So those pesky Libertines, having signed to Virgin EMI late last year and promised us a brand new album, this week confirmed that said long player – their first since 2004 – will be released in September.

Called ‘Anthems For Doomed Youth’, doomed youth everywhere will be pleased to hear that their anthems include tracks like ‘Gunga Din’, as performed at recent Libertine live shows. Lucky doomed youth.

With the album on pre-order from all good pre-ordering locations (and you can already buy the aforementioned ‘Din’), PledgeMusic has announced that it is exclusively offering pre-orderers in the UK a special deluxe box set that includes bonus demo tracks, a signed art-print and a DVD film. Here you go boxset-desiring pre-orderers.

Is Pledge thrilled to be involved? You bet. Says Pledge President Malcolm Dunbar: “I’m thrilled and delighted that one of the biggest albums of the year, by one of the most important UK bands of the last decade, involves PledgeMusic and is further evidence of how the direct-to-fan model can make an important contribution in the whole new release process”.
