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‘.”

Jungle Rot Premiere New Music Video “Fearmonger” – Destruction’s Schmier Guests

Jungle Rot‘s tenth studio album will be out in stores on July 20th via Victory Records. The self-titled effort was recorded this past January at Belle City Sound with engineer Chris Djuricic. Dan Swanö (Dark Funeral, Marduk) helmed the mixing and mastering duties. Below you can stream a video for the new single, “Fearmonger“, which features a guest turn from Destruction’s Marcel “Schmier” Schirmer.

Comments Jungle Rot vocalist/guitarist Dave Matrise of that:

“We covered the Destruction classic ‘Invincible Force’ some years ago and Schmier told me ours is his favorite Destruction cover he has ever heard from any band. Years later we toured together and right away Schmier approached me to start singing the song with him in concert. His trademark style and my vocals worked so well together that when I began writing this new record, the idea immediately came up to have him as a guest vocalist. He loved it and was honored to be a part of it. That’s how we created ‘Fearmonger.’”
