The Libertines’ documentary There Are No Innocent Bystanders is now available to order on DVD. The film, which was was given its premiere last year at London’s Troxy as part of the East End Film Festival, has been made available to buy as part of a collaboration between the film’s director Roger Sargent and Pledgemusic, which will raise money for the production cost of the DVD.

As part of the Pledgemusic campaign, buyers will be able to buy a series of special editions of the DVD, signed poster prints, rare and unseen photos of the band and various other packages. For the full list of packages, visit Pledgemusic.com/projects/thelibertines.
The film features new interviews with the band and documents their 2010 reunion, where they played the Reading And Leeds Festivals as well as warm-up gigs in London. The interviews with co-frontmen Barat and Doherty openly discuss the still-simmering tensions between the pair, who have both indicated that they currently have no plans to resurrect The Libertines.
