Good news for all us Libs fans! Finally, we’re getting somewhere. Now that our Peter is out of rehab and the boys have all stopped fighting, robbing each others flats an album is well on its way.
Doherty said that “there’s a miracle aspect to actually getting it done and all getting together to do it,” adding: “We’re all really proud of it”. Pete’s fellow singer and guitarist, Carl Barat echoed the sentiment, saying: “It’s staggering that we’ve got to the point where we’ve actually got an imminent release for the fucking Libertines. Are you kidding me? Honestly, I’m still kind of pinching myself. Is this really going to happen? It’s mental, but I guess it is.”
Ahead of the album’s release, The Libertines have also been confirmed as the headliners for both T In The Park and the Reading And Leeds festivals this summer.
