The Cribs Return With New Single and Video ‘Come On, Be A No-One’
English trio the Cribs are set to release their new disc ‘In the Belly of the Brazen Bull’ on May 8 in the U.S. and to get fans in the mood, as if they need coaxing, the band just released a video for the first single ‘Come On, Be a No-One.’ The new album marks the band’s first since guitarist Johnny Marr left last year and judging by the new video, a return to form for the Jarman brothers.
The gritty video gives fans backstage access to one of the Cribs recent gigs. It intertwines live video clips of the band performing with crowd shots and back stage shenanigans, check it out below.
Cribs frontman Ryan Jarman opened up in a recent interview with NME about the past year and the personal struggles he encountered including a psychological illness that really set him back. “I was quite ill last year, during the writing of the record, and it cost me a lot,” Jarman opened up. “I had real self-loathing issues. Things are getting better…the last couple of year’s haven’t been easy.”
The Cribs will kick off a handful of U.S. tour dates that kick off at the beginning of April, potentially playing some of their new material.
The new disc is currently up for pre-order with several different packages including a ‘Super Deluxe Bundle’ which includes entry into the ‘Golden Laminate’ contest. The owner of the ‘Golden Laminate’ is given free entry to any Cribs show for the rest of their life, sweet deal!
