On May 20, Clutch will headline their inaugural Earth Rocker Festival at Shiley Acres in Inwood, W.V. Also on the bill for the one-day event are Lucero, the Sword, Bad Seed Rising, Apollo’s Prophecy and the Frederick Rock School from the band's hometown of Frederick, Md.

"The first annual Earth Rocker Festival takes place at Shiley Acres, in West Virginia” frontman Neil Fallon said in a press release. “We played at Shiley Acres last year and it was a blast. Our intent is to have a really diverse bill. If all goes as planned, Earth Rocker Festival will continue as an annual event, hopefully growing in scope over the years.”

“Earth Rocker Festival is a great way to kick off summer!" Drummer Jean-Paul Gaster enthused. "The green rolling hills of West Virginia will provide the backdrop for our inaugural music event. We wanted to create a musical experience that included a diverse line up of music. We are pleased to announce this year’s line up includes our friends the Sword and the legendary Lucero. Come rock with us!”

Tickets are on sale now, costing $35 in advance ($45 at the gate), with children under 12 admitted for free. Gates to Shiley Acres will open at noon, with the music beginning an hour later. Although the music ends at sunset, overnight camping is permitted on the grounds. For full details on the location, on-site food and beverage options, nearby hotels and to purchase tickets, visit Shiley Acres' website.

Earth Rocker will kick off a summer of activity for Clutch. Yesterday, they announced that they'll take part in a month-long tour of the U.S. with Primus beginning in mid-July.
