The Libertines To Reunite

The Libertines will reunite in 2010.

The British rockers - who performed together on Saturday (16.05.09) at London's Rhythm Factory for the first time in five years - now plan to make their reunion permanent and record together next year.

When Carl Barat was asked if the band - also consisting of Pete Doherty and Gary Powell - would perform any more impromptu concerts in the future, he said he wouldn't dismiss the idea, but wants to hold out for a more concrete reunion.

He hinted: "I can't rule it out, but I'd rather save it. That's not to say I won't get on stage with Pete at some point soon.

"Next year is a new year. We'll see what happens."

Carl and Pete are currently working on their solo careers before they regroup.

Pete recently said: "I've written and recorded a solo album, there's probably another one on the way. There's an amazing Babyshambles record coming too and The Libertines is going to happen."

The Libertines formed in 1997 and released two critically-acclaimed albums. The band had a volatile history, centered around Pete and Carl's love/hate relationship. They split up in 2004 shortly after Carl forced Pete to leave because of his heroin addiction.
