New Libertines film seen prior to recent comeback gigs to be officially released

Band upload photos and quotes from film by Roger Sargent onto Facebook

The Libertines have revealed that a new short film about the band is to be released soon.

The band have been uploading a series of old photos and quotes onto their Facebook page throughout this week. The cryptic posts included the lines “I know Carl cares deeply, really, about what we achieved” and “The greatest achievement I’ve done, basically, needs me to be entwined with him…”

Today, they finally divulged that the pictures and quotes are taken from a “wonderful” short film about the band by photographer and filmmaker Roger Sargent and shown prior to their recent live dates in the UK and Europe.

“No more teasing… all of these pictures and quotes are taken from a wonderful short film that Roger Sargent made for us ahead of our recent tour,” they wrote. “We’ll be unveiling the film in full soon, so keep your eyes on the Good Ship Albion as it sets course once again.”

The Libertines have a long history with Sargent, whose documentary about the band’s 2010 reunion, titled ‘Libertines: There Are No Innocent Bystanders’, was released in 2012.

Earlier this month, Carl Barât revealed to NME that he and Pete Doherty have written five new songs together for The Libertines’ third album.

Meanwhile, Doherty has spent the last month in a Thai rehab facility, having stated an interest in using his position to help others struggling with drug addiction.
