The Cliks’ latest release, Snakehouse, hit shelves last April.

The album features transgendered frontman/guitarist Lucas Silveira, guitarist Nina Martinez, bassist Jen Benton, and drummer Morgan Doctor on tracks like “Oh Yeah,” “Complicated” and Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River,” which is transformed into a rock anthem.

The band made a name for itself last year with ferocious live sets on Cyndi Lauper‘s True Colors Tour and heavy airplay on MTV’s lesbian and gay network, Logo.

Lauper said about the band, “Part of my mission with the True Colors Tour was to provide a platform for some new and exciting acts. A band like The Cliks are all that and more. They are a force to be reckoned with and I am really excited to be sharing the stage with them.”
