Clutch are back with a new song.

Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone) will appear on the Maryland groove-rock masters' forthcoming follow-up to 2018's 'Book Of Bad Decisions'.

Jammed with thundering, funky grooves and bassy chugs, the track arrives with a David Brodsky-directed video, which pays homage to classic sci-fi films Blade Runner and the Aliens franchise. The band have also shared a Sci-Fidelity Spotify playlist to coincide with the release. Discussing how the track came about, frontman Neil Fallon said:

"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."

"Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone) is one of the faster cuts on our forthcoming album," added drummer Jean-Paul Gaster. 

"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!"
