Speaking to NME recently, The Cribs hit out against the UK’s “old school dinosaurs” with a “grudge” against the trio. Frontman Ryan Jarman expressed his view that the band have to battle against many detractors, saying, “We’re one of those bands who have seeped into public consciousness just by being around such a long time. There are still some old school dinosaurs in the UK who just have a grudge against us. They just don’t give us a chance to get bigger or actively block it…so we just have to put out another record that’s better than the last one.”
Jarman also discussed difficulties the band faced during their three-year absence prior to their new LP, “It had become so destructive, so completely negative. It became unhealthy, absolutely,” Jarman said, relating to recent personal struggles. “I just remember at first I wasn’t leaving the house for ages. I had quite a lot of social anxiety. There were loads of other things going on as well, a lot of unhealthy things happening.”
