The Cribs '24/7 Rock Star Shit' LP
Fresh off the back of a sell-out spring tour celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the bands much lauded third album 'Men's Needs, Women's Needs, What-ever' (which saw them headline their largest show to date at Leeds First Direct Arena), The Cribs are excited to announce the impending release of their new record '24-7 Rock Star Shit' on the 11th of August 2017.
Recorded live to tape in just 5 days by venerated underground engineer Steve Albini (Nirvana, Shellac, Pixies) '24-7 Rock Star Shit' marks a return to the bands early roots with it's raw, rough-around-the-edges approach and sonic aggression. Originally conceived during recording sessions for the bands fifth album 'In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull' these recordings were elevated to qua-si-mythical status amongst the bands famously dedicated fan-base, with ex-citement building for a "punk album" flipside to 2015's more pop-leaning 'For All My Sisters'. Originally intended as an EP, once sessions were completed the band foundthattheyhadrecordedenoughmaterialforanalbumanddecideditshouldbe released that way instead - "That approach just really suits us, we were just having too much fun I guess" laughs the band.
