Frontman, Anders Fridén says of the 20th Anniversary Edition: 

“This record changed our career in a number of ways. Being the 20th anniversary this year, we had to do something massive for the fans. Going back into the studio to re-record some of the original tracks took us right back in time to when we first recorded them. Every detail of the new artwork and visuals was deeply thought out keeping in mind what the Jesterheads would want to see most. This one’s for you. Thank you for 20 years of Clayman.”

The Clayman 20th Anniversary Edition comes entirely remastered by Ted Jensen (PanteraDeftonesGojira) and features all new artwork in a 16-page booklet, a brand-new instrumental medley plus 4 re-recorded versions of fan-favorites such as ‘Only For The Weak’ and ‘Pinball Map’. Re-recorded songs were produced by Howard Benson (My Chemical RomanceMotörhead) and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge (Green DayRob Zombie). The record will be released digitally as well as via CD Digipak and 2LP coloured vinyl packaged in a deluxe trifold that includes an oversized booklet, 11 re-mastered tracks on a 12” record and 5 bonus tracks on a 10” record in a printed sleeve.

They released a new lyric video for the first single Clayman (Re-Recorded). It’s available below:
