The Libertines have announced the title and release date for their new album ‘Anthems For A Doomed Youth’, less than a week after their surprise Glastonbury gig.

Pete Doherty, Carl Barat and their bandmates recorded the album in Thailand, where Pete recently completed a stint in rehab.

The full tracklisting is as follows:

'Gunga Din'

'Fame and Fortune'

'Heart of the Matter'

'Belly of the Beast'

'Iceman'

'You're My Waterloo'

Last month, bassist John Hassall revealed that the band have been experimenting in the studio, stating that synths will be making an appearance on their new tracks.

"We’ve gone progressive... No, don’t get scared,” he joked to NME. “It’s still The Libertines, but it would be weird if we came back and just did exactly the same thing."

The band’s Glastonbury set has been hailed as one of the festival’s highlights, and the Eavis family managed to keep the booking a secret, and their set wasn’t confirmed until Carl led the group onto the Pyramid Stage.
