Clutch share crab cake recipe in tasty Hot Bottom Feeder video

Clutch have released a video for their brand new track Hot Bottom Feeder.

It’ll feature on the band’s upcoming studio album Book Of Bad Decisions, which is set to arrive on September 7 via their own Weathermaker Music label.

Rather than go for a conventional promo to showcase the track – which pays tribute to the humble crab – the video shows frontman Neil Fallon whipping up a batch of tasty Maryland crab cakes for his bandmates.

The shoot also includes the recipe so you can make them yourself while you listen to the follow-up to 2015’s Psychic Warfare.

Check it out below.

Speaking about the new album, Fallon said: “Naming a record is a hand-wringing exercise – it’s like naming a child. Personally, I was reluctant to name it after a song because that catapults that song into the limelight.

“But thinking about it, Book Of Bad Decisions really grew on me because it implies it that every song is a chapter in this book of bad decisions.”

Clutch previously released the singles Gimme The Keys and How To Shake Hands.
