    Clutch have announced a Fall 2022 North American tour with support from Helmet and Quicksand. In addition, they’ve shared the new song “We Strive for Excellence,” with the promise of a new album on the way.

    The new song had been played live on Clutch’s recent tours and finally sees a proper studio release. Snappy riffs connect frontman Neil Fallon’s verses, which are delivered through his imitable drawl. The lyrics are steeped in nostalgia and call back to Fallon’s days of youth.

    “‘We Strive for Excellence’ looks back fondly on childhood summers filled with grand plans gone awry, inexplicable bruises, untreated injuries, and of course, the timeless wisdom of Evel Knievel,” Fallon remarked in a press release.


    The track certainly stokes the hype for the aforementioned North American tour. It features an utterly stacked bill including Helmet, Quicksand, and JD Pinkus.

    The outing kicks off September 13th in Toronto and will remain stateside thereafter, running through an October 16th show in Chicago. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 17th), with a Live Nation pre-sale occurring one day earlier on June 16th (using code DAZZLE). Tickets can be purchase via Ticketmaster.

    Clutch have now offered up two singles in 2022, following “Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone).” The new material preludes the impending release of the band’s as-yet-unnamed new album. Fans can RSVP for early access to the pre-order via Clutch’s merch site.
