Carl Barat Says Libertines Reunion Likely To Happen in 2011

    Let’s be honest: Carl Barat is like the Picasso of working the NME to his advantage. If he wants to drum up publicity for his new Dirty Pretty Things album, he says the Libertines will never reunite. If he wants to promote his solo album, he says Libertines will reunite in 2011, a date far enough away to think it won’t happen, but close enough for the NME to report it like it’s a definite fact and dates have been announced. They haven’t. So, when you’re trolling around on music news sites today and see “Libertines to Reunite in 2011!!!!!!” posts all over the place, remember: No they’re probably not. [NME]
