Clutch have revealed the name of their forthcoming studio album along with 7 of its tracks.
Speaking on the UK’s TeamRock Radio Metal Hammer Magazine Show, frontman Neil Fallon confirmed that the album will be titled Psychic Warfare and will be out in September.
Fallon told Metal Hammer’s Alexander Milas: “Psychic Warfare is a lyric from the first track, ‘X-Ray Visions’. It’s about a guy holed up in a motel for unexplained reasons, and he’s under great duress, being attacked by psychically-empowered agents of unknown origin. At least, that’s the back story I have in my head.”
Fallon goes on to explain that the concept is influenced by SF author Philip K Dick. “His general philosophy and questions have always crept into my lyrics, because I share an interest in it. On Earth Rocker, ‘Crucial Velocity’ was definitely a Philip K Dick song for me. On this record, ‘X-Ray Visions’ certainly is.”
Clutch recently played a showcase live show in New York at D’Angelico Guitars. New songs played at the showcase included “X-Ray Visions”, “Firebird”, “Quick Death In Texas”, “Our Lady Of Electric Lights”, “Monsters”, “Decapitation Blues” and “Son Of Virginia.”
