Babyshambles and Parlophone are thrilled to announce that the third Babyshambles album Sequel To The Prequel will be released on September 2nd. Preceded by a first single Nothing Comes To Nothing - due for release on August 26th - the album was recorded at Question Du 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.
As Peter Doherty told the NME last week, "I don't want this to be half arsed, I want to get up there and really fu*king smash it out. Babyshambles aren't back, this band has always been here". On hearing the final version of the single Nothing Comes To Nothing, Peter stated, "it actually made me cry."
