Hot on the heels of news of their fifth album, ‘In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull’, reaching Number 9 in the charts - the band’s second successive Top Ten album, following 2009’s ‘Ignore The Ignorant’ - The Cribs have announced details of a brand new single.

The Gary Jarman penned ‘Glitters Like Gold’ is the opener on the album and has already proved to be a crowd favourite, having been performed on the band’s recent UK tour. A somewhat more introspective track than previous outings from this album, ‘Glitters Like Gold’ has already picked up plaudits in radio world leading nicely into a summer of festival appearances both in the UK and further afield.

The band will be returning to North America in early June to continue what has been their biggest US tour to date before heading off to Japan. On their return they head north of the border for this year’s T In The Park festival and late summer also sees an appearance at Reading/Leeds Festival – the band’s full summer festival itinerary is :
