Today is an exciting day for Clutch fans as the group has shared a lyric video for "Gimme the Keys," the first single from their upcoming album Book of Bad Decisions. Listen above.
Distorted guitars, thunderous drums, and Neil Fallon's passionate vocals make this a headbanging-worthy track. The band shared a Facebook post about the song's origin:
The song is about the band's first tour back in 1991, a time where they began to cut their teeth in the live music business, dealt with show cancellations and incidents on the road. One particular show in a shed surrounded by cornfields in Lawrence, Kansas ultimately turned ugly over a missing microphone and accusations brought by drunk and gun-toting security people at the end of a long day. "Gimme the keys they can keep the guarantee | Gimme the keys and get the hell out of dodge" is a reflection of the mood of that night.
Book of Bad Decisions is scheduled for release on September 7, 2018. Pick it up on Amazon.
The band will be performing at a number of music festivals before going out on a European tour in November. For concert tickets and more, check out the Clutch Zumic artist page.
