Clutch release Smoke Banshee as part of the Weathermaker Vault Series along with live broadcasts
Clutch announce the release of the new studio recording of the track “Smoke Banshee”. The single is the seventh in a series of new studio recordings that comprise the Weathermaker Vault Series.
“As 2019 drew to a close, we started digging into songs we hadn’t played in quite some time,” says Neil Fallon. “We had forgotten how much we enjoyed playing Smoke Banshee. The version on Pure Rock Fury is a hybrid of a live and studio performance. So when we made our list of candidates for the Vault Series, it was an easy choice to give Smoke Banshee a full studio recording.”
The single was recently rerecorded and remixed by J. Robbins (Jawbox, Jawbreaker, The Sword, Against Me!) and the track comes in at 3:46. “Smoke Banshee” was originally released in 2001 on Clutch’s album Pure Rock Fury.
Clutch have also been performing live streams on their YouTube channel for the last week, you can watch the last three sessions below:
Ex guitarist in Zenopede, ex vocals for a goth covers band that was hailed as the future of Welsh music, former DJ, promoter and nightclub director. Writer for Gear4Geeks’ Blog4Geeks and owner of Gear4Geeks ltd. First published music critique was Kerrang letter of the Week.
Definitely has never been the future, present or past of Welsh music.
