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 name 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. That meant 18 months of fallow - heart-breaking stuff for a band who've known nothing else in their adult lives. "At one point we were actually so disillusioned with what had happened, we didn't even know if we wanted to get back into the band anymore," says Ryan. Fast forward 3 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.
