(Burbank, CA) — As previously announced, Mastodon and
Clutch join forces for THE MISSING LINK TOUR along with special guests
Graveyard and Big Business – each taking part of the tour as support.
Together, this night of heavy rock will be one of the heaviest and most exciting
concert events of the year. Detroit has been added to the tour routing and tickets
to the Freedom Hall show on May 23rd show go on sale to the public on February
20th. Presale starts February 17th. Clutch will close the show in Detroit.

Neil Fallon (singer of Clutch) responded: “When we first announced the Missing
Link itinerary it was received with a lot of excitement. It also received a good deal
of consternation regarding the lack of a Detroit date. Myself included. So, we’re
happy to announce that there is now a Detroit gig on May, 23rd at the Freedom
Hill Amphitheater. See ya there.”Clutch sm

Support will be provided by Big Business, who recently supported Mastodon
throughout a sold-out European tour. Sweden’s Graveyard will then take over
the main support slot starting in Los Angeles on April 29th for the remaining dates,
closing out the tour in Columbus, OH on May 24th. Tickets are on sale now.
Mastodon and Clutch share a longtime friendship as fans will recall Clutch front
man Neil Fallon contributed vocals to “Blood And Thunder” (from Mastodon’s
2004’s Leviathan) so fans can expect surprises in store for fans throughout the
tour rumbling across North America. THE MISSING LINK TOUR will feature full
sets from both Mastodon and Clutch. Clutch will close the show on April 24th in
Vancouver, May 10th in Pittsburgh, May 15th in Bethlehem, May 16th in Baltimore
and also the final night of the tour, May 24th in Columbus. Mastodon will close all
other shows.

Maryland rockers Clutch have been pushing the boundaries that define heavy rock music since the 4 original members got together in high school.  Clutch is an unmatched musical force that has been best described as “the quintessential American Rock Band”.  Clutch released their tenth and latest studio album Earth Rocker via their own label Weathermaker Music on March 16, 2013.  The album entered the Billboard Top 200 chart at #15 giving the band their highest chart position to date.

Clutch’s Earth Rocker reached #1 on the Rock Chart and #4 on iTunes’ overall Top 100 album chart.  Earth Rocker was awarded “Album of The Year” by Metal Hammer and garnered a Top 10 spot on Rolling Stone’s “Top 20 Metal Albums of the Year”. Rolling Stone further enthused:  “Four Maryland lifers — road dogs who’ve been grinding since the early Fugazi administration, cranking out  seething admixtures of jam-band chops, careening blues-punk riffs and singer Neil Fallon’s nerdy, piss-taking wiseass lyrics — release their hardest rocking set to date. Look for a go-go break (and some clever punning on the phrase “drop the bomb!”) on “D.C. Sound Attack!” Inspirational verse: “If you’re gonna do it/ do it live on stage/ or don’t do it at all.”
