Clutch will release a limited-edition vinyl box set as part of Record Store Day 2020 on April 18.

"The Obelisk" will feature all of Clutch’s Weathermaker Music vinyl releases across six double LP's, three 12" LPs, and three 12" picture discs in a package that contains a turntable mat and a square, artist signed lithograph.

The six double-LP sets include 2004’s “Blast Tyrant”, 2005’s “Robot Hive/Exodus”, 2007’s “From Beale Street To Oblivion”, 2008’s “Full Fathom Five”, 2009’s “Strange Cousins From The West” and 2018’s “Book Of Bad Decisions”; the individual 12” vinyl releases are 2013’s “Earth Rocker”, 2015’s “Psychic Warfare” and the 2015 compilation “La Curandera”; and, the picture discs feature 1999’s “Jam Room”, 2002’s “Live At The Googolplex” and the 2005 compilation “Pitchfork & Lost Needles.”

“The Obelisk” will be limited to 1,000 copies worldwide.

Set for April 18, the annual Record Store Day event is held the third Saturday of every April and is a celebration of the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally.

This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, djs spinning records and on and on.

The 2020 Record Store Day Ambassador is Brandi Carlile; full event details are available at

Clutch will play a pair of Download Festivals in Australia later this month before teaming up with Volbeat for a spring US tour in April.
