Speaking to NME recently, Libertines drummer Gary Powell said that the band’s new album might “push the boat out a little more”.

“The good thing is everybody’s been writing,” he said. “I’m hoping there’s going to be a whole new fervour and interesting dimension added to how we approach things.

“Obviously, we’re not going to try and reinvent the wheel and be like Depeche Mode going from rock ‘n’ roll to electronic, but I think we can push the boat out a little more while still bringing something that has the same emotional integrity and dynamism that the audience craves when they come to a Libertines show.”
