Clutch’s Neil Fallon Guests On New The Picturebooks Song “Corrina Corrina”

Neil Fallon (Clutch) and Dave Dinsmore (Brant Bjork) are featured on The Picturebooks’ new song “Corrina Corrina.” You can find a video for that track below:

The Picturebooks commented:

“This was a dream come true! I mean – come on – Neil fucking Fallon from Clutch and Dave Dinsmore from Brant Bjork join us on this track??!!!!!

We love how the song turned out and we LOVE how much Neil and Dave gave for this song and that they’re so happy with the outcome!

That´s what music can do, it can be a bridge, even in a time where we can´t travel…nothing can stop us from making music!”

Fallon continued:

“Clutch toured with The Picturebooks in 2018. It was a great tour and we got along really well with Fynn and Philip.

A few months back I received an email from them, inviting me to sing on a track they recorded. I was flattered and I loved the track. The lyrics are my spin on the old American standard “Corrina, Corrina”. Hopefully one day we will be able to perform this on a real stage with a real audience!“

Dinsmore added:

“I was living in Kreuzberg, walking home one day and randomly saw Fynn, Phillip and Claus hanging out at a local record shop (Core-Tex Records).

We started talking, snapped some photos with the Core-Tex guys and decided we would meet up later for a skate-session at E-LOK Bowl.

As soon as I got home, I got a text from Claus asking me if I would want to record some bass on a song they were working on. I didn’t hesitate – of course I was down to jam with these dudes!

I invited them over later that day, and we laid down some tracks right there in my apartment.

I hadn´t touched a bass in more than a year and this particular fender precision bass of mine hadn´t even been opened yet. We recorded everything straight into a DI Box over my lousy speakers and only went through the song like 4 times. Never wrote anything down – just magically happened.

Later I would learn that Neil Fallon from Clutch would be singing on the song I played, which was an awesome surprise.

We ended the day with a rad skate session with the gang from Barrio Skate Shop. It was one of the most serendipitous, best days I’ve had in a really long time, surrounded by positive people and some of my favorite things – skating and music.”

Clutch Premiere Video For New Version Of “Passive Restraints” Featuring Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe

Clutch have released a new version of their song “Passive Restraints” as part of their “Weathermaker Vault Series.” The updated take on the track features Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe and an official video for it can be found below:

Neil Fallon commented:

“‘Passive Restraints‘ was one of the first Clutch songs I wrote lyrics to. It was a staple of Clutch sets for years, but fell by the wayside as we wrote more and more songs over the years. When we toured with Lamb Of God a few years back, Randy would often ask us to bring it back into rotation. We dragged our feet and finally we caved. And we were glad we did. Last time Clutch played ‘Copenhell‘ Randy joined us on stage to perform the song. We decided to re-record it for the WM Vault series and thought it was only fitting to have Randy join us.”

Blythe added:

“When Clutch asked if I wanted to sing an older song with them during our 2016 tour together, I knew immediately which one I wanted to do- ‘Passive Restraints.’ We performed it in Milwaukee, then again a few years later at ‘Copenhell Fest‘ in Denmark, and I had a blast both times.

I think they were a bit surprised I chose a song released in 1992, but I’ve been a fan for a long time. I’ve followed their development as a band since the early days and have enjoyed every album, but as a musician I know sometimes it’s fun to dust off something you haven’t played in many years and see how it sounds. The song holds up to this day, and I was honored to sing on its re-release.”
