CLUTCH RELEASE NEW SINGLE & OMV:
“RED ALERT (BOSS METAL ZONE)”
Forthright US groove rock masters CLUTCH have released a brand new single and video today, titled ‘Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)‘. The track is available digitally from all DSPs and you can watch the official video directed by David Brodsky below!
Neil Fallon explains how ’Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)’ came about:
“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 an homage to Philip K. Dick and a future where we have distortion coursing through our veins.”
Drummer Jean-Paul Gaster adds:
“‘Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)’ is one of the faster cuts on our forthcoming album. It kicks in and hits like a freight train. The intensity of the recording reminds me of our live shows. This song cooks and I can’t wait to play it on tour!”
Clutch have an extensive 2022 worldwide touring schedule, including summer festivals, further headline dates, and a return to Europe.
