A new Clutch album is coming soon, and fans can RSVP here to be the first to get notified of the official details and for early access to all of the album’s exclusive variants and bundles.

“‘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,” Clutch frontman Neil Fallon said.
