Next month on July 5, volatile Brit-rockers The Libertines will reunite to take part in the UK’s Barclaycard British Summer Time concert series, making their first appearance onstage since a few one-off gigs in 2010. While frontman Pete Doherty openly admitted that the upcoming performance was motivated largely by financial necessity, nolstagia of the good o’ days seems to have surfaced, as the group has announced plans for a number of European tour dates.

Speaking with the The Daily Record, Doherty also says that he’s also been speaking with co-founder Carl Barât about a new record, the band’s first since their 2004 self-titled LP. “A new record is exactly what we’re talking about,” says Doherty. “That’s the dream, really. Finish off all those ideas that we never completed back in the day, all those songs we never played for anyone else that have been floating around in the ether. We’re also wanting to try out a few new ideas so it wouldn’t just be old stuff. I don’t want to tempt fate but we both have the desire, so I think it will happen. It’s important to be honest and there’s still a lot we have to say. We’re still relevant.”
