Clutch Officially Stream New Song “How To Shake Hands”, Release 7″ For It


Clutch have now launched an official stream of their new song “How To Shake Hands“. In addition to being made available digitally, a limited number of 7” picture discs featuring the the song and the band’s previously released new single “Gimmie The Keys” have been released today, June 22nd, as well. Amazon will have that release in stock on July 06th.

A press release offered some more insight into the newly released “How To Shake Hands“, offering:

Clutch’s song ‘How to Shake Hands‘ traces its lineage back to Ry Cooder and John Lee Hooker via the song ‘John Lee Hooker for President‘. In that song Ry Cooder impersonates JLH giving a stump speech on what will happen when he becomes President. Clutch’s original idea of covering the Ry Cooder song was soon abandoned as Neil Fallon said he couldn’t do the song justice. Instead, Neil put his own lyrics in the style of Ry Cooder/JLH to a new Clutch song which ended up becoming the fast-paced ‘How to Shake Hands‘.”

Both of the tracks featured on the 7″ appear on Clutch‘s new album “Book Of Bad Decisions“, which will be in stores on September 07th. Earlier this week the band announced the band announced this tour with Sevendust and Tyler Bryant And The Shakedown.
