Longtime Epi fans and UK BritPop legends The Libertines featuring Epiphone Coronet and Casino fan Pete Doherty will kick off a late summer tour of the UK next week with shows scheduled in Newcastle, Blackpool, Inverness, Hull, Plymouth, and Scarborough. The quartet has been earning rave reviews for their recent headline appearances at the Tramlines & Truck Festival and the Oxfordshire Festival. The band has plans to release a new album in Spring 2018.

“There’s always the possibility of sneaking in a little bit of something new just for people to get to grips with whatever direction that we will be taking next, to keep people as emotionally engaged as we possibly can,” drummer Gary Powell told The Star. "“But there’s an unwritten rule about the Libs – you never know what’s going to happen next.”
