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.

In conjunction with the album's release CLUTCH will embark on the Earth Rocker World Tour beginning in the United Kingdom in January of 2013. A complete list of dates can be found below. A full United States and Canadian headline tour will follow and is slated to run from March 8th through April 20th.

The band has completed tracking Earth Rocker with Machine handling all production duties. Machine is currently in the mixing process on the album. Fans can keep up on the progress of Earth Rocker by visiting the new website www.earthrocker.com. The website will be a hub dedicated to all things Earth Rocker. Fans can expect to see daily updates including photos, videos from the studio, song title announcements and samples of new songs. In addition to the new website CLUTCH has joined the world of twitter. Follow CLUTCH on Twitter @ClutchOfficial.

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.

In what has become an annual tradition, CLUTCH will play a string of Holiday tour dates this December.
