Clutch are re-releasing two awesome releases which can be pre-ordered here today! First up is the “Earth Rocker Deluxe 2XCD/DVD:”


* Pre-Order: Expected to ship on or around June 5, 2014 *

CD1: Earth Rocker
Adds two brand new tracks that were recorded during the original album session with Machine. The songs Night Hag and Scavengers now make this a 13-song CD.

CD2: Earth Rocker Live
Gives all those fans who have been clamoring for the CD version of the live material previously only avialable on the double vinyl picutre disc what they want.

DVD: Live In Denver
This was recorded 11/14/13 at the sold out Ogden Theatre. Seven cameras recorded the event in 1080i and captured every live aspect of Clutch at this show that brought the house down. Two videos – Gone Cold, (previously unreleased), and Crucial Velocity are added as bonus material. (Both videos were produced, filmed and directed by Aisha Tyler.)

All of this Clutch goodness is packaged in a brand new eight panel fold-out with a re-worked twelve page booklet and artwork from long-time Clutch art director, Nick Lakiotis.

Next up is the “Robot Hive/Exodus” 2XLP, finally available on vinyl for the first time! Up until now, Clutch’s Robot Hive/Exodus was never available on vinyl.


This beautiful double LP is re-mastered and comes in a re-designed gatefold package.

This album contains some of Clutch’s classic tracks, such as “Mice and Gods” and “10001110101″; and it closes with two hoary old blues covers: Mississippi Fred McDonald’s “Gravel Road” and Howlin Wolf’s “Who’s Been Talking?”. These are all songs that Clutch fans care about deeply.

As the rock, soul and blues trio Lionize prepare to head back out on the road in April, the group–Nate Bergman (vocals/guitar), Henry Upton (bass/vocal) and Chris Brooks (keyboards & vocals)–have announced they’ll perform all summer long on the Vans Warped Tour, launching June 13 in Houston, TX.

“We are very excited to return to the Vans Warped Tour as alumni in 2014,” Lionize frontman Nathan Bergman states. “With a variety of talented bands and new attractions this year, we are really looking forward to bringing some loud and funky Rock and Roll to the festival. See you all summer long!”

Hailing from Silver Spring, MD–near the Washington, D.C. stomping ground of their hardcore idols—LIONIZE recently released their new album Jetpack Soundtrack on Weathermaker Music, the label owned and operated by Maryland rock group Clutch. Co-produced by Jean-Paul Gaster, drummer of Clutch, and Machine (Fall Out Boy, Lamb of God, King Crimson) at the Machine Shop in Belleville, New Jersey, the album finds the group creating an 11-song journey through their multi-faceted musical influences–spanning heavy rock, soul and blues–such as Deep Purple, O. V. Wright, Led Zeppelin and Solomon Burke. The album’s first single “Reality Check” showcases Lionize’s precise musicianship; they smoothly shift gears and smack you with a gargantuan hook at an exhilarating pace. Listen to “Reality Check” here:

On top of the epic pre-orders, the band offers a never done before item. An adventure card game created by the band themselves for the fans. This card game will plunge the listener into the absurd and gory world of ABORTED. If you like your horror to be old school and have a twisted sense of humor, this is for you! The card game comes with a die and 110 exclusive cards to play.

Svencho details: “The card game starts off with my humble self finding the “Necrotic Manifesto” at a truck stop while taking a dump on tour, reading out passages and unleashing hell on earth. Through the card game players will take on the role of either a band member or a crew member and will have to defeat the legions of hell alongside their maniacal leader: the doctor! All presented with a good dose of dark humor, horror and tons of internal jokes… players will not only be treated to a one of a kind game but in turn, get to know the members of the band a bit better and on a more personal level.”

UPDATE: New flyer posted below with full European dates!


When Despised Icon announced their return to the stage after a lengthy hiatus, fans were beyond excited (IndieMerchstore was too!). Erik Jarrin, longtime guitarist of the band, recently took some time out to answer some questions about their upcoming European run as well as their Canadian appearance. Big thanks to Erik for doing this. Be sure to check the flyers below for full information and if you are in the area, head out to a show!

1. When did the conversation start to get back together to play these festival dates?

Ever since we announced the split about four years ago, we’ve been asked every year by festival promoters in Europe and North America to reunite. Back then, Alex Erian started Obey The Brave and I was rejoining my former band Heaven’s Cry while raising my twin daughters, so the timing wasn’t right. We both released albums with our respective bands and Alex went on a crazy tour schedule with his band so he wasn’t available at all to do anything besides this. Since some of the other guys had kids as well, no one was really into doing this until now. Then, about a couple of months ago, new offers came knocking at the door and Alex reached out to me saying he had down time with OTB as they were between album cycles so we said, fuck it, we all miss it, let’s do this!


2. Was this a collective idea to get the band back together for some shows or did you have to go through a movie style montage recruiting the guys to play some shows?

Actually, I’m pretty much the only one that kept in touch with everyone in the band. Alex would come to my place every now and then when not on tour, Benoit helped me a lot in the first weeks I had my daughters with home stuff, I went to see shows with Sebastien a couple of times, Grind and I kept in touch through email and he came visit me once and I went out for dinner with Steve once or twice. We’d also gather at my place for an annual BBQ in the beginning of every summer so when the time came, it was easy business for me to reach out to everyone. The only challenge was to accommodate everyone according to their respective schedule and make it all work.


3. What can fans out there expect from Despised on these reunion shows as far as merch and potential set lists?

Well, these are reunion shows! Meaning we didn’t write new stuff, didn’t plan on reviving the band so our focus is on getting back together for a couple of rehearsals in Grind’s basement and to have the time of our lives playing together again on stage. Looking back at our career, The Ills of Modern Man is pretty much the album that did it all for us, so expect a lot of material off of that album. We are also revisiting some of the more obscure stuff that hasn’t been played in years and obviously all the classics will be part of the show. Honestly, I think fans are in for a treat. Merch wise, well we didn’t do any new design, we decided instead to bring back some of the classic shirts, jerseys and hoodies that became our trademark for many years and hopefully, the fans will get their hands on some of these designs as we’ve been asked a lot about some of them that were discontinued for many years.

Screen Shot 2014-02-21 at 12.55.44 PM

4. The response to the reunion has been fantastic. Do you see the band keeping an open door policy on playing shows in the future after this run?

The reality is that most of us have to take time off from work and for some of us, away from our families so this is a very unique opportunity to gather and do these shows. I don’t see it as something we’ll repeat over and over again. It’s been almost 4 years, fortunately for us, fans stuck to our music, stayed connected through our social media platforms and the timing was right so let’s assume that stars won’t be aligned all the time and let’s just make the most out of it. We should never say never, but the way it worked out and to see how difficult it was to get everyone available at the same time makes me believe that this won’t happen a lot in the future. So hopefully, all the fans will show up at some of theses shows and will share that love of extreme music with us once again. see you in the pit!
