Clutch reach Crucial Velocity
Clutch have released a lyric video for their track Crucial Velocity. View it below.
It’s the second piece to be taken from upcoming album Earth Rocker, after the title track. Their tenth full-length record is launched on March 19 via their own label, Weathermaker.
Drummer Jean-Paul Gaster says: “We really tried to reign in the jam aspect of the band. We like to improvise a lot, but this album, we wanted stuff mapped out.”
Frontman Neil Fallon adds: “I’m excited about how balls-to-the-wall it is. It’s more cinematic, and that was the approach.
“There are some tips of the hat to rock and roll history in the lyrics that I enjoy singing because they reference the album in a bigger picture. Rocket 88 is considered the first rock and roll song that used distortion. That lyrical reference on Crucial Velocity kind of fuels Earth Rocker as a whole with that back story. It’s American myth – even though it really happened.”
