Pete Doherty: 'Libertines Reunion Is Unavoidable'
March 12, 2009
Pete Doherty has said a reunion of his former band, The Libertines, is “unavoidable”.
Doherty told The Sun newspaper that he was keen to reform with former bandmate Carl Barat in order to play the group's songs again.
The Libertines split in 2004 because of Doherty's escalating drug problems, but the pair have been spotted together increasingly over recent months.
Doherty told the newspaper: “I just want to play those songs again.”
The singer, now of Babyshambles, was quoted recently as saying the band had been offered “millions” to perform at the Reading and Leeds festivals this summer.
Barat went on to form Dirty Pretty Things following the demise of The Libertines along with drummer Gary Powell. The band have since split.
Doherty is due to release his debut solo album, 'Grace/Wastelands', on Monday (March 16th).
