The Cribs and High Road Touring are happy to announce that the cult UK
band will be touring throughout the USA and Canada this fall,
including an appearance at Chicago’s Riot Fest.

Known for their fiercely DIY approach to recording and touring at a
time when indie music in the UK was going through a huge commercial
boom, The Cribs always stood out from their contemporaries as an
altogether more uncompromising prospect. Releasing their first two
LP’s ‘The Cribs’ (2004), and ‘The New Fellas’ (2005) on UK independent
label Wichita Recordings, the band quickly built a loyal and devoted
fan-base which lead to Q Magazine describing them as “The biggest cult
band in the UK”.

After the breakthrough success of their third LP “Men’s Needs, Women’s
Needs, Whatever” (Warner Bros., 2007), The Cribs were joined by legendary
Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr as a full-time member of the group for
their fourth full-length “Ignore The Ignorant” (Warner Bros, 2009).
Following Marr’s departure in 2011, The Cribs returned with their
critical high-point “In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull” in 2012, and
then their latest album “For All My Sisters”, produced by Ric Ocasek (Weezer, Bad Brains)
which was released in 2015. All 3 albums charted in the UK Top 10.

Fast-forward to May of this year, when rumours began to swirl that there
would be new Cribs music on the way after a series of cryptic messages
released through the bands social media – leading to an easter-egg
hunt of independent record stores both in the UK and the USA to find
the limited-edition, white-label only 7″ release “Year of Hate”.
Following quickly up on that, The Cribs surprise-released their first
official new single “In Your Palace”, again through their social media
channels, on June 1st. Recorded by legendary Nirvana producer Steve
Albini, the track finds the band returning to their punk roots, with
Albini taking them “closer to capturing the magic of their rough ‘n
raw live show than ever” (DIY Magazine) resulting in “A feral return,
laced with barely constrained energy” (Clash Magazine).

Nominated for numerous “Best Live Band” awards from the likes of the
NME, Q, and Mojo Magazine, The Cribs have always made touring their
number 1 priority, and in their home country have become main stage
perennials at festivals such as Glastonbury, Reading/Leeds, T in the
Park, and many more. Stateside, they have played both the Coachella
and Lollapalooza festivals twice, amongst others. The band will be
appearing at this years Riot Fest in Chicago, before undertaking a
coast-to-coast tour of the USA throughout September and October
