The Libertines

Long awaited new album - 'Gunga Din'

Saturday 15th August 2015

Seminal English indie rock n roll band The Libertines are back, with news of a highly anticipated new album, 'Anthems For Doomed Youth' due for release on 4th Sept on Virgin EMI. The album will be their third ever, and their first in eleven years.


The band have just unveiled the video for new single 'Gunga Din', filmed in ‘Walking Street’ Pattaya and directed by longtime band photographer Roger Sargent. The song and accompanying visuals truly capture the band's fraternal bond - enjoying themselves together and causing a ruckus in neon-lit Thailand, whilst the song itself is full of the trademark rackety guitar anthems and a heartfelt, indolent singing style.  

Anthems For Doomed Youth was produced by Jake Gosling and recorded at Karma Sound Studios, Thailand, over 6 weeks during April and May 2015.  It will be available as a standard twelve song CD, deluxe CD, 12” vinyl, digital download and a box set, available to preorder now via The Libertines' official site.

'Time For Heroes' was unveiled in January 2003 followed by 'Don’t Look Back Into The Sun', produced by Bernard Butler. Their second album, The Libertines, was released August 2004 and entered the UK album chart at Number One, spawning the top 10 singles 'Can’t Stand Me Now' and 'What Became Of The Likely Lads'.
