Hear it here: The Cliks’ new album, Dirty King

Xtra.ca has an exclusive premiere

Two years after the release of their breakthrough album Snakehouse, the Cliks are set to release their new album next week.

After 400 days on the road touring Snakehouse, the band was primed for new material, but they were also exhausted, says lead singer Lucas Silveira. He says he wrote the album “coming from a really lonely place.”

“Dirty King is more about having risen out of the ashes, being on your feet, but constantly having to dodge people trying to knock you down,” he says.

Producer Sylvia Massy (best known for her work with Tool and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers) helped guide the band into new sonic territory.
