Babyshambles performed a new song in Paris this weekend, playing a gig with their new drummer Adam Falkner.

Pete Doherty and his bandmates Mik Whitnall and Drew McConnell were joined by Falkner on drums. A picture of the drummer with Doherty and guitarist Whitnall was posted on McConnell's Instagram page on April 6, showing the band on the streets of Paris. The band then played new song 'Dr No (Sharks In The Water)' at the La Fontaine venue on Saturday night (April 6). Scroll down to see video footage of the performance now.

It was reported earlier this year that Pete Doherty has started work on a new Babyshambles album with producer Stephen Street, who produced the band's last full-length effort, 2007's 'Shotters Nation'. Bassist Drew McConnell revealed the news to NME. He explained that while the sessions had initially been set for Doherty's second solo album, it was confirmed by the singer and his record label, Parlophone, that the album would be released as Babyshambles' third.

Drummer Adam Ficek left Babyshambles in 2010, so Stereophonics drummer Jamie Morrison, who used to play in Noisettes, has been playing with the band in the studio. Guitarist Mik Whitnall is on board once more, as is keyboard player Stephen Large and songwriter John Robinson, who wrote the track 'I Am The Rain' on 'Grace/Wastelands', Doherty's solo album.
