Preview: Clutch & Mastodon w/ Big Business
Showbox SoDo, Seattle, WA
Diligently pursuing the road less taken, Mastodon creates unconventional rock masterpieces. Pushing conceptual musical boundaries, their acclaimed technical prowess layers sonic textures with aggressively thoughtful, emotionally trenchant lyrics for a genre-bending blend of American heavy metal. One of the preeminent metal bands of the early 21st century, Mastodon is touring in support of their sixth studio album Once More ‘Round the Sun, released last year.
Co-headlining this Missing Link tour with Mastodon are revered Maryland heavy rockers Clutch. At work on a follow-up album to 2013’s acclaimed Earth Rocker, Clutch do their best work on a live stage. Heavy riffs, no frills, honest southern-tinged power. Their energetic stage presence and hard-charging sound will have you hanging on every chord.
Seattle sludge metal band Big Business will open the show at Showbox SoDo, April 26.
