The band start work on their debut album in Wales…

Babyshambles have headed into the studio in WALES to start work on their debut album.

Pete Doherty and the band left London on Sunday (March 20) to move into the Twin Peaks studio in the Brecon Beacons.

The star is cutting himself off from the outside world in the remote studio previously used by Manic Street Preachers and Catatonia.

A source close to the band told NME.COM, “They’ve only been in there a day.”

Babyshambles are working on the record with Clash’s Mick Jones and producer Bill Price, known for his work with Clash, Sex Pistols and on the last Babyshambles album.

Doherty was given permission to go to Wales after re-arranging his strict bail conditions in relation to charges of alleged blackmail and robbery.

The band are expected to be in the studio until Doherty must return to Snaresbrook Crown Court on April 18 to enter his plea.

Babyshambles’ debut album is expected to be released this summer.
