Earlier in the present day, CLUTCH dropped a brand-new single, “We Try For Excellence”. The monitor is accessible digitally from all DSPs.
CLUTCH launched its first new single, “Purple Alert (Boss Metallic Zone)”, again in April to a lot acclaim from followers and critics alike. The monitor has already hit practically 300,000 streams on Spotify alone and the official music video, directed by David Brodsky, has clocked up 340,000 YouTube views.
Early final yr, drummer Jean-Paul Gaster instructed the Chicago-based webzine Metallic Kaoz that he and his CLUTCH bandmates had “written numerous songs” for the follow-up to 2018’s “Guide Of Unhealthy Selections” LP. He stated: “We have been writing now for our new album, and I believe we’re spending extra time than ever within the studio, simply attempting out completely different concepts. And many of the concepts do not ever actually make it to the top; we attempt 10 issues and we hold one.
“I believe we’re much more selective than we had been earlier than as to which concepts we actually determine to give attention to. And I believe it’s as a result of we’ve got a lot extra time. Earlier than, we’d come dwelling for a tour and possibly we’d have three weeks off. So, the primary week, we do not do actually a lot of something — all people goes again dwelling to their households and we relaxation — after which the subsequent two weeks we’d get collectively and we might simply jam actually onerous and get a bunch of concepts, after which on the street and play these concepts, after which come again and do it once more. And that course of would possibly go on for a yr and a half. This has been completely different. That is the primary time the place we have had a lot time at dwelling to work on concepts and by no means actually tried them in a stay setting. So I am undecided the way it’s gonna affect the report. However I believe it is gonna make for a special album — whether or not it is good, unhealthy or in any other case, it is too early to inform. However, for positive, it is a completely different dynamic, and it requires extra of us.
“So typically, when we’ve got new concepts and we put them in entrance of an viewers, you may actually inform instantly — we all know instantly if the music is the suitable tempo, we all know instantly if the riffs are the place they must be, if the refrain is the way in which it must be,” Gaster added. “It is a testing floor. And we do not have that proper now. So, for that motive, I believe we’re being much more cautious about what concepts we actually wanna give attention to, and which of them we predict, ‘You realize what? We have carried out that earlier than. Let’s do one thing a bit of completely different.'”
“Guide Of Unhealthy Selections” was recorded at Sputnik Sound studio in Nashville, Tennessee with producer Vance Powell. The report bought 26,000 copies in America throughout its first week of availability, giving the group its third consecutive Prime 20 album on the Billboard 200.
