Longtime rock band Clutch stops in Grand Junction for an 8 p.m. show, Wednesday, Nov. 13, at Mesa Theater and Lounge, 538 Main St., to promote its latest CD release “Earth Rocker.”

Tickets cost $25 in advance or $28 at the door.

Doors open at 7 p.m.

Clutch — band members are Neil Fallon, Tim Sult, Dan Maines and Jean-Paul Gaster — has been together since the early-1990s. The men were high school friends in Maryland, although the bass player, Maines, jokes that few people wanted the guys to play outside the garage.

“I think the fact we all knew each other prior to actually forming a band helped us stay together as long as we have,” he said.

“Earth Rocker,” released earlier this year, is Clutch’s 10th studio album.

“We had a specific goal in mind when we started writing the record: we wanted to have songs that really kind of packed as much of a punch as possible,” Maines said. “We didn’t really want to focus on any of the extended jamming aspects of the band. We wanted to try and stay away from some of the blues influences we had on the previous album.”

Clutch has toured with Motorhead, and Maines said it influenced the new album.

“It wasn’t like we sat down to write music that sounded like Motorhead. It was more the attitude ... and in production of the record,” Maines said. “We wanted to have a loud-sounding, live album.”
