‘Anthems For Doomed Youth’ was produced by Jake Gosling and recorded at Karma Sound Studios, Thailand, over six weeks during April and May 2015. It is The Libertines’ third album and their first in eleven years. Having just made a surprise triumphant return at the Glastonbury Festival, on the Pyramid stage on Friday 26th June, The Libertines previously sold over 100,000 tickets in London alone last year with sold-out appearances at Alexandra Palace (3 shows – September) and Hyde Park British Summer Time (July).

“Their third album has finally emerged. It’s the moment anyone who ever dreamed of Albion has been waiting ten years for.” (NME 17th June 2015)

“No artist in the early millennium generated as thrilling a crackle of excitement as The Libertines, one of those rare bands who can change the way you walk, talk, dress and behave.” (The Metro, 29th September 2014)
