UK rockers The Cribs are returning to WA, playing Badlands Bar on Tuesday, May 1.

Known for their fiercely DIY approach to recording and touring at a time when indie music in the UK was going through a huge commercial boom, The Cribs always stood out from their contemporaries as an altogether more uncompromising prospect.

Releasing their first two LP's 'The Cribs' (2004), and 'The New Fellas' (2005) on UK independent label Wichita Recordings, the band quickly built a loyal and devoted fan-base which lead to Q Magazine describing them as "The biggest cult band in the UK".  After the breakthrough success of their third LP ‘Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever’ (2007). The Cribs were joined by legendary Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr as a full-time member of the group for their fourth full-length ‘Ignore the Ignorant’ (2009). Following Marr's departure in 2011, The Cribs returned with their critical high-point "In the Belly of the Brazen Bull" (2012)and then "For All My Sisters" produced by Ric Ocasek (Weezer, Bad Brains) which was released in 2015.

Fast-forward to June of 2017, The Cribs surprise-released their first official new single "In Your Palace" recorded by legendary Nirvana producer Steve Albini, the track finds the band returning to their punk roots, with Albini taking them "closer to capturing the magic of their rough 'n raw live show than ever" (DIY Magazine) resulting in "A feral return, laced with barely constrained energy" (Clash Magazine).

The seventh album quite brilliantly titled – ‘24-7 Rock Star Shit’ is a bit of a paradox. It’s the quickest thing they’ve ever recorded, done and dusted in five days compared to a relatively leisurely seven for 2004’s self-titled debut, yet it’s also been six years in the making.

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 band are heading  to Australia This April/May for the first time in almost 5 years and will be thanks to Gun Fever will be appearing at Badlands Bar for their only WA show – Tickets on sale now.
