Clutch Release Video for How to Shake Hands

Video released for the second single from upcoming album Book of Bad Decisions.


Clutch have released the video for How to Shake hands, the second single from the upcoming album Book of Bad Decisions. Originally the band had planned to cover Ry Cooder‘s John Lee Hooker for President but felt that they couldn’t do the song justice, instead releasing a song in a similar style.  The single is being released as a limited 7″ available through Indy Merch and is backed with Gimme the Keys:

Gimme The Keys” on the other hand is a song 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 released on September 7th and will tour the UK in December.
