Tour Announcement: Mastodon and Clutch Join Together for ‘The Missing Link’ Tour with New York Dates

When two bands share a long-time friendship it’s bound to happen: a heavy-kicking co-headlining tour.

Metal fans can rejoice this spring as Mastodon and Clutch make 29 stops around the United States and Canada. Supporting them for the earlier part of the tour will be Big Business with Sweden’s Graveyard taking over for the remaining majority of the tour. Mastodon is set to close many of the shows but Clutch will be taking the lead at a few throughout the tour.

New York will catch the tail-end of the tour in May with stops at Central Park Summerstage in NYC May 19 and Rapids Theatre in Niagara Falls on May 20. The only other Northeast show will be in Boston at the House of Blues on May 17. Mastodon will be headlining these three shows.

Mastodon’s sixth studio album Once More ‘Round The Sun, released June 2014, has found a great amount of success, topping the CMJ Loud Rock charts for the 26th week in a row now and has been ranked highly on many year-end album lists. The song “High Road” from that album has been nominated for Best Metal Performance in The 57th Annual Grammy Awards being presented on February 8.

Clutch has seen similar success with their latest release from 2013, Earth Rocker, receiving a good deal of praise against the field of 2013 hard rock releases.

Tickets are on sale January 23.
