The Libertines' Reunion May Be Permanent One


The Libertines' Reunion May Be Permanent One


The Pete Doherty-fronted rock band which disbanded in 2004 and returned to the scene this year may be heading to a full-time reunion.

Rockers The Libertines might be back for good - the cult band is considering making its reunion permanent. The British group split in 2004 after a series of bust-ups between frontmen Pete Doherty and Carl Barat over Doherty's spiraling drug addictions.

They announced earlier this year that they would reform for two festival gigs in England this month but ruled out a long-term reunion. But intense rehearsals for their comeback shows have brought the previously warring band close together again - and a permanent return to performing and recording is now "definitely possible".

Drummer Gary Powell tells British rock magazine NME, "I think that decision will actually come (after the reunion shows). (We) would all love to continue doing this." Bassist John Hassall adds, "I think it's very important how these gigs go. Not for everyone else but for ourselves. The focus is on these gigs, and then we'll see what happens. Really, you couldn't say at the moment (if we'll reform permanently). But yeah, it's definitely possible."

The band is due to play at the Reading and Leeds festivals in the U.K. this weekend.
