CLUTCH

CLUTCH announced the release of a new studio recording of the track ‘Spacegrass’. The single is the fifth in a series of new studio recordings that comprise the Weathermaker Vault Series. ‘Spacegrass’ was first released on CLUTCH’s self-titled album in 1995 and it stands as one the key tracks in CLUTCH’s catalogue of songs.

“The lyrics got their start originally from something Tim wrote,” says Neil Fallon. “It involved a Dodge Swinger and Jesus. I added some words and one of them was ‘AstroTurf,’ but that had one too many syllables. So I changed it to ‘Spacegrass’ – and the rest is history.”

CLUTCH:
Neil Fallon – Vocals/Guitar
Tim Sult – Guitar
Dan Maines – Bass
Jean-Paul Gaster – Drums/Percussion


WHITECHAPEL

Last March, Whitechapel released their seventh full-length, The Valley and kicked off a world tour. Today, the band has released three live videos, featuring tracks from The Valley. Check out “Forgiveness Is Weakness”, “Brimstone”, and “When a Demon Defiles a Witch” below.

CHESTER BENNINGTON

Chester Bennington’s pre-Linkin Park band Grey Daze have announced ‘Amends’, a full album of previously unheard music. To be released on 10th April, ‘Amends’ is the origin story of one of modern rock’s most recognizable voices and a full circle moment among friends.
The album is the fulfillment of a planned Grey Daze reunion that Chester announced prior to his untimely passing.
Speaking of the video concept, Grey Daze founder and drummer Sean Dowdell told MetalTalk “This is loosely based on a true story from when Chester was 15-years-old. He was being bullied at school and one day suffered a real beating. That was the day I assumed a role as protector and almost older brother figure to Chester that has lasted since, even after his passing.”
