SWIMMING POOL BLUE VINYL LP

The Cribs are back and on blistering form, brandishing their brand new eighth album, Night Network. The self-produced 12-track album was recorded at the Foo Fighters Studio 606 in Los Angeles in the spring / summer of 2019.

Having released their Steve Albini engineered album, 24-7 Rock Star Shit - their fourth consecutive UK top 10 album - in August 2017 the multiple Q and NME award winning band almost immediately parted company with their long time UK management and found themselves stuck in what Gary describes as a "legal morass," unable to record or release new music, so touring wasn't an option either. Fast forward three years and 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.

The turning point came at the 11th hour, in the late summer of 2018. The Cribs had been invited to support Foo Fighters at Manchester's Etihad Stadium, in what could very well have been the band's last hurrah. Enter the brothers' knight in shining armour, and childhood hero, Dave Grohl. Hanging out backstage, chatting over a few post-show drinks, The Cribs confided their recent struggles to their new friend. "Dave was just like, 'forget about all that business stuff, just come out to L.A. and make a record at our studio' - Dave made that offer to us," Ryan recalls.
