Coming up this month are special versions of two Clutch albums.  2013’s Earth Rocker will arrive as a triple deluxe album package June 24 via Weathermaker Music.  In addition to the complete album, the set also includes new songs “Night Hag” and “Scavangers,” a CD audio version of the album performed in concert, appropriately titled Earth Rocker Live, and the “Live In Denver” DVD.

The band’s Robot Hive/Exodus will receive a collector’s edition double vinyl release June 10. The remastered version of the 2005 long player features a re-designed gatefold package.
