Tim Sult of the mighty Clutch took a moment shortly after leaving their main stage set at Download Festival 2019 to talk to Adam Hayward.
In reflecting back on their last album, “The Book of Bad Decisions” with respect to Neil Fallon’s lyrical content:
“I am as interested in what Neil does as our fans. From that point of view, I get to hear the songs in two ways, first instrumental and then with his vocals. I have the same feeling as an average Clutch fan does.”
He further added:
“The book of bad decisions was completely different, we threw a few ideas around for a couple of years, reducing it down to 15 songs, no so much pre-production but did it from our rehearsal space. Previous albums, to us, were more micro-managed, this felt like our self-titled album”.
Discussing the upcoming “Weathermaker Vault Series”:
“We’ve recorded two more covers and a couple of older Clutch songs; they’ve taken on a new life since playing them live. At this point, we’re on about going back into the studio this September and recording some more covers, some more Clutch songs”.
On whether there could be a part two, potentially to this new album:
“The whole Weathermaker vault series we can do what we want. It’s artistically free, we can just keep adding to it”.
