Clutch share song, confirm new LP, announce tour with Quicksand and Helmet
Clutch released new single "Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)" back in April, and today they put out another new single, "We Strive For Excellence," and promised that a new album is "coming soon." "'We Strive for Excellence' looks back fondly on childhood summers filled with grand plans gone awry, inexplicable bruises, untreated injuries, and of course, the timeless wisdom of Evel Knievel," frontman Neil Fallon says. Check it out below.
They've also announced a tour with the killer support lineup of Helmet and Quicksand, who will be rotating the main support slot nightly, and JD Pinkus of Butthole Surfers is opening all dates too.
NYC gets a show on September 16 at Palladium Times Square. Tickets go on sale Friday (6/17) and there's a BrooklynVegan presale starting Wednesday (6/15) at noon. Check back here Wednesday morning for the password. All dates are listed below.
Helmet, meanwhile, just played Connecticut earlier this month and you can check out pics and review of that show.
