Video: Clutch Play New Song Live, “Strive for Excellence”


Clutch performed a new song reportedly called “Strive for Excellence” at the Alaska State Fair in Palmer, AK this past Sunday, September 5, their first live performance in front of an audience since December 31, 2019.

Two fan-filmed clips of that song have surfaced online. Both are under a minute in length, but that’s plenty of time to get a feel for the new tune… which, unsurprisingly, sounds just like Clutch!

I actually respect the fact that neither of the two folks who filmed these clips bothered to catch the whole song. Just a clip to tease the interwebs and then back to ROCKING THE FUCK OUT instead of staring at a band through a phone. You can watch ’em both below.
