Clutch performed an exclusive intimate show debuting music from their upcoming new release Psychic Warfare.
Recently,Â ClutchÂ have announced that their 11thÂ studio albumÂ Psychic Warfare will be due out this fall via the band’s very own record label Weathermaker Music. Â The upcoming release is the follow up to their 2013 record Earth Rocker.
Recently vocalist Neil Fallon spoke to Alexander Milas on TeamRock Radio’s Metal Hammer Magazine Show in regard to the album title : “‘Psychic warfare’ is a lyric from the first track, “X-Ray Visions.” It’s about a guy holed up in a motel for unexplained reasons, and he’s under great duress, being attacked by psychically-empowered agents of unknown origin. At least, that’s the back story I have in my head.”
The band debuted some of their latest music at a private showcase gig at D’Angelico Guitar Showroom. Â This special event was held on the eve of their performance at Central Park Summerstage with fellow rockers Mastodon.
In between songs Neil Fallon joked with the audience and provided back stories to the new songs. He mentioned that “Quick Death In Texas” was written while the band was recording. Â As he mentioned to teamrock “I was staying in a kind of unique, maybe 100-year-old property, by myself. I got spooked out because I come from the east coast and the suburbs and I was out in the woods. That was the environment that brought out “Quick Death In Texas” â€“ and the locals.”
The setlist at the showcase was as follows:”Â X-Ray Visions,” “Firebird,” “Quick Death In Texas,” “Our Lady Of Electric Lights,” ” Monsters,” “Decapitation Blues,” and “Son Of Virginia.”
