Carl Barat: The Libertines will reform next year

Former Libertines front man Carl Barat has claimed that the band will reform next year. The band split up in 2004 although Barat and his former band mate Pete Doherty have reunited on a number of occasions in recent years.

Speaking about a potential reunion Barat told The Evening Standard: 'It's not definite definite. I can say 2011, but it's hard to plan The Libertines until next Tuesday. But 2011 is where there's room for that to happen. So if everything's all right, then, yeah, it would be glorious to get on the old jacket and venture forth, into the known.'

When quizzed about Doherty's much publicized drug problems, which was one of the primary reasons that The Libertines disbanded in the first place, Barat replied: 'Well, once he's settled into his grooves, and he's fine, and he's not hurting himself or anyone else, then that's all fine with me.'
