Maryland rockers Clutch have unfortunately been forced to postpone their September ‘Earth Rocker’ North American tour dates. The postponements, along with one show canceled entirely, are due to health issues concerning singer Neil Fallon.
Clutch’s 10th studio album, ‘Earth Rocker,’ was praised by both fans and critics when it was released in March of this year. Clutch have been on a roll ever since, booking a tour with support from The Sword and Crobot, but the group’s touring plans have come to a halt after learning that Fallon had been diagnosed with cervical spinal stenosis and has suffered two herniated discs.
As of right now, only Clutch’s September tour dates have been rescheduled, with October and November dates still planned to take place. The September shows will be postponed until January 2014, except for Clutch’s Sept. 21 show in Vienna, W.V., which has been canceled outright. Tickets for the West Virginia show will be refunded at its point of purchase, while tickets for postponed shows will be honored at their rescheduled dates.
