Art of the Cover - The Libertines' "Anthems for Doomed Youth" (2015)

Wonderful artwork.

It was a bit of a shock stumbling across this the other day. Definitely one from the 'thought they were dead' category!

Yap, cuddly Carl and prickly Pete have apparently put aside a few truckloads of animosity and the mighty Libertines have reformed. And they've come up with the optimistically titled "Anthems for Doomed Youth" - which is, surprisingly, only their third studio album.

And pretty fucking good it is too.

It's a rather literary thing with the likes of  "Anthem for Doomed Youth" and "Gunga Din" referencing poems of the same titles by Wilfred Owen and Rudyard Kipling respectively.

Anthems for Doomed Youth dropped 11 September 2015.

The new album comes in an array of formats inclusing Digital, CD, and Vinyl.

There is also a Deluxe Edition, released on CD, and Digitally, which includes extra tracks and contains artwork.

There's also a wonderful Box Set, including a Deluxe CD, a Vinyl copy, exclusive film, and signed art prints, is also available.
