Clutch Post New Single Passive Restraints Featuring Lamb Of God's Randy Blythe

Friday, 13 November 2020 Written by Jon Stickler

Clutch have shared a new version of Passive Restraints.

The original appeared as the title track of the band's 1992 EP, while the charged-up rework boasts additional vocals from Lamb Of God's Randy Blythe and marks the latest contribution to the Maryland rockers' Weathermaker Vault Series. 

Head below for the song's accompanying David Brodsky-directed performance video. Clutch singer Neil Fallon said:

"Passive Restraints was one of the first Clutch songs I wrote lyrics to. It was a staple of Clutch sets for years but fell by the wayside as we wrote more and more songs over the years. When we toured with Lamb of God a few years back, Randy would often ask us to bring it back into rotation. We dragged our feet, and finally, we caved. And we were glad we did. The last time Clutch played Copenhell, Randy joined us on stage to perform the song. We decided to re-record it for the WM Vault Series and thought it was only fitting to have Randy join us."

Blythe added: "When Clutch asked if I wanted to sing an older song with them during our 2016 tour together, I knew immediately which one I wanted to do. We performed it in Milwaukee, then again a few years later at Copenhell Fest in Denmark, and I had a blast both times. I think they were a bit surprised I chose a song released in 1992, but I've been a fan for a long time. I've followed their development as a band since the early days and have enjoyed every album, but as a musician, I know sometimes it's fun to dust off something you haven't played in many years and see how it sounds. The song holds up to this day, and I was honoured to sing on its re-release."

The band will release 'WeatherMaker Vault Series Vol. I' on November 27. In 2021, they'll headline the main stage at Ramblin' Man Fair, topping the bill on the Friday with a "Who Wants To Rock" set, while Sunday will see them hit the Blues Stage for a "Sound Attack" set. They've also rescheduled shows in Dublin, Belfast and Glasgow to July in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Clutch Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Tue July 20 2021 - BELFAST Limelight
Wed July 21 2021 - DUBLIN Academy
Thu July 22 2021 - GLASGOW O2 Academy Glasgow
