Clutch premiere new song

2018-05-20 by insomniac15 STAFF | 25 Comments
Clutch have premiered 'Gimme the Keys', the first song off their upcoming Book of Bad Decisions LP, due out sometime in September. Comparing the album with its predecessor Psychic Warfare, front man Neil Fallon commented in a recent interview:

"I think it's more stripped down in some regards. There's more of a wider range of tempos. There's more songs; there's 15 of 'em on there. At this point, I was so close to it for so long, I kind of can't see the forest for the trees; I have to take a step back to understand what this record is, if that makes any sense."

Regarding the LP's title, he also mentioned it came "from a song on the album, which, to me, it's a pretty dark song. I was trying to write lyrics that were kind of like a Cormac McCarthy novel in about three and a half minutes". Plus, "anyone in their life does bad decisions, and you can look back and see the repercussions of that spread out like a pebble thrown into a pool. We've made bad decisions; we've also made really good ones. Thankfully, all of us are surrounded by good people that ride our wheelhouse when we get a little tipsy."

Oooo, more Clutch, you say? I am interested in this.

Still would like to check out their older albums. Have only really listened to Earth and Warfare.

Is there something up with the production on this? I know they recorded it "live" but it sounds super muddy at times.

Man. Clutch is one of my favorite bands but I really wish they would do more to change up their sound. They've put out basically the same album like 4 times in a row at this point.

Weeping I noticed the door guy leaving your Mom's house with a sheepish grin and wrinkled hand.

Good to see you still around.
