Clutch announce new album Sunrise On Slaughter Beach

Clutch will release their thirteenth studio album, "Sunrise On Slaughter Beach", on September 16 via Weathermaker Music.

Recorded at the The Magpie Cage Recording Studio in Baltimore, MD, the project was produced and mixed by Grammy-nominated Tom Dalgety (Ghost, Royal Blood) with additional engineering by J Robbins (Against Me!, The Sword).

Clutch first introduced the album with the lead track, “Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)”, and follow-up, “We Strive For Excellence.”

Drummer Jean-Paul Gaster initially thought the record would be an opposite reaction to the polarization and uncertainty of the pandemic years - perhaps something more upbeat, in the vein of 2013's "Earth Rocker."

"The more the songs took shape, the less I saw that kind of an album," says Gaster. "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 will launch the album on a North American tour this fall, with shows beginning September 13 in Toronto, ON.
