These live shows are handpicked by the band and reflect some of the best live atmospheres that can now be listened to by a much larger global audience.

Watch Clutch Perform “Sunrise On Slaughter Beach” In Full In Baltimore, MD

Yesterday (September 17), Clutch streamed a live set from Hammerjacks in Baltimore, MD. The performance found the band playing their new album, “Sunrise On Slaughter Beach,” in its entirety and more. You can check that out below:

Clutch To Perform New Album “Sunrise On Slaughter Beach” In Full During Livestream Show

Clutch will be celebrating the release of their new album “Sunrise On Slaughter Beach” by performing it in full at Hammerjacks in Baltimore, MD on September 17. The set will be available to stream for free on YouTube. Frontman Neil Fallon commented:

“‘Sunrise on Slaughter Beach’ is a weird record. It was, by and large, a studio creation. It reminds me a lot of Jam Room in that regard. Under normal circumstances we may not have entertained the idea of using vibraphones, theremin, or backing vocals (thank you Deborah Bond and Frenchie Davis!). But as they say, necessity is the mother of weirdness. The YouTube stream of our September 17th performance at Hammerjack’s is a way to say thank you for all the fans who have supported us over the past 31 years, the last two years in particular. Also, it’s a good way to inspire us to get our shit together and learn the new material.”

Clutch Premiere “Slaughter Beach” Music Video

Clutch have premiered a new video for their new song “Slaughter Beach.” This track is from the band’s new album “Sunrise On Slaughter Beach,” which will be released on September 16. Neil Fallon commented:

“The lyrics for ‘Slaughter Beach‘ were inspired by a late night walk along the southern Delaware Bay. Off things happen there.”

Clutch To Release New Album “Sunrise On Slaughter Beach” In September

Clutch have officially revealed the details for their new album “Sunrise On Slaughter Beach.” The effort will be released on September 16 and the cover art and track listing can be found below:

“Sunrise On Slaughter Beach” Track Listing:

01. “Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)”
02. “Slaughter Beach”
03. “Mountain Of Bone”
04. “Nosferatu Madre”
05. “Mercy Brown”
06. “We Strive For Excellence”
07. “Skeletons On Mars”
08. “Three Golden Horns”
09. “Jackhammer Our Names”

Drummer Jean-Paul Gaster says he initially expected the album to sound like “Earth Rocker,” but it has since taken on a life of its own:

“The more the songs took shape, the less I saw that kind of an album. Something different took shape. The record we ended up with is, in some ways, the most different record we’ve made in a long time.”

A press release also offered more information on the effort:

“‘Sunrise On Slaughter Beach’ introduces some ‘firsts’ into the Clutch canon: vibraphone (from Gaster), theremin (J. Robbins), and female backup vocals from singers Deborah Bond and Frenchie Davis. The album’s nine songs are a diverse ride, destined to please long-time fans and intrigue newcomers alike. It’s a new chapter in an ever-unfolding story which means as much to the fans as it does to the band.”

Clutch Premiere New Song “We Strive For Excellence”, Announce Fall Tour With Helmet, Quicksand, & JD Pinkus
