are to re-release debut album ‘UP THE BRACKET’.

The album, out in its new version on September 8, will include the band’s debut single ‘What A Waster’ and a bonus DVD with videos for ‘Up The Bracket’, ‘Time For Heroes’ and ‘I Get Along’.


As previously reported, Libertines’ new single ‘Don’t Look Back Into The Sun’, produced by Bernard Butler, is out on August 18.

The only live UK dates for the troubled band are the Carling Weekend: Reading And Leeds over the weekend of August 22-24. Co-frontman Pete Doherty is still estranged from the band and was arrested and accused of burglary last Friday (July 25). He was bailed to reappear in court on August 11.

See next week’s NME, on sale August 5 in London, and the next day nationwide, for the exclusive interview with Pete on the schism within the band, and the future.
