Trust The Libertines to release their new album in an awesome, unconventional way. Pete Doherty, Carl Barat and the boys are hosting a "week of shenanigans" in Camden to mark their first record in 11 years finally reaching fans.

Famous intimate venue the Dublin Castle will help the band present 'Somewhere Over the Railings' with planned activities including a pub quiz, new photo exhibition, album playbacks, their Thailand documentary premiere , exclusive prizes and "surprises".

The likely lads are kicking off the fun the day after headlining Reading Festival, on 31 August and bringing things to a close five days later on 4 September when Anthems For Doomed Youth drops.


If this isn't enough to satiate your Libertines appetite, there will also be a pop-up shop, 'Bucket Shop', opening on 24 August and selling rare memorabilia and treasures for charity.
