Clinic Announce Release of 5th Album & Tour

Clinic release their 5th album, Do It!, on April 8th on Domino Records. The band embark on a 20 date tour in support of this release on May 8th.

Recorded by Clinic in their Liverpool studio and mixed by Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Kings of Leon, Archie Bronson Outfit), the eleven song collection on Do It! sees Clinic return with an energized and increasingly psych-rock influenced sound. Tracks range from the Henry Flynt and John Denver laced acoustic "Tomorrow" to the tango rhythm of "High Coin", the dance-floor groover "The Witch (Made to Measure)" to the mellow lounge feeling "Free Not Free", the raw, free-form punk of "Shopping Bag" to the spaced-out closer "Coda". Retaining Clinic's distinct sonic fingerprint, Do It! is a warped pop amalgam filled with songs about living for the day, love, escaping witch hunts and more.

Do It! will be preceded by a free single "Free Not Free"/"Thor" available for download with artwork from the Clinic website,, on February 1st
