BLOODCLOT, the band led by CRO-MAGS frontman John Joseph, has inked a deal with Metal Blade Records. Joining Joseph in BLOODCLOT's current lineup are Todd Youth (DANZIG) on guitar, Joey Castillo (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE) on drums and Phil Caivano (MONSTER MAGNET) on bass.

A different lineup of BLOODCLOT — then called BLOODCLOT! — released an album called "Burn Babylon Burn" in 2008. At that time, the group featured Joseph alongside BIOHAZARD drummer Danny Schuler, former SPUDMONSTERS/BIOHAZARD guitarist Scott Roberts, ex-PRO-PAIN guitarist Eric Klinger, and former MERAUDER bassist Rick Lopez.

Joseph previously described BLOODCLOT's sound this way: "I don't want to lock it into any categories. There are hardcore and metal qualities, punk rock qualities, even some fusion in certain parts. It's just heavy music with a heavy message."

Regarding the band’s name, Joseph said. "In Jamaican, the word 'bloodclot' is a curse that describes everything being fucked up. It's a 'bloodclot' situation, what's happening on the planet, who's running things through deception and lies, and we need to fix it."
