One of my favorite bands is CLUTCH - a band I often cite as one of my "Top Five of All-Time." As they continue to support their latest album, PSYCHIC WARFARE, a new video has arrived for "A Quick Death in Texas," and you can check out the appropriately western-themed clip from director David Brodsky below.

“The video for ‘Quick Death In Texas’ was a lot of fun to make” states front man Neil Fallon.  “Dave Brodsky and his crew did a great job and considering that the whole shoot was done in a single day is astonishing.  The cast at Wild West City are a great  group of folks.  In a world of monster corporate theme parks, Wild West City is a rare gem.   (And no…  Wild West City is not in Texas.  It’s in New Jersey in the shadow of the Poconos.)"

“I won’t lie, I had a blast playing cowboy for a day, even if it meant getting repeatedly killed, sometimes by desperados, sometimes by trusted bandmates.   Originally, I was going to be drawn-and-quartered, but we didn’t have the budget for four horses.  So we opted for a traditional one-horse-dragging. And Lucky, the painted roan, did a fine job of delivering justice.”
