The Cliks, Hunter Valentine Join Forces With The Dollyrots For The Guts And Glory Tour

Toronto natives and labelmates The Cliks and Hunter Valentine announce a ten-date tour with Los Angeles' The Dollyrots from August 24th to September 3rd, 2010. The undeniable DIY ethic and commitment to touring employed by all three bands brings them together for shows from coast to coast.

Led by front man Lucas Silvera, The Cliks paired up with legendary producer-engineer Sylvia Massy to record "Dirty King" (Tommy Boy Records), their most adventurous album to date. Following the great success of their sophomore album "Snakehouse," The Cliks' incendiary live shows became the calling card by which they were known, and in short order, musical heroes Ian Astbury of the Cult and Cyndi Lauper hand-picked the band for their respective tours. MTV's Logo awarded The Cliks the NewNowNext "Artist On the Brink" award which ultimately led to an appearance on teenybopper mecca TRL.

With the release of their brand new sophomore album "Lessons From the Late Night" (Tommy Boy Records), Hunter Valentine was recently named "Best Local Band" by Go Magazine. Always committed to touring and performing for new audiences, the band recently returned from a west coast tour of the United States and continues to tour in their native Canada and in the United States. Working with award-winning director Taylor Cohen, their video for "The Stalker" won mtvU's "The Freshmen," and the band recently shot a new video for "Revenge" with acclaimed Canadian director Colin Minihan.
