The Libertines Leaked On The Internet

Published: 2004-07-22
Amidst their many troubles, the Libertines have something good coming in their future. The band's second album is to see release on August 30th in the UK on Rough Trade records (it will be available through import in North America). The self-titled album is one of the most highly anticipated of the year, and many people are having trouble waiting for it.

Like many other albums, 'The Libertines' has been leaked onto the internet. All fourteen tracks have been downloaded by people around the world, but the Libertines don't seem too concerned with it. The disc is being released as planned, and there's been no word that the release date will be moved forward.

Hailed as 'the most important band of our generation' by the ever zealous NME, the Libertines have a lot to live up to on their second album. The first single off of 'The Libertines' will be a track called 'Can't Stand Me Now' released in the beginning of August. Hopefully the title of the track isn't foretelling the band's future.

For those following the Libertines drama, temporarily excised member Pete Doherty has decided to go on a solo tour in the UK. The Libertines are currently playing shows without the guitarist, recruiting Anthony Rossomando as his replacement. As soon as Doherty cleans up his drug problems, Carl Barat has promised the troubled co-frontman will be welcomed back into the Libertines.

The track-listing of 'The Libertines':

'Can't Stand Me Now'
'Last Post On The Bugle'
'Don't Be Shy'
'The Man Who Would Be King'
'Music When The Lights Go Out'
'The Ha Ha Wall'
'Arbeit Macht Frei'
'Campaign Of Hate'
'What Katie Did'
'The Saga'
'Road To Ruin'
