Clinic Announce New Autumn 2013 U.s. Tour Dates

Masked Liverpool quartet, Clinic, have announced a return to the U.S. in September to perform at the Boomslang Festival in Lexington, Kentucky, along with a return to New York, plus their first Philadelphia and Washington DC performances since 2010. Clinic released the mind-bending, psychedelic Free Reign in November of 2012, garnering an altogether excitable response from fans and the media. In March of this year, the alternate Daniel Lapotin mix, Free Reign II, was released, giving an entirely different and equally beguiling view of the record. Clinic arrived in North America in support in Aprll, for a sold-out run of shows, including two nights in New York and a festival wrapping Austin Psych Fest performance, that was one for the ages.
 
Produced by the band themselves in their Liverpool studio and mixed with the assistance of Daniel Lapotin (Oneohtrix Point Never), Free Reign saw Clinic taking their sound into new depths; what was taut and manic delved into the dark abscesses of the mind, finding both beauty and horror sometimes commingling. The years have seen Clinic flirt with the mainstream (2003 Grammy nomination) and be cemented into cult firmament alike, without ever really courting either acceptance directly. Their craft, one that has always bloomed in isolation and seemed impervious to the fickle tide of trend or fad, remains both resolutely eclectic and acutely focused.  They are a band's band who have toured with such fans as Radiohead, the Flaming Lips, Arcade Fire and The Shins, over the years, while always drawing a loyal legion when headlining their way across the globe.  Free Reign is hopelessly weird and defiantly beautiful; a raw, DIY album of slyly virtuoso musicality and brave, beguiling song craft.
