Clutch in Vancouver on Thursday night for the first of two shows with Mastodon. The bands are calling this The Missing Link Tour. On this night, Mastodon closed the show, while their tour partners did the same the following night.
The hard-rock acts share a longtime friendship, according to a press release. Clutch front man Neil Fallon contributed vocals to “Blood And Thunder” (from Mastodon’s 2004’s Leviathan album).
Originally from Maryland, the form members of Clutch formed the band in high school. The group released its tenth and latest studio album Earth Rocker via their own label Weathermaker Music on March 16, 2013. The album entered the Billboard Top 200 chart at #15 giving the band their highest chart position to date.
The Missing Link tour kicked off on April 16 in St. Paul, Minnesota, and ends in Columbus, Ohio on May 24.
