Since last year, Weathermaker Music has been releasing digital-only CLUTCH covers and re-recorded songs from the band’s catalog. The project is titled “The Weathermaker Vault Series”, and it has been successful so far with the digital release of nine singles.
Weathermaker Music is now releasing a ten-track physical album on CD and 12-inch vinyl as “The Weathermaker Vault Series Vol. I”. The album will contain one previously unreleased track, a Spanish-language cover version of “Algo Ha Cambiado”, a hard-rocking shuffle written by the legendary blues-rock guitarist Norberto Napolitano affectionately known as Pappo of the pioneering Argentinean blues metal band PAPPOS BLUES. The CD and the digital album version will be released on November 27. A 12-inch colored vinyl (Opaque White) LP version will be available in the new year.
“This CLUTCH release is unique in that we chose to record some of our favorite songs by artists that have provided us with inspiration over the years as well as re-record some CLUTCH classics,” states drummer Jean-Paul Gaster. “Hitting the studio this way was great to keep our recording chops up as well as celebrate some music that has meant so much to us as fans and musicians.”
