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.

CLUTCH‘s thirteenth studio album, Sunrise On Slaughter Beach, was released in September 2022 and is a slamming summary of everything that makes the band great. The band have released three official singles – “Red Alert (Boss Metal Zone)“, “We Strive For Excellence” and “Slaughter Beach“. Sunrise On Slaughter Beach is the natural culmination of what CLUTCH began as teenagers in the early ‘90s. It’s a new chapter in an ever-unfolding story which means as much to the fans as it does to the band.

Clutch shares more in common with The Grateful Dead, Rush, and the Allman Brothers than their heavy riffs and heady twists-of-phrase might suggest. Because like those bands, the supporters who adore Clutch are there for the experience, community, and authentic connection. To love Clutch is to feel a sense of ownership, membership, and belonging.

Seneca Valley High School classmates Neil Fallon (vocals), Tim Sult (guitar), Dan Maines (bass), and Jean-Paul Gaster (drums) share an unshakeable musical and personal bond now three decades strong. Shaped by the same region which birthed Bad Brains, Minor Threat, and Rites Of Spring, Clutch crafts hyper-literate and libertine jams informed by hardcore fury and fuzzy, athletic, stoner rock.

“There’s no question that Clutch etched themselves a name in the pantheon of great rock bands,” Lambgoat wrote in 2004. Classic Rock counted 2013’s Earth Rocker and 2015’s Psychic Warfare among the 50 Best Rock Albums of the 2010s. Rolling Stone described 2018’s Book of Bad Decisions as “bathed in the grit and liberal fuzz tone that have made their live shows legendary.” The global accolades across their acclaimed catalogue are numerous.

Live shows over the years include tours with Slayer and System Of A Down and more recent co-headlining treks with Dropkick Murphys, Killswitch Engage, and Mastodon. Like Slayer or Iron Maiden, Clutch outlasted rock bands anchored to “hit songs” and the pressure of replicating them. The foursome from Germantown, Maryland, isn’t bound by trends. Across thirteen studio albums and assorted releases since 1991, they’ve earned a reputation as one of the best around.
