Clutch premiere their new advance track and music video “Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)” streaming online via YouTube and Spotify below. The clip was directed by David Brodsky (Killswitch Engage, Cannibal Corpse) with the single being produced and mixed by Tom Dalgety (Ghost, Royal Blood). The song will be part of the band’s upcoming thirteenth studio full-length.
Comments the band’s vocalist/guitarist Neil Fallon:
“Early in 2021, I learned the Boss Metal Zone pedal schematic was being presented as “proof” that the Covid-19 vaccine had an electronic component to communicate with 5G cellular networks. It was, of course, nonsense. It sounded like a Philip K. Dick premise. I didn’t want to write a song specific to Covid-19 vaccines, so I went with the Philip K. Dick angle (again). “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” came to mind (replicants, in particular, representing what is real and not real, or is there a difference at all?). The video makes no secret that this is an homage to Philip K. Dick and a future where we have distortion coursing through our veins.”
