Clutch have cemented themselves well in to the rock world with their blues groove tunes. Recently Neil Fallon and company returned and released their eleventh studio album entitled ‘Psychic Warfare’. The album was critically acclaimed by fans and press alike. Clutch are one of those bands which push their own music to new heights without changing their core values too much. Thus allowing the band to go from strength to strength and giving the fans what is needed.
Gearing up for the Australian tour, Metal Wani’s writer William Richards had a chat with CLUTCH founding member & bassist Dan Maines. He discusses upcoming Australian Tour, new album ‘Psychic Warfare’, going independent without the label support, why dependency on label lead to compromise in quality, whether the band tried to go back to roots with classic Clutch sound on ‘Psychic Warfare’, decision to choose the cover art for ‘Psychic Warfare’, the reason behind the stable lineup since the band’s creation and why playing live is something which band loves to do. Dan also throws light on upcoming plans, recent Phil Anselmo ‘white power’ remarks and why Clutch is one the unique rock/metal bands out in the heavy metal universe.
