The Cribs, four hipster-taunting punk-rock kids from Wakefield, England, will digitally release their fourth album, Ignore the Ignorant, on September 8. (Those who pre-order it on iTunes can do so starting August 25, and will geta deluxe version featuring 20 live bonus tracks).
If you’re a fan of the Cribs, then you’ll be very interested to see how the addition of former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr (more recently of Modest Mouse) will influence their intensely catchy sound. The anticipation (in my mind, at least) has been growing since Marr joined up with the three brothers in February of 2008.
The first single off of Ignore, “Cheat on Me,” does indeed sound a little different from tracks that we heard on 2005’s New Fellas and 2007’s Men’s Needs, Women’s Needs, Whatever. Check it out below and let us know if you’re as excited about them as we are.
