The album cover was designed by renowned photographer Dan Winters.
The pre-release campaign featured 4 digital singles, 4 videos and two limited edition 7” picture disc releases.  Now that the full album is available, reviewers around the world are enthusiastic about “Book of Bad Decisions”, the follow up to previous Clutch releases “Psychic Warfare” (2015) and “Earth Rocker” (2013).
“Book of Bad Decisions”, the new Clutch album is done in true Clutch style and tradition. With pensive lyrics backed by abrasive riffs and bad-ass bass, Clutch once again comes through with an album that is hit after hit from top to bottom.”

“The American dream is a goddamn mess right now, but Clutch are on top of it. They’ve been listening, and on Book of Bad Decisions they’re here to slap you on the shoulder and let you know you’re not alone.”
– EMPEROR RHOMBUS – Metal Sucks
“Clutch has given us another strong USA rock album in Book of Bad Decisions. This band is what we need, no candy pop tunes, just increasingly creative and straight-ahead rock tunes without compromising.”
– Adorjan Horvat – staccatofy.com
“Book Of Bad Decisions overall is a kick ass rocker with high highs and absolutely no lows!”
 – Bob Suehs – Rock N Roll Experience
“It’s hard to fault Clutch at this point in their career, their consistent delivery of hard rockin’ tunes is undeniably fun to listen to and with ‘Book of Bad Decisions’, the band continue to excel at what they do best.”
– Andrew Massie – The Rock Pit
