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: http://lionizemusic.com.

The video was directed by Agent Ogden (Clutch, Primus) and features guest appearances from Jess Margera of CKY, Pietasters, H.R. of Bad Brains and the crew from the 9:30 Club.

The band commented on the video:

“We are looking forward to sharing our second music video ever for Dr. Livingston from the Superczar album. We felt honored to have our friends HR, Jess Margera, the 930 staff and the pie tasters take part in this. We hope everyone enjoys it as much as we enjoyed making it.”

Maryland rockers Clutch have announced “Earth Rocker” as the title of their new studio album. “Earth Rocker” is scheduled for a worldwide release in March of 2013 on Clutch’s label Weathermaker Music. Be sure to check back with your pals at IndieMerch for more information including pre-order info! Can’t wait for this to come out.

In conjunction with the album’s release Clutch will embark on the Earth Rocker world tour beginning in The United Kingdom in January of 2013. In addition to the tour dates, the band will be available for press opportunities on select dates. A complete list of dates can be found below. A full United States and Canadian headline tour will follow and is slated to run from March 8th through April 20th.

The band has completed tracking “Earth Rocker” with Machine handling all production duties. Machine is currently in the mixing process on the album. Fans can keep up on the progress of Earth Rocker by visiting the new website www.earthrocker.com. The website will be a hub dedicated to all things “Earth Rocker”.

Frontman Neil Fallon commented on the the recording process for Earth Rocker and how it differs from other Clutch albums:

“Last minute overdubs are fun. Harmonicas, tambourines (yes, we use those), claps, the odd backing vocal. Recording can be monotonous, so those unintended moments can be a lot of fun. It’s kind of like kindergarten music class, but with beer. And sometimes the spontaneity of a last ditch idea breathes a lot of life back into a song that we’ve been beating up for weeks on end. A looming deadline can be a great muse!”

He continues, “It has a lot in common with Blast Tyrant in that Machine’s production techniques are really unique. It differs from Blast Tyrant and a lot of other Clutch records in that, overall, the songs are faster and concise.”

When asked about how this record how it differs from other Clutch releases guitarist Tim Sult added, “As far as the composition of the songs go, this is the heaviest and fastest Clutch album to date. ”

Clutch will also take to the road starting on Halloween for a quick run of dates including two stops in Flint, MI and two stops in Detroit, MI. MonstrO will open these shows with Lionize providing direct support. .

In what has become an annual tradition, Clutch will play a string of Holiday tour dates this December.

Updated: The Company Band’s new EP “Pros & Cons” charted this week on three of Billboard’s Charts. Pros & Cons came in at #25 on the Heatseeker Chart, #52 on the Hard Rock Chart and #116 on the Independent Chart.

Thanks to everyone who purchased the album thus far. Both editions are available by clicking below!

Five years ago in a small wood shed in central Pennsylvania, 5 men conspired together for one purpose and one purpose only, to make kick ass rock and roll music. That group, The Company Band, is Dave Bone, Neil Fallon (Clutch), Brad Davis (Fu Manchu), Jess Margera (CKY), and James A. Rota (Fireball Ministry).

Now, after one e.p., “Sign Here, Here, and Here”and one eponymous l.p. “he Company Band,” comes the “Pros & Cons” e.p. Recorded and mixed at the legendary L.A. studio, Grandmaster Recorders by Andrew Alekel, “Pros & Cons” keeps true to The Company Band’s original mission, offering five tracks of straight up kick ass rock and roll.

The collector’s edition vinyl is limited to 1,000 individually numbered pieces with one side featuring etched artwork. Pre-order your copy now as these are sure to sell out fast.

Pre-order scheduled to ship on or around July 27

Pros & Cons EP Tracklisting:
