Carl Barat has said that there is "no future" for The Libertines with things standing as they are between him and Pete Doherty.

The frontman was speaking in the new issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands tomorrow (May 11) or available digitally. In the interview he alluded to a bust-up with co-frontman Doherty and suggested that the pair's relationship is too damaged for more band commitments to take place.

"We are all in very different places," he said. "Right now is not the time for The Libertines. I thought the water under the bridge was under the bridge, but maybe it's not. It's a very fucking hard thing. Every time we talk it just brings it back up."



He added: "I don't believe we're healed from the hurt. If our hearts heal up then we can break them all over again. But right now… it's hard."

Barat was speaking to NME at the recent London premiere of new Libertines documentary There Are No Innocent Bystanders, directed by Roger Sargent. Get the new issue of the magazine for the full interview plus chats with the other band members, previously-unseen pictures from the premiere and a review of the film.
