The Cribs Announce New Single

Having whetted the appetite with ‘Chi-Town’, a whirlwind four date live excursion and the imminence of a fifth album ‘In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull’, The Cribs are pleased to announce the arrival of a brand new single, ‘Come On, Be A No-One’ which you can hear at the bottom of the page. The single is set for release on 16th April via Wichita Records.

Taken from their forthcoming album ‘Come On, Be A No-One’ has already become a new highlight in the band’s ever expansive live set and sees The Cribs, who have reverted back to their trio status, in bullish form. The recording of this new album saw the band split their time between the UK at London’s Abbey Road, Chicago at Steve Albini’s EAR studio, and upstate New York at Dave Fridmann’s Tarbox Road studio which is where ‘Come On, Be a No-One’ was born.

‘Come On, Be A No-One‘ is the rallying call before being enveloped by a wave of guitar, bass and drums that shows no let up in during it’s two minutes and thirty eight second lifetime and again sees the band return with an undiluted enthusiam and a lust for new peaks.

Released on 16th April ‘Come On, Be A No-One’ is available via Wichita Recordings on 7” (WEBB337s) and digitally (WEBB337sdl) through all usual outlets.

The Cribs will be playing songs from ‘In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull’ and their four previous albums for UK audiences when they play selected shows in May as follows:

The Cribs UK tour dates are:

7th Nottingham Rock City
8th London The Troxy
9th Bristol O2 Academy
11th Glasgow Barrowlands
12th Manchester Academy
13th Eastbourne Winter Gardens
