Clinic Announce New Album 'Free Reign' Out November 12th 2012

Clinic are set to release their seventh album, Free Reign, on 12th November. Produced by the band themselves in their hometown of Liverpool and mixed with the assistance of Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never), Free Reign is an extremely apt title for a particularly bold and assured new transmission from planet Clinic.

In the fifteen years since the release of the irrepressible band's debut EP, Ade Blackburn and co. have essentially delivered an exquisite masterclass in fearless singularity. The junkshop-trawling analogue fetishism of the warm, smoky instrumentation that gives their songs such a vividly placeable sense of mood and atmosphere; the surrealist bent of Blackburn's lyrics - so steeped in their own personal mythology - and the band's over-riding commitment to never straying into the realm of the obvious or complacent are all long-standing elements of Clinic's work that are furthered, perfected even, on Free Reign.

Free Reign neither turns its back on the direction of its predecessor, Bubblegum, nor seeks to revisit it verbatim, instead incorporating the simple, childlike melodies and spacious nature of the former whilst being at the same time as powerful, visceral and rhythmically charged as anything the band have ever recorded.

Free Reign will not only be available on the usual formats - CD (WIGCD295O), LP (WIGLP295P) and digital download (WIG295D) - but also on limited edition UFO format, in the form of an exclusive, glow-in-the-dark, cosmic flying disc which comes with the album download code (ie, a pretty nifty Frisbee).

The tracklisting for Free Reign is as follows:

1. Misty 6. For the Season

2. See Saw 7. King Kong

3. Seamless Boogie Woogie BBC2 10pm (rpt) 8. You

4. Cosmic Radiation 9. Sun and the Moon

5. Miss You
