Acclaimed US groove rockers Clutch today share spirited new single, “Slaughter Beach”. Chockfull of bluesy rock swagger, the brand new track is available from all streaming services now.
Discussing the track, frontman Neil Fallon confides, “The lyrics for Slaughter Beach were inspired by a late night walk along the southern Delaware Bay. Odd things happen there.”
The track is included on Clutch‘s upcoming thirteenth studio album – Sunrise On Slaughter Beach – a slamming summary of everything that makes the band great and another giant leap forward into career longevity. Set for worldwide release on September 16th via Weathermaker, fans can pre-order now here.
New bangers like “Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone),” “Nosferatu Madre,” “Skeletons On Mars,” “Jackhammer Our Names,” and “Mercy Brown” take their rightful place alongside Clutch classics. Sunrise On Slaughter Beach is the natural culmination of what Clutch began as teenagers in the early ‘90s.
Recorded at the The Magpie Cage Recording Studio, Baltimore, MD, the album was produced and mixed by Grammy nominated Tom Dalgety(Ghost, Royal Blood, Pixies) with additional engineering by J Robbins(Jawbreaker, Against Me!, The Sword).
|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 have extensive tour plans to support the new album, including a 26-date US headline run this Autumn (with Helmet, Quicksand, and JD Pinkus), summer festivals with select off-dates, and a headline return across Europe which includes a 2-leg visit to the UK in November and December.
