Fans can RSVP HERE.

Frontman and lyrical wordsmith Neil Fallon shares, “We Strive For Excellence looks back fondly on childhood summers filled with grand plans gone awry, inexplicable bruises, untreated injuries, and of course, the timeless wisdom of Evel Knievel.”

CLUTCH released first new single, Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone) , back in April to much acclaim from fans and critics alike. The track has already hit nearly 300k streams on Spotify alone and the official music video has clocked up 340k YouTube views.

Clutch released their twelfth studio album, Book Of Bad Decisions, through their own Weathermaker Music in 2018. Rolling Stone described the album as “bathed in the grit and liberal fuzz tone that has made their live shows legendary.” The band embarked on a successful co-headlining tour with Dropkick Murphys in 2019, with support from Hatebreed, Amigo The Devil, and Russ Rankin of Good Riddance. Two of the band’s most recent albums, Earth Rocker (2013) and Psychic Warfare (2015), were included in Classic Rock Magazine’s 50 Best Rock Albums of the 2010s.
