NEW BAKERTON GROUP ALBUMPosted: 12/09/2008
Weathermaker Music Inks Deal w/ RED Distribution * Announces New Bakerton Group Album Out February 17th!
“Clutch have so many fans here at RED, and we couldn’t be happier they chose us to be their distribution partner... Helping the band build their new label will make 2009 an even better year at RED.” - RED Senior Vice President of Product Development Alan Becker.
“We’re so amped about our deal with RED. I’m convinced their team is as hungry as we are to take The Bakerton Group, Clutch and Weathermaker Music to the next level.” - Weathermaker Label Manager Jon Nardachone.
Weathermaker Music, the label owned by touring juggernauts Clutch, has inked a multi-year, multiple release North American deal with Sony/BMG owned RED Distribution. First on deck, slated for a February 17th release through the formidable alliance, is the new BAKERTON GROUP release entitled “El Rojo!”
Produced by Clutch and J. Robbins at Magpie Cage Studios in Baltimore, MD, “El Rojo” will be the first full tilt release from THE BAKERTON GROUP, the psychedelic instrumental jazz-laden alter ego of Clutch (all 4 original Clutch members make up The Bakerton Group). In addition, Per Wiberg from Opeth was brought in to handle all piano, synth and keyboard duties on all 10 of “El Rojo’s” tracks.
In other Clutch related news, some of the incredible footage from the band’s first ever live DVD/CD, “Full Fathom Five,” will be featured on Comcast Cable’s On Demand “Concert TV” channel starting December 15th, along with classic rock icons Led Zeppelin, Judas Priest, Black Crowes, Deep Purple, Santana, U2 & Motorhead.
* Clutch will end 2008 the same way they began it, on the road. In late December, they will headline a short run with Viking Skull and Russian Circles as support. Starting Feb 11th to March 3rd, both Clutch and The Bakerton Group will simultaneously tour the the United States, before recording the highly anticiapted follow-up to the “From Beale Street to Oblivion” CD.
