Clutch Confirm September Release For New Album 'Sunrise On Slaughter Beach'

Clutch have announced their 13th studio album.

The follow-up to 2018's 'Book Of Bad Decisions' is called 'Sunrise On Slaughter Beach' and will arrive on September 16 via the Maryland band's own Weathermaker Music.

Recorded at The Magpie Cage Recording Studio, Baltimore, in their home state, the LP was produced and mixed by Tom Dalgety with additional engineering by J Robbins.

The previously unveiled singles Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone) and We Strive For Excellence will feature among the record's nine songs. Drummer Jean-Paul Gaster initially thought the tracks would come from an opposite reaction to the polarisation and confusion caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, delivering a bullish, optimistic sound similar to 2013's 'Earth Rocker' LP. However, he explained how that was not the case:

"The more the songs took shape, the less I saw that kind of an album. Something different took shape. The record we ended up with is, in some ways, the most different record we've made in a long time."

Clutch are currently appearing at festivals across Europe, and play shows in Belfast and Dublin later in July. They'll support the new record with a UK and European tour in the autumn, following a run of North American gigs with special guests Helmet and Quicksand. Tickets are on sale now.

'Sunrise On Slaughter Beach' tracklist:

1. Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)
2. Slaughter Beach
3. Mountain Of Bone
4. Nosferatu Madre
5. Mercy Brown
6. We Strive For Excellence
7. Skeletons On Mars
8. Three Golden Horns
9. Jackhammer Our Names
