Before saying goodbye to 2016, Maryland natives Clutch will return to the Lehigh Valley for a stop in Bethlehem.

The band will perform 7 p.m. Dec. 29 at the Sands Bethlehem Event Center, officials announced Tuesday in a news release.

Individual tickets cost $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Four-ticket packages cost $18.50. Tickets can be purchased at sandseventcenter.com and ticketmaster.com; by calling 800-745-3000 and at the box office, 77 Sands Blvd.  

Clutch has released 11 studio albums since forming in 1991, with their most recent being 2015's Psychic Warfare. The group's 2004 album -- which was reissued and re-released in 2011 -- spawned the single "The Mob Goes Wild." 

The band previously headlined Sands in May 2015.
