Despite themselves, The Cliks couldn’t help but make a new record that made order and sense out of tumult and turbulence. The Toronto band had a whirlwind past two years since the release of their debut album, "Snakehouse" -- and there’s no sign that they’ll be slowing down anytime soon.

Holed up this past fall at Radio Star Studios in Weed, California,  the band put their emotions, thoughts and talents together to create the evocative, driving and exciting tracks on "Dirty King", their new album dropping June 23rd. Feeling bad never sounded quite so good!

Music legends Ian Astbury of The Cult and Cyndi Lauper found themselves smitten with The Cliks and hand-picked the band for their respective tours in 2007 and 2008.

Late-night bookers were listening too, and soon The Cliks found themselves on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, not to mention a very special performance frontman Lucas Silveira did with Cyndi Lauper on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The band has quickly picked up momentum landing Logo’s NewNowNext "Artist On the Brink" Award, getting tattooed by Kat Von D on "LA Ink" and even appeared on MTV's "TRL".
