Clutch to hit the UK in November

Maryland blues rock ass-kickers Clutch have just announced a UK tour in support of their recently released, and positively epic ninth studio album,Strange Cousins From the West.

We at Rhythm have been fans of the band for some time now, especially the incessant grooves of drummer Jean-Paul Gaster (hopefully you had a chance to see our killer interview with him in last month's issue?), so it's great to see them coming back to these shores. For a small taste of just how great the new record is, have a look at the video below for the song '50,000 Unstoppable Watts'...

The November dates are as follows:

01 - Norwich Waterfront
02 - ManchesterAcademy 2
03 - London Koko
05 - Glasgow Garage
06 - BirminghamAcademy 2
07 - ColchesterArts Centre

Support comes fromKylesaandKamchatka.
