THE CRIBS Rock star shit

UK Rockers The Cribs are set to make their return to Perth on Tuesday, May 1 hitting up Badlands Bar. 

As well as being a former band of Johnny Marr‘s (The Smiths), the Cribs are known for their fiercely DIY approach to recording and touring, from a time when indie music in the UK was going through a huge commercial boom.

Releasing their first two LP’s The Cribs (2004), and The New Fellas (2005) on an independent label, the band quickly built a loyal and devoted fanbase which lead to Q Magazine describing them as “The biggest cult band in the UK”.

In 2017, The Cribs returned to their punk roots by teaming up with the legendary Steve Albini, for their seventh album 24-7 Rock Star Shit, with Albini taking them “closer to capturing the magic of their rough ‘n’ raw live show than ever.”

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 one priority, and have become main stage perennials at festivals such as Glastonbury, Reading/Leeds, Coachella, Lollapalooza and many more.

The Cribs play Badlands Bar on Tuesday, May 1. Tickets on sale now.
