The Cribs have revealed that they intend to record two new studio albums over the next 12 months.
The Cribs are a law unto themselves. Last year's studio album 'In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull' found the band returning to their familiar three piece set up, with re-invigorated live shows a testimony to the band's continuing thirst for progression.
Taking time off to plan their next step, the Jarman brothers found themselves being torn in two directions. So The Cribs did the obvious thing, and decided to make two entirely separate albums.
Speaking to the NME, Gary Jarman said: "There’s one that’s going to be really noisy and visceral and immediate, and one that’s gonna be more pop. We’ve been writing for the past month or so and there’s definitely an idealistic concept of these two records, which has come from that."
Continuing, Jarman explained: "In my mind we’ll probably be recording by the beginning of next year. Judging by how we normally work, that’s how I see it."
