Hear Clutch's Raucous New Song "We Strive for Excellence"

Fall tour with Helmet, Quicksand and JD Pinkus announced

Boogie-metal rogues Clutch haven't officially announced their next full-length yet — it's one of our most anticipated releases of 2022 — but they are one step closer to doing so. Today (June 14th), Neil Fallon and Co. dropped a rollicking new single, the inspirationally titled "We Strive for Excellence," and started accepting RSVPs for new album pre-orders. Blast the song, which follows up April's "Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)," above via its high-energy music video.

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

In addition to the new song and the tease of an forthcoming album, Clutch have also announced a big U.S. headline tour for this fall. Joining them on the 26-date run will be Helmet and Quicksand, who will be rotating the main support slot nightly, and special guest JD Pinkus, better known as bassist of the Butthole Surfers. Ticket are set to go on sale this Friday, June 17th at ClutchOnTour.com. See the full itinerary below.
