On December 15th, Clutch will issue a double vinyl package of their latest studio effort "Strange Cousins From the West" through the band's self owned label Weathermaker Music. This vinyl edition will feature two tracks that cannot be found on the CD version of "Strange Cousins..." The first track is the recently recorded "Metroliner Special" and the second is an extended version of the band's latest single & video, "50,000 Unstoppable Watts." The first 4000 pieces of "Strange Cousins..." vinyl will include a coupon for a free digital download of all 12 songs through the band's website, www.pro-rock.com.
Also this Fall, Weathermaker will make available for digital purchase, the former DRT Entertainment catalog which includes "Blast Tyrant" (2004), "Robot Hive/Exodus" (2005), and "From Beale Street to Oblivion" (2007). Weathermaker plans to reissue all three of these in 2010 with a heavy dose of bonus material. Double vinyl packages are in the works for these as well.
For now, look for the digital release of "Robot Hive/Exodus" on November 30th to be followed by "Blast Tyrant" on December 18th. Due to the high amount of digital demand for the band's 2007 single "Electric Worry," Weathermaker has already issued "From Beale Street to Oblivion" on November 7th to coincide with the song's inclusion in the popular video game "Left 4 Dead 2" and it's television commercial.
To end 2009, Clutch will headline shows in Washington DC, Sayerville, NJ, Charlotte, NC, Boston, MA and Albany, NY. These concerts will be filmed by producer and director extraodinaire Agent Ogden and featured on the "Strange Cousins From the West" DVD package to be released in the spring of 2010.
