The Cribs

The Cribs, which Johnny Marr is no longer a part of, are set to release their fifth album, In the Belly of the Brazen Bull, on May 8 via Wichita/Warner Bros. The album was recorded with Steve Albini (who also worked on the new Screaming Females album and Cloud Nothings album) and Flaming Lips mainstay Dave Fridmann. They just released the album's first single, "Chi-Town," along with the album's tracklist and a tour announcement. You can grab that single above or stream it below.

The tour includes North American dates in April and UK dates in May and hits NYC on April 13 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that Brooklyn show are on AmEx presale now and go on sale to the general public on Friday (2/17) at noon.
