The Cribs

For the past decade, The Cribs have been tied to Wichita.

It's a relationship which benefited both parties. The Cribs have risen to become one of the country's biggest guitar acts, with their ceaseless touring constructing an enormous cult following.

Wichita, too, were able to offer the group stability and support during what have inarguably been lean years for the British indie scene.

Now, though, the Jarmans feel a chance is needed with The Cribs set to move to Sony RED. The move was confirmed by the band's manager James Sandom in a short chat with Music Week:

"After a very enjoyable decade together with Wichita, the band felt the fresh impetus and a new approach would be advantageous for their sixth studio album. They have huge respect for Wichita, and fond memories of their achievements together."

The Cars' Ric Ocasek is set to steer the group's new album - The Cribs' first since the success of 2012's 'In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull'.
