest known instance of an ongoing Clutch tradition in their annual holiday tour where the band does a short string of shows from right after Christmas to New Year's Eve. The first known holiday tour would feature High on Fire as support.[30]

Along with being announced as part of the Sounds of The Underground touring festival, Clutch would announce that work had begun on a follow-up, described as "heavier" and "a bit more out there".[31] Produced by J. Robbins at Bearsville Studios in Woodstock and mixed at Water Music in Hoboken, NJ, Robot Hive/Exodus would see release circa 21 June 2005 via DRT Entertainment.[32] Robot Hive/Exodus would sell nearly 13,000 copies in it's first week of release, debuting at 93 on the Billboard 200[33]

Robot Hive/Exodus would see critical acclaim from the likes of Blabbermouth,[34] Drowned in Sound,[35] PopMatters,[36] The Aquarian[37] and Ultimate Classic Rock[38] The album also included two Blues covers, one by the legendary Howlin' Wolf and one by Mississippi Fred McDowell, continuing the band's musical virtuosity and their habit of playing various styles on their albums. Robot Hive/Exodus also signified the beginning of keyboard player Mick Shauer's time with the band. A compilation of early recordings and unreleased demos entitled Pitchfork & Lost Needles would also see release on 12 July 2005.[39] Clutch would tour North America and Europe through 2005 to support the album. The next year Clutch would tour with Corrosion of Conformity in the United Kingdom, which would include an appearance at Download Festival.

This would follow with the band's first ever tour of Australia the next year. Clutch would follow up with more touring of Europe and North America, closing out the year with a tour of the United Kingdom supporting Motörhead and makiing an appearance on the BBC Radio 1 program.[40] Prior to the Fall UK/Denmark tour Clutch would begin recording a new album circa October 2006, this time working with Joe Barresi (Melvins, Monster Magnet, Tool, etc.).[41] The band would spend three weeks recording the album at Sound City Studios in Los Angeles, leaving Joe to mix the album as the band embarked on their UK tour.[42]

From Beale Street To Oblivion would see release on 20 March 2007, further drawing from southern rock and blues rock influences and including a re-imagining of the Muddy Waters song "Trouble No More" as set staple "Electric Worry". It would sell over 15,000 copies in it's first week of release, peaking at #52 on the Billboard 200.[43] From Beale Street To Oblivion would be highly praised by several critics, including Keith Bergman of Blabbermouth, who stated the following in a 9/10 review: " — the band just cooks, with a live revival-tent intensity and more goddamn groove than you can possibly stand without involuntarily bouncing up and down in your chair. Clutch are carrying the flame for real American rock and roll, dumb rock for smart people, road warriors of the highest order and master artisans of the riff and the turn of phrase."[44]

Clutch would embark on a tour of Europe to support the album, including a marquee appearance at Roadburn Festival, followed by an appearance at Bonnaroo surrounding tours of North America and Australia. On 2 August 2007 it would be announced that Clutch would leave DRT Entertainment, citing themselves as "free agents".[45]

Following a string of North American tours alongside the likes of Murder By Death and Kamchatka, Clutch would announce on 5 May 2008 that they would be launching their own label known as Weathermaker Music for all future releases by the band, along with their side project The Bakerton Group.[46] The label's first release would be a live album in Full Fathom Five, released 12 August 2008.[47] A re-issue of Slow Hole To China would follow on 28 April 2009. Clutch would tour through 2008, including an appearance at the second ever Hard Rock Hell Festival.[48] Per Wiberg (Opeth) would also join the band as a live keyboardist for a string of shows circa August 2008.[49]

In early 2009 it would be revealed via The Obelisk that Clutch would begin work on their ninth album, working at Magpie Cage Studios with J. Robbins.[50] Further details on the album would surface that April.[51] Strange Cousins From The West would see release on 13 July 2009, the band's debut with their own label Weathermaker. Selling 13,000 copies in it's first week the album would peak at #38 on the Billboard 200.[52] Strange Cousins From The West would see praise from a wide arrangement of critics such as Blabbermouth,[53] Metal Storm,[54] Sea of Tranquility[55] and PopMatters[56] to name a few.

Clutch would tour heavily to support Strange Cousins From The West, including appearances at Planet Caravan Festival[57] To close out the year with their annual holiday tour, Clutch would perform the entirety of their 1995 self-titled album on the five date run.[58] A recording of the 28 December show would see release the next year via Weathermaker Music circa 11 May 2010. From Beale Street To Oblivion would also be re-issued that same year.[59] Through 2010 Clutch would participate in the Soundwave Festival, along with touring with the likes of Danko Jones and Black Label Society.[60]

On 10 May 2011 Clutch reissued their 2004 album Blast Tyrant on Weathermaker Music. The new edition contained a bonus album known as Basket of Eggs that includes unreleased songs as well as acoustic versions of previous hits.[61][62] In its first week of release Blast Tyrant sold close to 3,000 copies nationally, landing it at No. 26 on the Billboard Hard Rock Top 100, more than seven years after the original version debuted at No. 15. Along with the band's first ever acoustic in-store performance,[63] Clutch would also make appearances at several major festivals through 2011, such as Download Festival, Hellfest, Sweden Rock Festival and Azkena Rock Festival.[64] At a launch party for a Clutch beer via New Belgium Brewing, Clutch would premiere a new song in "Newt" as it was confirmed work had begun on a new album.[65][66]

Clutch would begin 2012 touring with Hellyeah and then with old friends in Prong.[67] The band would release their first new song in three years entitled Pigtown Blues in the summer, releasing it as a picture disc.[68] That August it would be announced that work on a tenth studio album would begin.[69] On 16 October 2012 further details on Clutch's tenth album would be unveiled as new songs would be revealed.[70]

Earth Rocker would be released on 16 March 2013, entering the Billboard 200 at #15, #6 on the Top Rock Album Charts and #1 on the Hard Rock Charts, along with charting in other countries.[71] In regards to the Billboard 200 it would be their highest charting album to date.[72] Earth Rocker would attain praise by several publications such as Metal Injection,[73] Metal Assault,[74] Pop Matters,[75] The Obelisk,[76] Exclaim![77] and Powerline Magazine[78] just to name a few. Earthrocker got 'album of the year' 2013 by Metalhammer magazine (UK), and was rated highly on a lot of rock/metal magazines and websites end of the year top 10's.

Citing the tour with Thin Lizzy as an inspiration to write more of a straightforward and pure rock and roll record,[79] Tim Sult and Dan Maines both explain the writing process of Earth Rocker, along with working with producer Machine:

"For me, I think my solos were the most affected part of my playing. They felt, at the time, and sound, now that the album is done, more focused and deliberate. I know, as a band, recording this album was much less open-ended like in previous records, but saying that there are some songs, arrangement-wise that do go on a trip for a while. [laughs] I would've never expected to be playing as many solos on this album, but they definitely had more of a direction than they usually do. It definitely took a lot more concentration, but I walked away from this album liking them more than I have on any other album. I just decided to trust the producer this time and not try to second-guess myself. Having Machine there really helped.

Honestly, I think a lot of it can be attributed to us working with Machine. His production style is a little more dialed in. He helped us really give shape to things prior to entering the studio. We don't normally enter the studio haphazardly and decide "let's make a record." But our ideas aren't as solidified or the direction isn't 100 percent figured out, so in the past that has led us to dwell on songs or solos too long and things tend to get overworked or extended."

 
— Tim Sult, Premier Guitar[80]
"[On creativity] Anything goes! That's the Clutch mantra as far as writing a song. Whether it's a slow tempo song or a blues song or a straight-up rock song, we always try to make it as heavy as possible. It's a common thread with anything we write. We want it to be heavy but sometimes that doesn't mean layers of heavy distortion. It can be the nature of the drumbeat. It's something that we're learning continually – how to adapt different styles of music into what we do and still maintain a level of intensity and heaviness. At the end of the day, that's what we are. We're a hard rock band.

[On writing a straightforward rock record] The nature of the songs really dictated that. When we started writing, what sort of songs we wanted to write wasn't something we necessarily talked about a lot. As we were getting more involved in the writing process, we realized that the more concise, straight ahead rock songs were the ones that really appealed to us the most at the time. Once we saw that, we made an effort to make that the theme of the record. We ended up with ten very, hard-hitting rock songs and one mellow tune in the middle of the record. It's called 'Gone Cold.' It's very much in the vein of some older songs we redid for the Blast Tyrant reissue. That was something completely new for us. Writing a song at such a low volume.

 
— Dan Maines, Noisecreep[81]

Clutch would tour extensively to support Earth Rocker, touring North America with the likes of Lionize, Orange Goblin and The Sword while also visiting Europe. On 12 September 2013 Clutch announced that they were postponing their September tour (except for a hometown show in Baltimore, MD at the Shindig Festival), due to health issues with singer Neil Fallon. Fallon released a statement through the band's Facebook page that said, "Dear friends, this week I've learned that a childhood injury to the neck, a genetic predisposition for spinal disease, and 20 some years of head banging will exact a toll. I've been diagnosed with an ugly case of cervical spinal stenosis and two herniated discs." Fallon was set to have surgery on 17 September 2013 and the band resumed their tour sometime in October.[82] The next year would see Clutch participating in the Soundwave Festival in Australia following an extensive North American tour. The band would return to Europe which would include several festival appearances such as DesertFest Berlin and Temples Festival,[83] along with an appearance at Converse Rubber Tracks in Brazil.[84] Pre-production had begun for a follow-up to Earth Rocker[85] and new songs would appear in the setlist in May, such as "Sidewinder".[86]

The band would also begin a new tradition in their own one-day festival known as Earth Rocker Festival.

Clutch would begin recording their next record circa 3 January 2018 at Sputnik Sound in Nashville, Tennessee with Vance Powell,[104] finishing their recording sessions by 27 January.[105] Details on this new album would surface, along with new singles in "Gimme The Keys"[106] and "How To Shake Hands".[107] Book of Bad Decisions would see release on 7 September 2018, peaking at #16 on the Billboard 200,[108] along with topping several other charts (#4 on Tastemakers, #2 on Top Rock Albums and Independent Albums, #1 on Hard Rock Albums). Book of Bad Decisions would attain critical acclaim along with the band's ongoing chart success.[109][110][111][112]

Clutch would tour North America and Europe extensively to support Book of Bad Decisions. The next year the band would begin a new series known as The Weathermaker Vault Series, the first of those releases being a cover of Willie Dixon's "Evil".[113] This would follow with a cover of "Precious and Grace" by ZZ Top, a re-recorded version of "Electric Worry" and a cover of "Fortunate Son" by Creedence Clearwater Revival.[114]

The band would suffer two tragedies in the fall, with former keyboardist Mick Schauer passing away that September[115] and longtime manager Jack Flanagan passing away the next month.[116] The band would press on and close out the year with their annual holiday shows, performing three completely different sets on the final nights and performing Blast Tyrant in it's entirety on New Years Eve.[117] Clutch were intended to tour the next Spring but were forced to cancel due to The CO-VID19 Pandemic, along with European shows and a South American tour. The band would keep busy working on new music and even curate a livestream concert with Crowbar.[118]
