Clutch expand vinyl reissue series with Robot Hive / Exodus album

Clutch have expanded their Collector's Series vinyl reissue series with the re-release of their 2005 album, “Robot Hive/Exodus.”

Curated by bassist Dan Maines, the reissue 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 metallized 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.

"I’m very excited for the Clutch Collector’s Series release of ‘Robot Hive/Exodus’,” says Maines. “With the additional 7" 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!"

Clutch launched the Collector’s Series last year with a vinyl reissue of their 2004 classic, “Blast Tyrant”, which was curated by drummer Jean-Paul Gaster.

Clutch recently released brand new track, "Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)", which was an homage to Sci-Fi author, Philip K. Dick.

Following the recent completion of a spring North American tour, the Maryland band will begin a summer run across Europe at the Release Athens 2022 festival in Kallithea, Greece on July 19.
