Clutch Officially Premiere New Song “How To Shake Hands”

Clutch premiere their new track “How To Shake Hands“ streaming below. The band’s press release offers:

“Clutch’s song ‘How to Shake Hands‘ traces its lineage back to Ry Cooder and John Lee Hooker via the song ‘John Lee Hooker for President‘. In that song Ry Cooder impersonates JLH giving a stump speech on what will happen when he becomes President. Clutch’s original idea of covering the Ry Cooder song was soon abandoned as Neil Fallon said he couldn’t do the song justice. Instead, Neil put his own lyrics in the style of Ry Cooder/JLH to a new Clutch song which ended up becoming the fast-paced ‘How to Shake Hands‘.”

Tombs announces tour dates supporting Bloodbath, headlining dates with Barishi

– March 13th, 2018 –

After releasing their fourth full-length, The Grand Annihilation, last year, Tombs is now heading back out on the road again in support of it, this time joining Bloodbath on select dates, before headlining a few shows with Barishi. See below for all upcoming dates!

Tombs tour dates
May 25 – New Brunswick, NJ – Court Tavern
May 26 – Boston, MA – Brighton Music Hall *
May 27 – New York, NY – Irving Plaza *
May 28 – Toronto, ON – Phoenix Concert Theater *
May 29 – Montreal, QC – Corona *
May 30 – Quebec City, QC – L’Anti Bar & Spectacles +
May 31 – Brattleboro, VT – The Stone Church +
June 1 – Portland, ME – Geno’s Rock Club +
*=supporting Bloodbath
+=with Barishi

While every track on The Grand Annihilation stands separate from those around it, it is still a cohesive collection, and at no point do the stylistic twists and turns undermine its coherence. The blasting, scathing yet melodic black metal savagery of opener “Black Sun Horizon” and “Way Of The Storm” are very much built to destroy, while wielding a poignancy that is undeniable – both of which stand in strong contrast to the uncomfortable post-punk squall of “Underneath” that showcases front-man Mike Hill’s Nick Cave/Ian Curtis-esque singing voice, while the likes of the throbbing “Saturnalian” and unnerving tribal thunder of “Walk With Me In Nightmares” stand in categories all of their own.
