This tour is going to be insane! Mastodon and Clutch will team up this spring for “The Missing Link Tour!” Direct support will come from IndieMerchstore band Big Business on the first part of the tour (4/16 to 4/29) while Graveyard will open up the remaining dates.

Clutch drummer Jean-Paul Gaster had this to say about the tour: “We are very much looking forward to our US tour with our friends in Mastodon. We always enjoy playing live but when we have the opportunity to share the stage with a band as inspiring as Mastodon we know each evening will be that much more special. See ya out there!”
