The Libertines recently discussed a potential release date of their forthcoming album.

Drummer Gary Powell spoke to The Star, revealing: “The new album is due out in the spring next year.”

Powell added that, while the band have already begun writing the new album, fans shouldn’t attend their sets expecting to hear new music.

“There’s always the possibility of sneaking in a little bit of something new just for people to get to grips with whatever direction that we will be taking next, to keep people as emotionally engaged as we possibly can,” he said.

17 – Dunfermline Alhambra

18 – Inverness Ironworks
19 – Kilmarnock Grand Hall
22 – Blackpool Empress Ballroom 
23 – Hull Arena
25 – Plymouth Pavilions
