Today’s a Good Day for Free Clutch

Yay, free stuff!…But when you think about it, is there really such a thing as a bad day for free Clutch? The groovinest Marylanders have an exclusive non-album track called “Metroliner Special” from the Strange Cousins from the West sessions they’ve made available for free download at their website, I haven’t even had the chance to listen to it yet, but can only imagine it rules, being Clutch and all.

If you didn’t yet, check out The Obelisk‘s interview with guitarist Tim Sult here. Goes great with listening to free goo.

In case you missed the news, Strange Cousins from the West sold 13,000 copies its first week out, which is actually less than 2007’s From Beale Street to Oblivion, which debuted with 15,000. However, because since that time sales in general have continued to suck — plus that whole economy collapsing thing I keep hearing about — the 13,000 was enough to push Clutch into the Billboard Top 40 for the first time in their career at #38!

Congratulations to the band on this new milestone. If only Casey Kasem was still doing Casey’s Top 40 and could introduce the single, “50,000 Unstoppable Watts.” “Here’s a little song about anthrax, ham radio, and liquor…” Awesome.
