The Cribs have confirmed details of a one off warm up show before the festival season begins.
Strange times for The Cribs. Recruiting iconic indie guitarist Johnny Marr the band’s album ‘Ignore The Ignorant’ was a Top Ten success. Touring across Europe and North America, the band recently sat down to plan their new album.
However it seems that sessions will continue without Johnny Marr. Sadly, the band felt that something wasn’t quite right during the build up to the album and The Cribs decided to revert to a three piece.
No hard feelings on either side, with The Cribs confirming the news in a recent statement. Work on the new album is ongoing, but a producer has yet to be confirmed despite a lengthy search.
Speaking to the NME, Gary Jarman explained that he wanted to work with one time Queen producer Dave Richards. “I used to be obsessed with the Queen album ‘Innuendo'”, he explained. “I’ve been in touch with the producer, Dave Richards, who works out of a studio in Switzerland. He’s interested in doing it – we’re going out there to visit him in July, I think.”
The band have been writing new material, which could feature in their set this summer. The Cribs are due to play a series of festivals, including a special appearance at Scotland’s wildest party RockNess.
Mixing old favourites with unheard material, the group are currently at the rehearsal stage. Peering out of their garage, The Cribs have confirmed plans for a one off warm up show to road test the set.
Taking place in Coventry’s Kasbah venue on May 20th, tickets for the one off show are on sale now.
