Babyshambles @ Rockhal, 14 January 2014


Currently putting the finishing touches to their third album “Sequel to The Prequel”, British indie-rock band Babyshambles, formed and fronted by the infamous Peter Doherty, embark on a live tour with a stopover in Luxembourg on 14 January 2014. The first taster of new material, “Nothing Comes to Nothing” being released in late August sees Peter Doherty and co back on top form, ready to bring their very own brand of rambunctious rock n roll to the audience of the Rockhal Club.

Musician, painter, actor and poet, Peter Doherty formed Babyshambles during a much-publicized hiatus from UK band The Libertines in the early 2000’s. The side project went on to become Doherty’s primary band and win over an army of devoted fans. Performing with a powerful mixture of passion and honesty they have been an inspiration to many young upcoming musicians and writers. Their debut album “Down in Albion” was unleashed back in November 2005 and was followed in 2007 by “Shotter’s Nation”.

No band of recent times has split opinion as much as Babyshambles. But this, at last, is the moment both fans and doubters have been waiting for because Babyshambles will release their third album “Sequel To The Prequel” on 2 September. Preceded by the first single “Nothing Comes To Nothing”, due for release on 26 August, the album was recorded at Question De Son, Paris and mixed in The Bunker, London, with producer/mixer and long time Shambles collaborator Stephen Street.

Filled with hooks and humour, the album features some of the band’s finest ever lyrics ranging from the tender to the downright hilarious. Musically it has already been called their most accomplished and collaborative work to date.

Peter Doherty (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, lyrics), Mick Whitnall (lead guitar, lyrics), Drew McConnell (bass guitar, backing vocals) and new recruit Jamie Morrison (drums and percussion) will touch down on Luxembourg’s soil on 14 January 2014. Don’t miss the sharp English garage rockers live at the Rockhal. Make sure to secure your tickets and see the boys in action. Source:
