NEIL FALLON Says CLUTCH's 'Psychic Warfare' Album Will Be Released 'Third Week Of September'

In a brand new interview conducted earlier today (Friday, June 12) at the U.K.'s Download festival, vocalist Neil Fallon of Maryland rockers CLUTCH revealed that the band's new album, "Psychic Warfare", will be released "the third week of September" via the band's own label, Weathermaker Music. "It's got eleven songs on it, and it's probably faster than [2013's] 'Earth Rocker'," he added (see video below). "We wrote it pretty quickly after 'Earth Rocker', so we were, kind of, still in that headspace."

Songtitles set to appear on "Psychic Warfare" include "X-Ray Visions", "Firebird", "Quick Death In Texas", "Our Lady Of Electric Lights", "Monsters", "Decapitation Blues" and "Son Of Virginia".

The basic tracks and most of the guitars for "Psychic Warfare" were laid down at producer Machine's studio in Dripping Springs, Texas, while the remainder was recorded at CLUTCH's studio in Maryland.

In a recent interview with The Aquarian Weekly, CLUTCH drummer Jean-Paul Gaster stated about "Psychic Warfare": "There are some similarities in regards to 'Earth Rocker', and there are some songs on it that are sort of familiar, but we did some different stuff, too. There's stuff that is a little funkier, and there's other stuff that's a little more bluesy. So there's more diversity, I think."

Asked about the creative process in CLUTCH, Jean-Paul Gaster said: "The creative process really hasn't changed all that much. It's really just the four of us getting together and banging out jams, so to speak. We work on one or two parts at a time, and often we set those parts aside and work on something new. We'll do that for several months until we have a large pool of ideas to pull from. As we get closer to the recording process, we start to try to fix some of these parts and make them into songs. Sometimes the songs get cannibalized as well, like one song will sort of eat the other, in a way. And even then we have a lot of songs to choose from, so sometimes songs that we have been working on for months won't even end up on the record."
