"In Walks Barbarella" is two stories woven into one. An adult man talks to a boy, maybe his son, about events that occurred 20 years ago. Now add visions of Jane Fonda as Barbarella, ray guns, and tractor beams. It's one of "Book Of Bad Decisions"' signature songs and it includes a horn section that truly turns this song into weaponized funk.

Each of the single releases from "Book Of Bad Decisions" is accompanied by a Spotify playlist put together by one of the band members. This time around, drummer Jean-Paul Gaster is responsible for the playlist. "The playlist contains funk songs," he says. "I took some of my favorite songs, stuff that was recorded all the way back from the '50s into the '60s and '70s. These are some songs that I find a lot of inspiration from, both in the drumming and the way that the songs are put together."

Singer Neil Fallon previously explained that the "Book Of Bad Decisions" title came "from a song on the album, which, to me, it's a pretty dark song. I was trying to write lyrics that were kind of like a Cormac McCarthy novel in about three and a half minutes," he said. "But anyone in their life does bad decisions, and you can look back and see the repercussions of that spread out like a pebble thrown into a pool. We've made bad decisions; we've also made really good ones. Thankfully, all of us are surrounded by good people that ride our wheelhouse when we get a little tipsy."

CLUTCH has announced a fall 2018 "Book Of Bad Decisions Tour" with support from SEVENDUST and TYLER BRYANT & THE SHAKEDOWN.
