Following on from their awesome 2017 record '24-7 Rock Star Shit', the inimitable trio The Cribs, are back with eighth full-length album 'Night Network'. Recorded at the Foo Fighters Studio 606 in Los Angeles.
'Night Network' is as fresh, cathartic and vital as anything they’ve ever put out. There’s no weariness, no bitterness, just a clear desire to get back to doing what they do best – that unique blend of bittersweet melody, brutal lyrical honesty and riffs for days.
In a typically downplayed way, the band have honed in on what’s so special about The Cribs: really bloody good songs. Fans might well think this is their best album in a decade. So, once again all is right in the Cribs world – or as much as all is right in any world in 2020 at least. The Cribs are romantics and they’re realists, and the balance, for a hot minute, nearly tipped in the favour of the latter. But now they return empowered, beholden to no one, on the greatest form and still screaming in suburbia.
This version is pressed on a limited edition 'Tequila Sunrise' (red/orange) split LP.
