Clutch recently invited a handful of journalists, radio programmers and label peeps to hear six songs from their new album, Earth Rocker. So far, only those in attendance have had the chance to hear the new material in full. For now, though, we have some pretty killer artwork to hold us over.
Clutch has officially revealed the cover artwork for Earth Rocker, with a March release date tentatively being eyed. The artwork was created by longtime collaborator Nick Lakiotes. And as you can see above, Lakiotes once again did a stunning job.
As if that wasn’t enough for one day, Clutch also announced initial dates for the Earth Rocker world tour. The North American leg of the tour will feature support from Orange Goblin, Lionize and Kyng. If you are a fan of stoner rock and metal in any sense, then this tour should excite the hell out of you!
