The Libertines have confirmed that Pete Doherty and Carl Barat are working on new music together in Thailand with a new album on the way soon.
With a host of big festival slots on the horizon, The Libertines have confirmed that they're edging ever closer to finishing their new album.
In a Facebook post on their official page, the band posted the photo above with the caption: "Peter and Carl are back in Thailand to continue the writing for the new album. Expect album announcement soon."
The band will be headlining Reading and Leeds, T In The Park and Ibiza Rocks festivals this summer, having signed a new record deal late last year. They heralded the recording contract as a "new era and a new beginning for The Libertines."
Radio X will keep you posted as we hear more about the band's plans, their first new album since 2004.
