The Libertines have shared a new single dubbed "quite possibly the most Libertines single ever".

The indie earworm, entitled Oh S*** is taken from their long-awaited new album All Quiet On The Eastern Esplanade, which is released on 5th April 2024.

Oh Shit

Written by Peter Doherty and Carl Barât, Oh S*** is the fourth single to be taken from the record, following previously released tracks Run, Run, Run, Night of The Hunter and Shiver- the video for which sees the band (completed by John Hassall and Gary Powell) take part in a funeral procession for a Pearly King.

Their shows will kick off on Monday 23rd September at Dublin's 3Olympia Theatre and will see the band go back to their roots with three consecutive dates at London's Roundhouse - with the third date at the iconic Camden venue added on 1st November due to popular demand.

"There's something about the sea," Doherty told Radio X when asked about playing on Brighton beach for the first time. "There's a calling to it. We're an island nation, aren't we?"

Turning to his Libertines colleague, Pete recalled: "Do you remember the times in Camden, at the end of the night, it'd be two or three in the morning, when we were like 18, 19, and I had my little van? One time we drove down to Brighton."

Barât replied: "There's always that sort of innate attraction to those bodies of water."
