MUSIC NEWS: Clutch Launch ‘Clutch Collector’s Series’ & Announce ‘Blast Tyrant’ Vinyl Reissue
Clutch have announced a limited-edition vinyl reissue of their album Blast Tyrant. The reissue is part of their Clutch Collector’s Series, which will see them release four albums from their back catalogue on vinyl via their own label Weathermaker Music.
The Blast Tyrant reissue is the first in the series and was curated by Clutch drummer Jean-Paul Gaster, who comments: “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.”
Scheduled for release in June, there are only 5000 units of the reissue available. The release has been remastered and manufactured onto 180-gram coloured vinyl, and comes with a gatefold jacket that has been printed on metalised polyester paper embossed with the official series seal. The double-disc set will also include a numbered insert autographed by the band.
