Dirty Pretty Things Debut Gets US Release on Interscope

    Often forgotten on this side of the pond due to the headline-grabbing, drug-addled theatrics of Pete Doherty is the fact that former Libertines Carl Barat and Gary Powell are doing just fine without him in their new group Dirty Pretty Things. The band released their debut album, Waterloo to Anywhere, to modest fanfare in The UK last month and has been steadily touring across their home country.

     

    While Dirty Pretty things hasnt made much of a splash in the American market as of yet, this could soon change, as the band has finally secured a North American release for Waterloo. The album will be released August 8 on Interscope records, coincidentally the same day the band launches their first mini American tour (youd swear these things happen on purpose.) Before all this though, the band will do the whole summer festival thing throughout Europe. Tourdates are as follows:
