Maryland hard rock icons Clutch will release Earth Rocker in March of 2013.
Fans can track the album's progress by going www.earthrocker.com, since 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.
"Last minute overdubs are fun," said frontman Neil Fallon about the album. "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 also shared, "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."
Guitarist Tim Sult was more succinct, saying, "As far as the composition of the songs go, this is the heaviest and fastest Clutch album to date. "
