Weathermaker Music, the label owned and operated by Maryland rockers CLUTCH (Distributed by RED) has announced the signing of the DC quartet LIONIZE. This is a big step for both the label and LIONIZE as they join forces to release the bands 5th album. LIONIZE is the first independent artist to sign with Weathermaker Music, a label that has, up until now, served as the exclusive platform for all things CLUTCH and individual band member related side projects. "The chemistry is there," says Nate Bergman, LIONIZES' vocalist. "We all know each other very well from being on the road together many times. This is a tremendous opportunity for LIONIZE and we appreciate all the support we are getting."

The album was jointly produced by CLUTCH drummer Jean-Paul Gaster and Machine at the Machine Shop and is set for release in the first quarter of 2014. Check out this video that features Jean-Paul Gaster and Machine as they speak about the recording and production process. Their high praise of LIONIZES' skillful song-writing and agile musicality bodes well for this project. LIONIZE will be hitting the road this month and will be debuting songs from the new album as well as playing LIONIZE favorites. A complete list of dates can be found below.
