To celebrate the release of their highly anticipated new album, “Sunrise on Slaughter Beach” this evening, acclaimed US groove rockers, Clutch have announced that they will be livestreaming a very special performance from their upcoming Baltimore show for free on their YouTube channel this Saturday, September 17th, 2022.
The “Live at Hammerjacks” livestream will begin at 10pm EST (that’s 3am BST Sunday for UK fans) and will feature a full setlist that includes their exceptional new album in its entirety. Fans can tune in for free via the band’s official YouTube channel here. Fans who cannot tune in live will also be able to watch the show on demand as it will live on the band’s YouTube channel after its initial broadcast.
Speaking on the imminent release of their brand new album and this very special livestream, Clutch frontman, Neil Fallon shares: “‘Sunrise on Slaughter Beach’ is a weird record. It was, by and large, a studio creation. It reminds me a lot of Jam Room in that regard. Under normal circumstances we may not have entertained the idea of using vibraphones, theremin, or backing vocals (thank you Deborah Bond and Frenchie Davis!). But as they say, necessity is the mother of weirdness.
The YouTube stream of our September 17th performance at Hammerjack’s is a way to say thank you for all the fans who have supported us over the past 31 years, the last two years in particular. Also, it’s a good way to inspire us to get our shit together and learn the new material”.
Clutch’s thirteenth studio album – “Sunrise on Slaughter Beach” – is a slamming summary of everything that makes the band great and another giant leap forward into career longevity. The album will drop tomorrow, Friday, September 16th, via Weathermaker Records. Fans can order now here.
New bangers like “Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)”, “Nosferatu Madre”, “Skeletons On Mars”, “Jackhammer Our Names”, and “Mercy Brown” take their rightful place alongside Clutch classics. “Sunrise on Slaughter Beach” is the natural culmination of what Clutch began as teenagers in the early ‘90s.
Recorded at the The Magpie Cage Recording Studio, Baltimore, MD, the album was produced and mixed by Grammy nominated Tom Dalgety (Ghost, Royal Blood, Pixies) with additional engineering by J Robbins (Jawbreaker, Against Me!, The Sword). The band have released three official singles from the album to date – “Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)”, “We Strive For Excellence” and “Slaughter Beach”.
Clutch have extensive tour plans to support the new album. They kicked off a mammoth 26-date US trek this week with Helmet and Quicksand who will be rotating the main support slot nightly and special guest JD Pinkus. Tickets for the remaining dates are available now here.
