Having just made a surprise triumphant return at the Glastonbury Festival, where “from the first chords they proved that a summer spent in Thailand recording a new record has reignited the spark that made them such a magnetic, exciting prospect in the first place. The Libertines are also a tighter force than they have ever been,”  (The Telegraph)  causing “the entire crowd to erupt  into the kind of mass sing-along that only a handful of bands could ever achieve” (NME). This summer they will be headlining T in The Park and the Reading & Leeds Festivals.
