The Cribs reveal fifth album plans

The band will be back in the studio after festival season

The Cribs have revealed that they will start work on their fifth album after their festival dates this summer.

The announcement was made on the band’s Twitter feed following news of their set at this summer’s RockNess Festival in Scotland (June 10-12).

“Despite being on a break, The Cribs are not superhuman and still have to eat, therefore they will be playing a handful of summer festival shows,” said the band.


The Cribs then went on to tell their followers they’ll be returning to the studio when the festival shows are over, more of which are to be announced.

The band’s last album, the Top Ten ‘Ignore the Ignorant’, was released in September 2009 and was the first to feature new member Johnny Marr.
