CLUTCH Mourns Death Of Longtime Manager JACK FLANAGAN

CLUTCH is mourning the loss of its longtime friend and manager, Jack Flanagan.

The Maryland rockers announced Flanagan‘s passing in a social media post earlier today. They wrote: “We lost a hero today. Jack Flanagan was super human in every way. For 25 years, Jack guided the band through every conceivable situation with a precision and enthusiasm that will never be matched.

Over the past few months, CLUTCH has released several new studio recordings that comprise the newly launched “Weathermaker Vault Series”. This is the first new official music CLUTCH is making available since the release of their critically acclaimed album, “Book Of Bad Decisions”.

CLUTCH is currently on a U.S. fall tour with DROPKICK MURPHYS, along with hardcore/metal veterans HATEBREED as direct support.
