THE LIBERTINES. English rock band formed in London in 1997 by Pete Doherty and Carl Barat. The band was part of the garage rock revival and spearheaded the movement in the UK. They gained some notoriety in the early 2000s, although their mainstream success was initially limited. Their profile grew, culminating in a No2 single and No1 album on the UK Charts. In spite of their critical and commercial success, the band's music was often eclipsed by its internal conflicts, stemming from Doherty's addictions to crack cocaine and heroin which eventually led to the breakup of the band. In August 2010, the four members of the Libertines reunited to play a series of shows, including slots at the Reading & Leeds festivals. The reunion shows received a highly positive response from the press & fans and in April 2014 they announced they would again reform for a show at London's Hyde Park. In November 2014 they signed a record deal with Virgin EMI and released their third album "Anthems for Doomed Youth" on 11th September 2015.
