Clutch and Rival Sons have announced the Two Headed Beast tour, a run of dates that'll take the bands across the US later this year. The trek will kick off on September 5 at the Paramount in Brooklyn, NY, and wrap up at the Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas, NV, on October 10.

Support for the first 14 dates of the tour will come from stoner rock legends Fu Manchu, while the remainder of the dates will see southern rockers Black Stone Cherry open the evening's entertainment. 

“We are looking forward to our tour with Rival Sons," says Clutch mainman Neil Fallon. "Throughout the course of our set, Clutch will be performing Blast Tyrant [2004 album]. Both bands have plenty of mutual fans and will garner many more throughout the course of the Two Headed Beast Tour. We hope to see you there!"

“We’ve wanted to put something together with Clutch for a long time!" adds Rival Sons' guitarist Scott Holiday. "They’re one of the acts that we could notice people rep’ing at our shows, so we’ve always thought it could make a really 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 on April 19 at 10am local time from and
