Clutch release new single and announce fall North American dates

Clutch have released their new single, “We Strive For Excellence”, and announced dates for a fall tour of North America.

“We Strive for Excellence looks back fondly on childhood summers filled with grand plans gone awry, inexplicable bruises, untreated injuries,” explains Neil Fallon, “and of course, the timeless wisdom of Evel Knievel.”

The song follows "Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)" as the second track issued by the Maryland rockers this year, as fans await news about a new studio record that will mark the follow-up to 2018’s “Book Of Bad Decisions.”

In sync with the new music, Clutch have announced dates for a fall North American tour that will begin September 13 in Toronto, ON and feature guests Helmet, Quicksand and JD Pinkus; tickets for the series will go on sale Friday, June 17 from ClutchOnTour.com.

Clutch will begin a European trek in Belfast, UK on June 26.
