CLUTCH announces the Clutch Collector’s Series, limited edition vinyl reissues of initially four catalogue albums on their own label Weathermaker Music.
‘Blast Tyrant’ is the first release in the series and this one has been curated by drummer Jean-Paul Gaster, who states, “I worked with the album’s original artist Chon Hernandez to create a new look and feel for the Clutch Collector’s Series release of ‘Blast Tyrant’. Chon did an amazing job drawing the Blast Tyrant to look 20 years older and wiser. We selected new colours for the jacket, sleeves, and vinyl to make a completely new package.
The album has been remastered and is manufactured on 180-gram coloured vinyl. The gatefold jacket is printed on metalised polyester paper and embossed with an official Clutch Collector’s Series seal. The double-disc set is sleeved in extra heavy stock paper and includes a numbered insert autographed by the band. The Clutch Collector’s Series release of ‘Blast Tyrant’ is limited to 5000 units worldwide.”
‘Blast Tyrant’ is scheduled to be released in June. The initial presale, exclusively on clutchmerch.com, took place on March 23rd and sold out within 3 hours.
In the UK, pre-orders for the limited edition have gone live tonight at Amazon UK. US fans can buy from Amazon US or look up their closest indie retailer here.
