A track has leaked online, and it’s not pretty…
PETE DOHERTY has hit out at Libertines in a new song.
The estranged guitarist has recorded a new track with side-project Babyshambles in which he lambastes Carl Barat and those close to the band for being kicked out over his drug addictions.
A studio recording of ’Gang Of Gin’ has appeared online and features the lyrics: “I’ll tell you my story/The treachery, it bores me/Carl and McGee both promised me/It would not happen this way/Carl is kept sedated/The frontman elevated.”
Pete then goes on to lash out at the music industry, singing: “In this industry of fools/Musclemen and ghouls/If you’re not a puppet or a muppet/Then you might as well call it a day.”
Babyshambles will kick off their UK tour at Brighton Concorde 2 on September 16.
As previously reported on NME.COM, Libertines release their new single ’What Became Of The Likely Lads’ on October 18 as the second track to be lifted from their second self-titled album.
