NEIL FALLON GUESTS VOLBEAT'S "DIE TO LIVE"

11/04/2019

“A couple months ago I flew up to Boston to meet up with Volbeat to film the video for their new single, Die to Live. It was a breeze to make, maybe four hours. It’s a catchy straight-ahead rocker of a song and I am flattered to have been asked to participate.” - Neil Fallon

Here is a short behind the scenes video of Volbeat's "Die To Live" video in which Neil participated.

 

Godspeed, Captain Jack.

"We lost a hero today.

Jack Flanagan was super human in every way. For 25 years, Jack guided the band through every conceivable situation with a precision and enthusiasm that will never be matched. It was only with Jack’s guidance and vision that we four young men were able to build a career out of rock and roll. His insight, his passion for the music, his love for all those around him, and his sense of humor, made him someone we couldn’t wait to see again. We were always excited when he would come visit us on the road or, even better, travel with us for a couple nights. Then it’d be like the old days again, when Jack was our road manager... and we’d all be on the bus together riding to the next gig, listening to the The Pogues, and cracking jokes. Jack Flanagan was the best manager, mentor, and friend we could have ever hoped for.

Jack, thank you for making us better than we ever thought we could be.

-----

Over the last twenty plus years, every time Jack sent over something to be posted on the website, his message would regularly be footnoted with something along the lines of, "You can use your discretion… You always nail it." That pretty much sums up our perfectly uncomplicated workflow. On this mournful occasion, I believe the above words from the band appropriately say what needs to be said on their own.

In consideration of the foregoing, I feel inclined to personally close this post with a song that I know meant something to Jack, and one that means a great deal to me as well. If I close my eyes, I can still smell the whiskey and cigarette smoke as Willie's voice just about drowns out the Van Hool engine taking us to the next show.



Until we meet again, my friend.

CLUTCH RELEASE BRAND NEW 2019 STUDIO RECORDING OF "ELECTRIC WORRY"

09/15/2019

Clutch announce the release of "Electric Worry." The single is the third in a series of new studio recordings that comprise the newly launched Weathermaker Vault Series and the first new official music Clutch is making available since the release of their critically acclaimed album, Book Of Bad Decisions.

The new live video uses footage from various 2019 European Summer festivals can be seen at https://youtu.be/mtuVGOnX868

When “Electric Worry” was released in 2007 on the album “From Beale Street To Oblivion” nobody knew that this track would turn into one of Clutch’s most recognizable songs. It is a fan favorite and a staple at live shows. Over the course of time, the song went through changes. What you are listening to here is a brand new studio recording of the 2019 live version of the song without the keyboards and harmonica that are on the 2007 rendition. This is “Electric Worry” in its purest form.
 
“Electric Worry” was mixed by 6X Grammy Award winner and Clutch collaborator, Vance Powell (Wolfmother, The Raconteurs, Arctic Monkeys).
 
"All in all it's just a leaner, meaner song” states vocalist Neil Fallon.“We wanted to put something out there that was representative of what we do these days since it happens to be one of our most popular songs."
 
Clutch has curated their own Spotify playlist “Clutch’s Heavy Rotation” at this location: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3NlZsjNNOoCvwjCv58mcNR
 
On Friday, September 20th, Clutch will embark on a Fall tour of the US with Dropkick Murphys along with metalcore veterans Hatebreed as direct support.

Clutch's Derek Hess 454 Engine Comes to Life!

08/30/2019


Clutch and artist Derek Hess are bringing their wildly popular “454” design to life with the help of the team at Arcane Visionaries. Click here to pre-order.

The band Clutch and artist Derek Hess are bringing their wildly popular “454” design to life with the help of the team at Arcane Visionaries. “Derek Hess has drawn and designed some of my favorite Clutch concert posters,” said Neil Fallon, the band’s lead vocalist. “A few years back, Derek designed a Clutch t-shirt with a ghoulish hand holding a 454 engine and now Derek has turned that image into a limited run of beautifully detailed sculptures, conveniently sized to fit on your desk…or dashboard.” Every detail of the 7 inch, hand-painted, mixed media Polyurethane Resin Figure was meticulously sculpted by Chris Dombos and painted by Elvin Torres. “We did this for the chance to work with the iconic Derek Hess and Clutch, a band I grew up seeing many times in Cleveland,” said Dombos. “Hess’ work transcends art and his connection to music through shows at the Euclid Tavern and his own Strhessfest made it such an honor to work on this piece!”  The limited edition sculpture comes with a certificate of authenticity signed and numbered by artist Derek Hess.



BASED ON THE POPULAR 454 DESIGN - The Hess 454 design comes from the custom collection of the Derek Hess original art and was specifically designed for Clutch. Now available as a 7 inch sculpture.

HAND PAINTED - Every detail of the hand-painted, mixed media Polyurethane Resin Figure was meticulously sculpted by Chris Dombos and painted by Elvin Torres.

CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY - The limited-edition sculpture comes with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity signed by artist Derek Hess.
