Clutch Release Transnational Speedway League On Vinyl

Clutch Release Transnational Speedway League On Vinyl

CLUTCH are delighted to announce they will release Transnational Speedway League: Anthems, Anecdotes and Undeniable Truths as part of their renowned, vinyl-only Clutch Collector's Series on March 29th, 2024.

Originally released in 1993, Transnational Speedway League was the very first recording from CLUTCH and has never been released before on vinyl.

This remastered edition is now available exclusively as a gatefold 12" LP, including a band-signed insert. The vinyl is a stunning 180-gram translucent emerald green, housed in robust, extra-heavy sleeves. Sticklers for high quality detail, even the gatefold jacket is printed on luxe, metalized, polyester paper. This numbered, limited edition is restricted to just 7500 units worldwide.

CLUTCH’s fret wizard, Tim Sult, masterminded this release from A to Z, even working with the album's original graphic designer Dan Winters on a redesign for this release.

"Listening to the album again and going through Dan Winter's treasure trove of old photos was a real trip down memory lane," recollects Sult warmly. "I decided to only include photos that were taken in 1993 during the original Transnational Speedway League photo shoot, including elements of the original artwork."

Ready for a blast from the past? Check out this "A Shogun Named Marcus" live video from a 1994 CLUTCH show in Dallas, Texas, featuring Sepultura's Max Cavelera and Andreas Kisser!

It is no understatement that CLUTCH fans around the world will be extremely keen to get their hands on one of these very special albums, so don't delay if you want to snap one up!

Pre-orders are available now here.
