The Libertines at the Grand Hall

The Libertines have added new dates to their upcoming UK tour.

The band recently announced details of a 2017 tour of UK seaside towns, and have now added three Scottish dates preceding the tour. The new dates will see them play Dunfermline, Inverness and Kilmarnock's Grand Hall during September.

 

Their latest album, ‘Anthems For Doomed Youth’ is everything fans could’ve wished for and more: a reinstatement of the Libs’ Arcadian creed, a reflection on past trials, and most importantly, a bold step forward. It harbours songs of primal energy and uplift, of bitter betrayal and loss and of sun-lit love and redemption. Those who’ve lived for the erratic joys of their two early Noughties albums, ‘Up The Bracket’ and ‘The Libertines’, will instinctively perceive a sense of maturation in its DNA, but they’ll also reap an extravagant pay-off for keeping the faith.

It is quite simply, the most eagerly anticipated British rock album of this millennium. Even diehard fans scarcely believed that it’d ever get made, that its creators would sort out their differences long enough to scale the heights of their first era together. But The Libertines are no ordinary band. They are, by a long chalk the most important band of their generation, and after twelve years absence from the studio they’ve arrived finally to prove the nay-sayers wrong.
