â€œYou’ve still got the big choruses and raw energy The Cribs are known for, but now with the flourishes and panache the onetime Smith is known for. I’d even say Ignore the Ignorant finds Johnny Marr sounding like Johhny Marr for the first time since his days in The The. It’s a really strong record.” – Brooklyn Vegan
â€œIf you’re looking for some serious headrush 1-2-3 punch combos of addictive songs back to back to back, look no further than the opening three cuts on Ignore the Ignorant. They’re catchy as all hell, but with little twists and turns that sink in your ear and make them seem less obvious.” – Faronheit
“Compared to Morrissey’s oblique but resonant lyricism, the Jarmans deal in provocative sound-bite slogans, but the Cribs prove themselves worthy successors to a lineage of cheekily erudite Britpop that spans David Bowie through to the Smiths to Pulp.” – Pitchfork
Following their recent Stateside sojourn, where they appeared on The Letterman Show, as well as a trio of shows in New York and Los Angeles, The Cribs are pleased to announce a quick return across the Atlantic. The quartet will arrive this January, for a handful of shows with Adam Green and ex-Be Your Own Pet frontwoman, Jemima Pearl.
To hold you over till the new year, the guys have also released the video for new single, “We Share The Same Skies”. Check out the cut-and-paste gem below:
