Groove rock masters CLUTCH have announced the second release of their Collector’s Series vinyl reissues today. Getting the reimagined treatment this time is the band’s 2005 classic ‘Robot Hive/Exodus’, curated by band bassist, Dan Maines. The vinyl release is remastered and manufactured on 180-gram coloured vinyl, stored in extra heavy sleeves and limited to only 7,500 units worldwide. The gatefold jacket is printed on metallised polyester paper, and each album includes a numbered insert autographed by the band. As an extra special element this 2xLP includes a 7″ with two tracks: “What Would A Wookie Do?” and “Bottoms Up, Socrates“. These two songs were originally among the 16 songs written and recorded for ‘Robot Hive/Exodus‘ back in 2005 but were left off the final album for time purposes. Pre-order now HERE.
Speaking on this very special deluxe release, Dan Maines shares, “I’m very excited for the Clutch Collector’s Series release of Robot Hive/Exodus. With the additional 7 inch you can now hear the complete recording session remastered. We consistently play a number of these songs in our live sets every night, and have even dusted off a couple more for our current tour!”
The first album in this new series was ‘Blast Tyrant‘ curated by Jean-Paul Gaster. The ‘Robot Hive/Exodus‘ artwork is in the vein of the original ‘Blast Tyrant‘ yet strikingly different.
CLUTCH recently released brand new track, ‘Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)’ which was an homage to Sci-Fi author, Philip K. Dick. The track and its accompanying video have clocked up 585k streams since release.
Long time fans of sci-fi icon Philip K. Dick, Clutch have also curated a fun ‘inspired by’ Sci-Fidelity playlist on Spotify HERE, to coincide with the release of the single.
Clutch have just wrapped up a 2-leg trek across North America and have an extensive 2022 worldwide touring schedule, including summer festivals, further headline dates, and a return to Europe. The 10 UK headline shows are in 2 legs, across November and December. For the most up to date list of shows and to buy tickets, click HERE.
