Been hangin’ out for some new tunes from groove-rockers Clutch? The Maryland band haven’t delivered a new record since Book Of Bad Decisions back in 2018. However, today they bring you a brand new song titled ‘Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)‘ with a memo to “stay tuned for more new music from Clutch in 2022.”
Coupled with a futuristic music video, ‘Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)‘ takes on funky grooves and bassy chugs that’ll give you hope for more new music this year, and heck – hopefully a new record finally too.
On the new single, vocalist Neil Fallon says:
“Early in 2021, I learned the Boss Metal Zone pedal schematic was being presented as ‘proof’ that the Covid-19 vaccine had an electronic component to communicate with 5G cellular networks. It was, of course, nonsense. It sounded like a Philip K. Dick premise. I didn’t want to write a song specific to Covid-19 vaccines, so I went with the Philip K. Dick angle (again). ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’ came to mind (replicants, in particular, representing what is real and not real, or is there a difference at all?). The video makes no secret that this is a homage to Philip K. Dick and a future where we have distortion coursing through our veins.”
