I never thought we’d see this again, but The Libertines are back and there’s gonna be a new album. Being a fan of The Libertines who has now crossed into middle age, it’s hard to believe they were so relevant right as I was leaving high school. Now at age thirty they come back with “Gunga Din” and Anthems For Doomed Youth. It’s kind of the Christmas miracle of modern day British rock – at least in a certain light.
“Gunga Din” is a little reggae, a little hip-hop, yet still firmly Libertines. Anthems for Doomed Youth is out September 4th.
