The Cribs Announce New Album 'For All My Sisters', Stream "An Ivory Hand"

English indie rock band The Cribs have confirmed they will release their sixth studio album titled 'For All My Sisters' on March 23rd.

The follow-up to 2012's 'In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull' and the 2013 compilation 'Payola', was recorded in New York at the Magic Shop studios with producer Ric Ocasek, and will be available on double 12” vinyl, CD, deluxe CD/DVD and digitally. 

The release sees The Cribs moving from Wichita to their new home of Sony RED after a decade. About the move, bass player Gary Jarman told BBC: "For us it was really, really hard, we haven’t really spoken about it. It was difficult really, we've been with Wichita a long time, so it was really hard, it was like a break up with a girlfriend. When you are on an indie label, when you have grown together, it’s much more personal. Like I said, it is more like breaking up with someone more than a business thing."

The band have also previewed the album with "An Ivory Hand", pre-order the album here, and get the track instantly.

The Vaccines Announce New Album 'English Graffiti', Share Video For "Handsome"

London-based indie rockers The Vaccines have announced they will release their third full-length album titled 'English Graffiti' later this year via Columbia Records.

The band have been recording their new album with Buffalo, NY-based producer Dave Fridmann at the producer’s Tarbox Road Studio, New York. It’s self-produced, with assistance from Fridmann and Cole MGN. 

In anticipation, they have premiered the video for the album's lead single "Handsome". The single will be out on March 9, alongside b-side ‘Handsome Reimagined’ (Dave Fridmann edit). Pre-order your copy here.

The video was shot in a warehouse in Brooklyn before Christmas. "We wanted to create a video that was a sort of bubblegum ode to cinema and, in particular, Hong Kong kung fu movies. Music to me is entertainment and escapism: we wanted the video to be an extension of that. We wanted to create another world, in which we can play aspirational, heightened versions of ourselves.” Said frontman JustinYoung.
