This fall, Clutch and Rival Sons are teaming up for The Two Headed Beast Tour. The run kicks off on September 5 in Brooklyn, New York and wraps up on October 10 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Very special guests for the trek will be Black Stone Cherry and Fu Manchu on select dates. The 23-show tour will see both Clutch and Rival Sons performing the majority of songs from one of their best-loved albums each: Blast Tyrant for Clutch, and Great Western Valkyrie for Rival Sons.

“We’ve wanted to put something together with Clutch for a long time,” says Rival Sons guitarist Scott Holiday. “They’re one of the acts that we could notice people repping at our shows, so we’ve always thought it could make a great double bill! Happy to bring the ‘Two-Headed Beast’ to life! The riff will be strong on this tour, as will the good times!”

Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 19 at 10am local time. An artist pre-sale begins today, Tuesday April 16 at 12pm using the password: BEAST. Check out the full tour itinerary below.
