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 Announce “Collector’s Series” Vinyl Reissue Of “Robot Hive/Exodus”

Clutch will be reissuing “Robot Hive/Exodus” on vinyl as part of their “Collector’s Series.” Pre-orders can be found HERE.

More details on the release were shared in a press release:

“Curated by band bassist, Dan Maines, the vinyl release is remastered and manufactured on 180-gram colored vinyl, stored in extra heavy sleeves and limited to only 7,500 units worldwide. The gatefold jacket is printed on metalized polyester paper, and each album includes a numbered insert autographed by the band. As an extra special element this 2xLP includes a 7” with two tracks: “What Would a Wookie Do?” and “Bottoms Up, Socrates”. These two songs were originally among the 16 songs written and recorded for ‘Robot Hive/Exodus’ back in 2005 but were left off the final album for time purposes.”

Maines commented:

“I’m very excited for the Clutch Collector’s Series release of Robot Hive/Exodus. With the additional 7 inch you can now hear the complete recording session remastered. We consistently play a number of these songs in our live sets every night, and have even dusted off a couple more for our current tour!”

Clutch Premiere “Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)” Music Video

Clutch have premiered a new video for their new song “Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone).” You can check that out below and purchase a collector’s edition shirt box HERE.

Frontman Neil Fallon commented:

“Early in 2021, I learned the Boss Metal Zone pedal schematic was being presented as “proof” that the Covid-19 vaccine had an electronic component to communicate with 5G cellular networks. It was, of course, nonsense. It sounded like a Philip K. Dick premise. I didn’t want to write a song specific to Covid-19 vaccines, so I went with the Philip K. Dick angle (again). “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” came to mind (replicants, in particular, representing what is real and not real, or is there a difference at all?). The video makes no secret that this is an homage to Philip K. Dick and a future where we have distortion coursing through our veins.”

Drummer Jean-Paul Gaster added:

“‘Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)’ is one of the faster cuts on our forthcoming album. It kicks in and hits like a freight train. The intensity of the recording reminds me of our live shows. This song cooks and I can’t wait to play it on tour!”
