Craveonline: Not to get overly personal right off, but will your new baby put a kabosh on how much touring Clutch does?
Neil Fallon of Clutch: We hadn't planned any touring regardless, baby or not. We've pulled back on our touring just because the older you get; it becomes a drag to just go on touring forever and ever. This two-month tour we're about do [with Black Label Society & Children Of Bodom] is about as long of a tour as we're willing to do... We'd actually only like to tour four weeks at a time. This one is an exception to the rule because it's a support slot and you can't really pick and choose how long you're gonna play. We also knew that after this one we were really going to focus on writing the next record so they're wouldn't be a lot of touring.
Clutch churns out new LPs on the regular, so look for that LP. In the meantime, check them on the above-mentioned tour which hit Hammerstein Ballroom on 10/20. The CMJ show was one of a scant few metal events during the festival, and the largest of the bunch (with Nevermore at Gramercy coming in second).
The sold-out BV-BBG Saturday night showcase at Union Pool was also one of those events. Pictures from that show are forthcoming, but more from Clutch and the rest of the gang at Hammerstein (some setlists included), with all remaining dates, below...
