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.”

Theory Of A Deadman Team Up With Zero 9:36 For New Version Of “Strangers”

Theory Of A Deadman have released a new version of their song “Strangers.” The updated take on the track features Zero 9:36 and it can be streamed below:

Tyler Connolly commented:

“Man, I’ve been excited for a while now for people to hear this song! The ‘Strangers’ remix is heavier and more driving and with Zero 9:36 featured, it adds a new perspective to it that I think brings the song to another level.”

Zero 9:36 added:

“I’ve been a fan of Theory for a while now and when the opportunity to collaborate with them came up, it was a no-brainer. Getting to take ‘Strangers’, which is already a cool alternative rock song, and bring some heaviness to it was a lot of fun.”

The original version of “Strangers” is from Theory Of A Deadman’s latest album “Say Nothing.”

Spiritbox Premiere Video For “Holy Roller” Remix Featuring Crystal Lake’s Ryo Kinoshita

Spiritbox have premiered a new video for a remix of their song “Holy Roller.“ This version of the track features Crystal Lake‘s Ryo Kinoshita and it will appear on a 7″ single along with the original version. That effort will be released on December 4.

Courtney LaPlante commented:

“Ryo is everything I strive to be in a vocalist and entertainer, so it is truly an honor to hear him performing on this track. He has been supportive of ‘Holy Roller’ from the beginning, so it’s wonderful to have him be our first ever guest vocalist. I think when people hear his verse his vocal gymnastics will blow their minds.”

Kinoshita added:

“It’s an honor to be a part of one of my favorite songs of 2020. It was so much fun to sing ‘Holy Roller’. I really really liked the concept of the song and video, so when it was released, literally every night before I went to bed I imagined how I would sing if I did some parts of the song. I love their diversity. Courtney can be anything. She screams like a demon and whispers like an angel. I can’t wait to see how people will react to this version.”

Slipknot, Guns N’ Roses, Def Leppard, Etc. Members Guest On New Version Of Sixx:A.M.’s “Maybe It’s Time”

Sixx:A.M. have released a new version of their song “Maybe It’s Time.” The updated version of the track features the following guests: Slash (Guns N’ Roses), Joe Elliott (Def Leppard), Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour), Ivan Moody (Five Finger Death Punch), Tommy Vext (Bad Wolves), Awolnation, and Brantley Gilbert. All participating artists will be donating their royalties to the Global Recovery Initiatives Foundation. On top of that, Better Noise Music are also planning to match the donation.

Sixx:A.M.’s Nikki Sixx (also of Mötley Crüe) said the following:

“I am proud to bring together these artists to help raise funds for the Global Recovery Initiative Foundation. The opioid epidemic did not go away when the pandemic came along. Just the opposite…those in early recovery became even more at risk than before so it’s more important now than ever to raise awareness and support them. I really believe that united we can make a difference and save lives.”

A few of the guests also commented:

Def Leppard‘s Joe Elliot:

“So, Nikki rang me to see if I’d lend a vocal to ‘Maybe It’s Time.’ After hearing the track for the first time in a while, I was reminded how good it is so I was in! It felt right, all around, giving back to the much-needed Global Recovery Initiative.”

Bad Wolves‘ Tommy Vext:

“Alcoholism and drug addiction are family diseases. They’re the only diseases that everyone is mad at and hurt if you have it. People don’t get upset at you if you get cancer. It’s because with addiction, it affects everyone whose life touches the sufferer.”

Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor:

“It’s a real issue… It’s affecting young people more and more every year, so it’s very, very important for all of us to pitch in and do our part, especially some of us who have lived through it…those of us who have survived… it’s the least I can do.”

The new version of “Maybe It’s Time” will be included on the soundtrack to the new film “Sno Babies,” which will be available on on-demand and digital platforms on September 29.
