The Clutters In The Press

The Clutters have a loose notion of place and time -- with a push and punch back-dated to Fifties Memphis and Hamburg’s Star Club in the mid-Sixties.” – David Fricke, Rolling Stone

“The music has a fearless, untamed energy that shames most of their too–cool–for–rock–school, retro contemporaries.” – David Browne, Blender

“Most impressive is the sense one gets that this band is simply doing what it wants to do...” – Cameron Lawrence, Paste Magazine

“They’re simply the band you wished were playing your bash. Intuitive with the handclaps, messy with the cymbals and clockwise with the volume knobs.” – CMJ

The Clutters clearly revel in making fun, rebellious and catchy rock songs.” – Lily Percy, NPR


About The Clutters

Nashville-based band, The Clutters, will release its third album of pure, unmitigated rock n’ roll fury on May 10th. Breaking Bones arrives on the heels of the band’s critically praised second full-length, Don’t Believe A Word. The album is preceded by the single “Under Suspicion” (MP3) which will be available as a limited edition 7-inch at mom and pop stores nationwide on Record Store Day 2011, April 16th.

Ten years ago, when The Clutters first exploded onto the Nashville scene, there was a lot of head scratching. So this is rock n’ roll, eh?  When the band’s debut album hit, the record pretty much exploded the “rock free Music City” myth and now, ten years after the genesis of The Clutters and on the eve of  their third album, Breaking Bones, Nashville has become an epicenter for the rawest of rock n roll. Coincidence? Probably not. The Clutters might not take credit for the path they blazed, but they blazed it none the less.

Breaking Bones finds The Clutters – vocalist/guitarist Doug Lehmann, bass player Jake Rosswog, drummer Stephanie Brush and keyboardist Andrew Higley – raising the bar for rock n’ roll once again with twelve tracks that land somewhere between Vanilla Fudge and The Voidoids, AC/DC and The Animals. The Clutters barrel through the rock pantheon with a punk rock propulsion and the belligerence of Bon Scott on Breaking Bones, leaving no ass un-shook and no fist un-pimped.

These are anthems for an unemployed, unloved and unsatisfied America. No concessions are made to decorum, no acknowledgment made of the delicate sensibilities that have sucked the fun out independent music over the last decade. This is hyphen-free rock n roll – all energy, no bullshit.  The new The Clutters album Breaking Bones will be released by Chicken Ranch Records on May 10th, 2011.

Members of The Clutters are available for interviews.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
