“It was a little odd for us to record this record because we’re used to being able to do these songs live. For obvious reasons we weren’t able to do that, but that did give us a bit of flexibility in the studio to try things that perhaps we wouldn’t have otherwise. There’s a lot of instrumentation that [is] atypical of Clutch, like for example vibraphones, theremins, [and] backup vocals. It’s a short record.
“It’s nine songs, maybe 35 minutes thereabouts. We recorded more, but we just thought we wanted to make something that was just right to the point [where] every song kind of represented a different flavor.”
Pre-orders for Sunrise On Slaughter Beach are available here. Clutch will hit the road with Helmet, Quicksand, and JD Pinkus starting next week. Check out those dates below.
