The band – co-fronted by Pete Doherty and Carl Barât – will play The Wardrobe on Thursday, February 14 next year ahead of the release of ‘All Quiet On The Eastern Esplanade’, their first new album in nine years.

The quartet became known for their ramshackle shows and Doherty and Barât’s raucous chemistry in the early 2000s before they disbanded due to the former’s growing drug problems. They reformed in 2010 and have toured and performed together since.

Doherty opened up about his drug problems and run-ins with the press and police at the height of the band’s fame in a recent interview with Louis Theroux.
