Clutch Go Acoustic for ‘Drink to the Dead’ — Song Premiere
On April 26th, Maryland rockers Clutch will unleash a deluxe double-disc 25 song reissue of their beloved ‘Blast Tyrant’ album. The original 2004 release of the album won the group praise from many fans, among them Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor. “It’s one of the best records I’ve ever heard,” said Taylor. “Every track is gold — at least to me.”
Clutch have given Noisecreep the chance to premiere an exclusive bonus track from the reissue — an acoustic version of ‘Drink to the Dead.’ The electric version of the song originally appeared on the band’s 2001 ‘Pure Rock Fury’ album.

The unabridged title of the album is ‘Blast Tyrant’s Atlas of the Invisible World Including Illustrations of Strange Beasts and Phantoms,’ but Clutch have kindly saved music journalists a lot of typing time by shortening it.
Clutch recently confirmed a string of headlining shows in May 2011. Maylene and the Sons of Disaster and Groundscore will provide support. The tour kicks off on May 20th in Reading, PA, and runs through May 29th in Huntington, WV.
