Here at ChiIL Live Shows, Clutch has been one of our favorites for years. Usually we put the ipod on shuffle and let it go, but earlier this week we were on an all Clutch bender for a couple of days. So, I was extra stoked to see the title track off Earth Rocker land in my in box and to be able to share it with our readers!
We have an exclusive video interview with Neil Fallon, live pit photos from their recent tour with Prong and more, coming soon...so check back with ChiIL Live Shows like we vote in Chi, IL...early and often.
