Clutch Break Into US Top 15
Clutch have beaten off competition from pop stars to land at No. 15 on the official Billboard Hot 100 with their new album "Earth Rocker". It's a huge improvement on their last release "Strange Cousins From The West" which landed at No. 38 in 2009, which was already a pretty good placement for a rock band that makes no compromises. Previous efforts "From Beale Street To Oblivion" and "Robot Hive / Exodus" reached No. 52 and 93 respectively. They've done better in the US than the UK and Germany, where their albums didn't quite hit the top half of the top 100, but their label Weathermaker Music say they're "thrilled" with their latest album sales anyway. "The release campaign began six months ago. We executed on our worldwide plan by integrating touring, promotion, retail and digital marketing as well as specialty/metal and Active Rock radio campaigns in a perfect sequence. Our partners around the world backed us up," said label manager Stefan Koster (via Blabbermouth). "In the end, none of it would have been the same without this great album. Clutch is the quintessential American rock band!" See their Sin City-inspired lyric video for "Crucial Velocity" here:
