Hot on the heels of unveiling the roster of bands set to appear at their annual one-day event in West Virginia, the Earth Rocker Festival, CLUTCH announce a rather interesting tour.
This summer, North America will be the target of CLUTCH‘s co-headlining trek with none other than KILLSWITCH ENGAGE… but that is not all. Support on the run will be provided by CRO-MAGS (JM)*, with ALL THAT REMAINS also appearing on select dates.
As mentioned, this tour news follows an announcement from CLUTCH earlier this week where they revealed the acts set to play their 3rd annual Earth Rocker Festival. Set for July 13th at Shiley Acres in Inwood, West Virginia, the festival will feature the following acts: Clutch, Killswitch Engage, Cro-Mags (JM), Fireball Ministry, and a set from the Let There Be Rock School. Find tickets HERE.
Ticket sales to the general public for the CLUTCH / KILLSWITCH ENGAGE tour launched Friday, May 17th.
*(The (JM) designation to the CRO-MAGS is an identifying marker to the John “Bloodclot” Joseph / Mackie Jayson version of the band. Band bassist Harley Flanagan now operates his version of the iconic NYHC band as just Cro-Mags as per a recent legal ruling).
