The Cribs Releasing New Album In May + Spring 2012 Tour Dates

Following a spate of festival appearances and the notable departure of legendary The Smiths / Modest Mouse guitarist Johnny Marr from their ranks, British indie rockers The Cribs are getting set to release their fifth full-length album on May 8 via Wichita Recordings. Entitled In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull, the LP finds the Wakefield natives back in their classic trio lineup with 14 new tracks, the names of which you can check out after the jump.

For a little taste of what this new record will sound like, you can grab its first Steve Albini-produced single "Chi-Town" right over here. The Cribs will be hitting the road in April and May for North American and UK tours, respectively, stopping by Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg on April 13. A limited number of tickets to the North American shows will be available for presale on the band's Facebook page beginning this Thursday (February 16), so hop on that goodness.
