Clutch Announce Winter Tour with The Devin Townsend Project and The Obsessed

Posted in Whathaveyou on September 12th, 2017 by JJ Koczan

Few good times in life are as guaranteed as spending New Year’s Eve at a Clutch show. That’s just the way it is. The Maryland lords o’ groove will be in the company of fans in Columbus, Ohio, as well as in the company of The ObsessedClutch shows involving Wino also always open up the possibility of them doing “Red Horse Rainbow”; also good times — and The Devin Townsend Project. The latter would seem to be the odd man out on the bill, though I suspect there’s a good amount of crossover between audiences given Townsend‘s metallic roots fronting Strapping Young Lad and the general universality of Clutch‘s appeal. If nothing else, it’d be fun to watch Hevy Devy making fun of all the stoners in the crowd, which seems likely to be a regular theme for between-song banter at the shows.

His work of the last few years got more proggy-indulgent than really suited my tastes — pretty much since The Devin Townsend Band became The Devin Townsend Project; earlier outings Ocean Machine: Biomech, Terria, Infinity, Accelerated Evolution and Synchestra remain unfuckwithable in my opinion — but if you didn’t hear it, last year’s Transcedence was actually really good. Well worth chasing down.

One way or the other, cool tour. And as Clutch get ready in January to start recording their next album, it’s one more chance to get introduced to new material ahead of time.
