The last time we posted on Clinic it was because Arcade Fire covered Internal Wrangler’s “Distortions.” But now Clinic are back with their very own cover … the cover art for their forthcoming Do It! (their exclamation point, not ours, though we are excited). On top of the colorful decor we have a special tour announcement from the boys, after the jump. Just do it.
While you ponder the riddle of the Sphinx, keep this in mind: Clinic are touring North American in May and plan to play Do It!, which the band calls “a warped technicolor explosion,” in its entirety. That start-to-finish treatment will be followed with a selection of “Clinic classics,” chosen by … the fans. So, kids, pull out your old Clinic (four full-lengths, two comps) and tell the band what they should rock out on stage. This way you don’t have to bother yelling it out while you’re at the show. You can contact them at [email protected] V00t!
