Infamous rock and roll scoundrels the Libertines are back to kick up a new racket on All Quiet On The Eastern Esplanade, with eleven tracks that showcase their collective songwriting talent.

The beginning of All Quiet On The Eastern Esplanade goes back to September 2022, when the Libertines' Pete Doherty and Carl Barât retreated to the serene surroundings of Port Antonio, Jamaica. Sequestered from the distractions of the world, the pair found themselves caught up in a creative fervor, laying the groundwork for what would become the new album. Joined by bandmates John Hassall and Gary Powell, the band converged at The Albion Rooms, their own hotel and recording sanctuary nestled in the coastal town of Margate in the UK.

Under the guidance of Grammy-nominated producer Dimitri Tikovoï (The Horrors, Charli XCX) and additional production and mixing by Dan Grech-Marguerat (Lana Del Rey, Liam Gallagher, Paul McCartney), the band launched into an intensive four-week recording spree, capturing both their spirit and synergy. The sessions culminated in a burst of creativity, with the finishing touches completed at La Ferme de Gestein Studios in Normandy over a seven-day period.

The album's first single, "Run, Run, Run," sets the tone with its infectious punk rock energy, and its message about the pursuit of liberation despite life's trials and tribulations. For Carl Barât, the track summarizes the band's perpetual quest to break free from the shackles of routine and expectation, drawing parallels to the protagonist of Bukowski's seminal work, Post Office. As the album title suggests, All Quiet On The Eastern Esplanade serves as both a homage to the band's cherished surroundings and a nod to their literary influences.

Reflecting on the band's evolution, Barât emphasizes the significance of the new album, describing it as a culmination of their collective experiences and growth. Likewise, Doherty echoes his sentiment, expressing a sense of fulfillment and anticipation for the future. With All Quiet On The Eastern Esplanade, the Libertines have come full circle, and given themselves new life.
