Biography

Toronto, Canada

“It’s remarkable that something so good can come from feeling so bad. As is the case of most great art, Toronto trio the Cliks have dredged the emotional mire of the past two years to create Dirty King, a rich rock extravaganza showcasing a sonic expansion for the band. With music as textured and layered as the deeply varied emotional terrain it treads, feeling bad never sounded so good.

Composed from a place of deep turmoil, lead singer Lucas Silveira began work on the Cliks’ second album following the highly successful tours behind sophomore release Snakehouse. The band’s 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. Late-night bookers were listening too, and soon the Cliks found themselves on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, not to mention a very special performance Lucas did with Cyndi Lauper on Jimmy Kimmel Live! The band picked up momentum and fans when Logo awarded them the NewNowNext Artist On the Brink Award which ultimately led to an appearance on teenybopper mecca TRL to discuss their plans for the future.

Though critically lauded and publicly adored, Silveira returned road weary and emotionally shattered.

    No, but seriously. Why is it still tagged as 'female vocalists'? There needs to be a 'flag this tag' button so last.fm knows that there are incorrect tags that they need to remove.

    Wow as much as I stand by my statements re: cissexism, I am seriously regretting that Lucas is the one I invested time in defending, now that I'm finding out he's such a fucking transmisogynistic prick. My advice: tag this as "male vocalist" and then delete it from your library.

    could everyone please tag this band as "male vocalists" in an effort to beat the other cissexist tag out?

    Yep, Lukas IS a male vocalist. He's male. So why on earth would he be a female vocalist...? Oh I know, because you're a transphobic asshole. It IS an important social issue to treat trans people as the genders we are, ok? Half of us are suicidal, why do you think that might be?

    Point is that this isn't a female-fronted band...

    Oh, and to the point of complaining about the tag "female vocalist," get over yourself. There are female vocalist and male vocalist. If it's not a male vocalist than it must be female. Is your life so meaningless that you have to complain about stupid issues like that? Cause let me tell ya, there are no more important social issues at hand than whether or not a female fronted band is labeled as such. smh [2]

    Is the prerequisite for being in bands like these that you have to be a dyke or fag?

    I'm glad to see others have also complained about the mistagging of the lead singer as "female vocals" and in a way more articulately than I think I could have. Basically exactly how I feel except for the whole wishing-death-upon-others thing...: "The 'female vocalists' tag is sexist, sex-essentialist, and completely pointless, since it doesn't provide any actual information as to the type or sound of the music bearing the tag. All arguments that Lucas' voice is female are based on bullshit assumptions that conflate gender with sex as well as the essentialist notion that all people with a certain kind of body will have a certain kind of voice, which is patently false. There is no logical recourse for the idea that Lucas has a 'female voice;' it falls prey to the No True Scotsman fallacy."
