Clutch will re-issue one of its classic albums this summer.
The band is scheduled to release its 2004 album, Blast Tyrant, in June. The vinyl re-issue’s exact release date is under consideration. It is part of what has been dubbed “Clutch Collector’s Series.”
The series, curated by Clutch drummer Jean-Paul Gaster, consists of four of the band’s albums, all of which will release through the band’s own Weathermaker Music label. Blast Tyrant is the first of the album’s scheduled for release through the series.
Gaster talked about the forthcoming re-issue of Blast Tyrant in a prepared statement.
“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,” said Gaster. “Chon did an amazing job drawing the Blast Tyrant to look 20 years older and wiser. We selected new colors for the jacket, sleeves, and vinyl to make a completely new package.”
Blast Tyrant‘s re-issue is limited to 5,000 copies. It is re-mastered from the original recording and is presented on a 180-gram colored vinyl. The re-issue is presented on a 2LP gatefold package, which also features an insert signed by the band.
The record’s initial pre-sale — held March 3 — sold out within three hours. Amazon has another pre-sale round open now. Independent retailers will provide copies of the limited edition release. Audiences can look for their nearest independent retailer here.
