Dunsmuir, the supergroup led by Clutch frontman Neil Fallon and ex Black Sabbath drummer Vinny Appice, will launch their self-titled debut album on July 22.

They’re joined by The Company Band guitarist Dave Bone and Fu Manchu bassist Brad Davis on the work, which is to see a general release via iTunes accompanied by a vinyl pressing run of just 1000 copies.

The album follows the launch of three vinyl singles – Our Only Master, Deceived and …And Madness – with a fourth due tomorrow (June 15) in a run of just 500.

Fallon describes Dunsmuir as “serious metal” and adds: “The concept behind the lyrics is 10 tales from the survivors of a shipwreck. What had been a scientific expedition deteriorates into a struggle to survive both the natural and supernatural world.”

Appice says the band sound like “rock that rocks” while Bone calls it “an intense collaboration of four minds – all set on ‘destroy.’”

The vinyl album will come with a signed lithograph of the sleeve artwork and it’s available for pre-order now.
