Clutch in Austin in 2011 (more by Tim Griffin)
Clutch

Clutch were supposed to tour this month but had to reschedule their September dates due to a health issue with singer Neil Fallon. A message from Neil on the band's Facebook reads:

Dear friends, this week I've learned that a childhood injury to the neck, a genetic predisposition for spinal disease, and 20 some years of head banging will exact a toll. I've been diagnosed with an ugly case of cervical spinal stenosis and two herniated discs.

In some instances these conditions can be treated non-surgically. This is not the case for me. I have been advised by several neurosurgeons that my spinal cord has already been damaged and that I risk further damage were I not to address the situation. For this reason, I've decided to take care of this ASAP. Believe me, re scheduling a tour turns my stomach, but I believe this is the wisest choice given the prognosis.

On Tuesday I will undergo surgery. The procedure will fuse three vertebrae together with a small titanium plate. I have faith that this surgery will go as well as it can, and that I will be back in the saddle for our October-November tour. On behalf of my spine, deepest apologies to those who had been looking forward to seeing CLUTCH over the next two weeks. We'll make it up to you.

Health and Happiness,

Neil

Those dates include the Port Chester show that would've happened at Capitol Theatre on 9/26 which is now rescheduled for January 11 with The Sword and Crobot (tickets) and the Long Island show that would've happened at The Paramount on 9/27 (not rescheduled at the moment).

The band's second leg of dates, which kick off in late October, are still happening as planned though. Those shows include a previously discussed NJ show happening at Starland Ballroom on December 27 (tickets), and they've also added a Brooklyn show happening on New Year's Eve (12/31) at Music Hall of Williamsburg. The Starland and MHOW shows will both be opened by reunited post-hardcore vets Into Another. Starland also includes Empire Escorts and Mike Dillon Band, and MHOW also includes Lionize. Tickets for the MHOW show go on sale Friday (9/20) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (9/18) at noon.

Updated dates are listed, along with a video, below...
