The Libertines co-frontman Carl Barât has said that the band hope to write new material ahead of their headline show at Hyde Park on Saturday, July 5.

Speaking to The Independent, the singer said of his relationship with bandmate Pete Doherty: “We’re brothers, we still finish each other’s sentences. I’m seeing Pete next week and we’ll get the guitars out. Hopefully we’ll come up with some new songs for Hyde Park.”

The band are set to play Hyde Park part of Barclaycard's British Summer Time gigs on July 5, it was announced this week. The show will be their biggest ever and their first since headlining Reading & Leeds festivals in 2010.

On the financial incentive for the reunion, Barât added: “It’s a tough time for bands to make a living. It’s messed up for musicians. City bankers and footballers earn hundreds of thousands a week but a show like this is a one-off. And we pay tax on it.”

Tickets for The Libertines at British Summertime are priced from £55 and go onsale from 9am on Friday, May 2. To check the availability of British Summer Time tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS.
