Babyshambles' Slow Progress

Subscribe to Babyshambles alerts

Babyshambles are slowly working on a new album.

The rockers' attempts to return to the studio to record a third LP have been hampered by frontman Pete Doherty's solo commitments but drummer Adam Ficek is confident they will get the record completed.

He said: "We're in the studio, in and out in between Pete's solo shows and festival dates.

"We're just getting together new songs for the next album."

Adam also admitted he thinks a Libertines reunion is likely after Pete was joined on stage by his former bandmates at a charity show last week.

He added to BBC 6 Music: "I'm sure The Libertines will get together at some point.

"Obviously there is a lot of history between them both but I don't really get involved with personal relationships and take sides.

"I just let them get on with it. They put on a great show so who knows."

The Libertines were disbanded by co-frontman Carl Barat in December 2004 following ongoing difficulties in his relationship with Pete, who was battling heroin addiction. 

Following their split, Carl went on to form Dirty Pretty Things, who split last October.
