The Libertines will allow fans to hear new album ‘Anthems For Doomed Youth’ first through a series of listening parties.
The band release their long-awaited third record on September 4, but fans can hear the album ahead of that date at a series of album playback sessions dubbed Somewhere Over The Railings.
These events will take place in Birmingham, Bristol, Chatham, Exeter, Glasgow, Manchester and Stoke on September 2 and all proceeds go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation. Tickets are priced £2 and available through the band’s website. Entry will be administered via a guest list at the venue. No tickets will be sent out prior.
Somewhere Over The Railings album playback events:
Birmingham, Hare & Hounds (Kings Heath)
Bristol, The Mothers’ Ruin
Chatham, Tap ’n’ Tin
Manchester, Big Hands
‘Anthems For Doomed Youth’ follows the band’s 2004 self-titled album and 2002 debut ‘Up The Bracket’.
In celebration of the album’s release, the group are hosting a “week of shenanigans” at famed, small Camden venue Dublin Castle. The London events include a photo exhibition, documentary screening, album playback, pub quiz and other “surprises”, taking place from August 31 to the album’s release date on September 4.
