•♠•   “Weathermaker Music has some new music coming out today.” says Clutch drummer Jean~Paul Gaster. “The record is called Spy Machines, the band is called Spy Machines, and I’m proud to say that I’m part of it. Mark Stanley plays guitar and he wrote all the songs, Henry Upton from Lionize is on bass, Mike Dillon is on vibraphone and percussion and I play the drums. The record was recorded last year and it certainly does not sound like Clutch. I’m very proud of it.”
•♠•   Musically Spy Machines is rooted in Psychedelic Rock, Prog, and Funk, and it has some heavy undertones.
•♠•   Spy Machines’ self~titled album is a digital~only recording, for now. It was preceded by two single releases. On March 13th, the band was introduced via their interpretation of the classic Queen composition “Another One Bites The Dust,” and on March 27th, the single “Cult of Ecstasy” was released.
