Anthems for Doomed Youth is released Sep 4 on Harvest Records
After a blistering surprise set at Glastonbury, filling Florence + the Machine’s original spot and making it incredibly different for Flo et al to follow, The Libertines have announced their first album in 11 years.
The group announced Anthems for Doomed Youth, their third album, following 2002’s debut Up the Bracket and 2004’s The Libertines, via Facebook.
Reactions have been, er, mixed …

Just seen the title of the new Libertines album. I suppose it explains Doherty's new look: pic.twitter.com/nf2WIXsYvH— Nick Pettigrew (@Nick_Pettigrew) July 2, 2015
The Libertines named their new album 'Anthems for Doomed Youth', meaning I don't even have to listen out of curiosity to know how bad it is.— Melody Now Son (@melodynowson) July 2, 2015
Seeing Pete Docherty on stage reminded me of this John Cooper Clarke poem http://t.co/J0QwRp9ImP— Rhiannon L Cosslett (@rhiannonlucyc) June 28, 2015
