Seventh LP Free Reign produced with assistance of Oneohtrix Point Never; listen to album sampler below

Liverpool's Clinic have announced that their seventh album is in the works: Free Reign is set for release on November 12 via Domino. They've put out a sampler ahead of the release, featuring some typically warm shades of electronic psychedelia (and a blast of sax, if we're not mistaken) - listen below:

The band produced the LP themselves in their hometown and had some help in the mixing from Dan Lopatin, aka synth-pop virtuoso and Software label head Oneohtrix Point Never.

Clinic are also releasing the album in a limited edition 'UFO' format, containing a glow in the dark "cosmic flying disc"... Alternatively, you can be the proud owner of a fluorescent frisbee with download code come November.
