Clutch Tour

Clutch is a rock band formed in Germantown, Maryland in 1991. Since it formed, it’s line-up included Tim Sult (lead guitar), Dan Maines (bass), Jean-Paul Gaster (drums), and Neil Fallon (vocals, rhythm guitar, keyboards). And for over 30 years, they have been rocking up the charts. Currently the band is signed onto the Weathermaker Music label.

Early years 1991–2003

Originally, Clutch had a lineup that included Dan Maines (bass), Jean-Paul Gaster (drums), Tim Sult (guitar), and Roger Smalls (vocals). In 1991, Clutch didn’t settle on a name and had debated between their early names, Glut Trip and Moral Minority. But after Roger Smalls left the band and was replaced by Neil Fallon, the band chose its name due to their interest in cars. And they were pleased with the one syllable name, which was common at the time with bands including: Prong, who the band was fans of.

In these early years, Clutch made their name through constant touring, but were first noticed by many major recording labels thanks to their 12’’ single Passive Restraints on the EArache label. The band released their first LP in 1993 and followed that up with their self-titled album in 1995 which gave them mainstream exposure.

Clutch Today

Clutch’s latest album was first teased in an August 2020 interview on the Detroit WRIF station when Jean-Paul Gaster stated that the band would probably start recording their 13th album in the winter. In interviews that followed, the band teased the album by sharing their creative process, which involved, among other things, recording songs and trying out ideas and seeing what stuck and what worked.

After two years of recording and build-up the band’s latest album was set for a September 2022 release.
