The Libertines are officially back, sign with Virgin/EMI and recording a new album


As mentioned, The Libertines reformed this year to play London’s Barclaycard British Summer Time concerts and now the band have announced that they’re back for real, having signed with Virgin/EMI with a new record in the works. The above picture is of the band signing the deal, which happened in Thailand where co-frontman Pete Doherty is currently in rehab. (His troubles with addiction are long and storied.)

This will be the first album from The Libertines since their self-titled second LP in 2004. Listen to their acclaimed, Mick Jones-produced debut, Up the Bracket, via Rdio below…
