The Libertines burst on to the UK music scene in 2002 with their debut album Up the Bracket. Hot tracks like What a Waster and I Get Along led to many "best new band" awards.
The group broke up at the end of 2004 months after the release of their second album. Although some members of The Libertines reunited to perform in 2010, the group reformed in 2014 and sold out shows at London's Hyde Park and Alexandra Palace. This led them to work on a new album, Anthems for Doomed Youth, which was released in 2015.
Currently working on another release, The Libertines will return for a series of UK shows this December.
