A documentary about English rockers The Libertines has received it’s online premiere today!
The short film follows the band’s run of comeback shows at London’s Hyde Park and is directed by Roger Sargent, who previously worked with the London lads on the documentary Libertines: There Are No Innocent Bystanders back in 2011.
The official announcement follows a series of image and quote teasers on Facebook. “No more teasing,” the posts read. “All of these pictures and quotes are taken from a wonderful short film that Roger Sargent made for us ahead of our recent tour. We’ll be unveiling the film in full soon, so keep your eyes on the Good Ship Albion as it sets course once again.”
Pete Doherty, Carl Barat, John Hassall and Gary Powell got together for the first time since 2010 initially for a headline comeback at British Summer Time in London’s Hyde Park in July this year. However, the gig ended up leading to more festival appearances as well as a full blown tour of Europe.
The band also recently confirmed that they were working on new material for a third album while frontman Pete Doherty attends rehab in Thailand.
Carl Barat meanwhile, is gearing up to release new album Glory Days with The Jackals.
Rumours are also rife that the band will headline Glastonbury next year, with a source telling London’s The Sun newspaper: “The Libertines have been on Glastonbury’s wishlist for ages but shot straight to the top when they saw the appetite for them.”
