Clutch Announce ‘Book of Bad Decisions’ Fall Tour
Clutch have announced a fall North American tour in support of their upcoming album, Book of Bad Decisions, which is due for release Sept. 7.
The band will be supported on most of its headlining dates by Sevendust and Tyler Bryant & the Shakedown.
The tour kicks off with Clutch’s slot at the Sept. 16 Riotfest in Chicago. It also includes one date on which the band will open for System of a Down (Oct. 13 in San Bernardino, Calif.) and several additional festival dates.
The final stop on the 33-date trek will be Philadelphia, on Oct. 28.
As is the case with many bands, Clutch are bundling a CD copy of Book of Bad Decisions with each ticket purchased for their U.S. headlining dates. Fans will receive information on how to redeem the album after purchasing the advance ticket online. The offer is valid through Oct. 29; is open to U.S. residents only; is not valid on resale tickets or for festival dates, Canadian headline dates or the Oct. 13 date with System of a Down.
As previously reported, Book of Bad Decisions was recorded in three weeks in a Nashville studio with producer Vance Powell (Chris Stapleton, Jack White, Arctic Monkeys) and has a sound and feel that frontman Neil Fallon described as more “live” than some of their previous work.
“Vance is one of us,” Fallon said of Powell in a new interview with 103.7 The Eagle Rocks. “[He] understands the live parameters. He didn't go to a fancy audio school [then] directly to the studio. He paid his dues, and I think that's an education you can't buy.”
