Today, The Libertines—a British quartet in part responsible for rejuvenating garage rock in London—announced the impending release of their third album, Anthems for Doomed Youth. Slated to drop September 4, the project will be the band’s first LP of new material since 2004’s self-titled full-length.

The news comes not long after the group’s surprise Glastonbury appearance. Tonight, “Gunga Din,” Anthems‘ lead single, will hit BBC Radio 1. Grammy-nominated Jake Gosling, who has worked with acts ranging from Ed Sheeran to Wiley, is at the helm of the album as executive producer.

Addiction and infighting played major roles in the band’s decade-spanning hiatus. The Libertines issued some comments regarding their forthcoming opus:

“Dearest one and all, the day has finally arrived, to announce the unveiling of the new Libertines record – Anthems For Doomed Youth. We do so with the utmost pride and jubilation. She (the record) will be available on 4 September. It would be inappropriate for us not to mark this occasion with a celebration of the highest order, so we will be indulging in a week of folly around the UK in which you will all be invited to partake. Just by signing up via www.thelibertines.com, not even a record in your pocket, you will be the first to hear of these activities. You absolutely do not want to miss these announcements. It is hard to express the extent of our enormous happiness and gratitude for what we have achieved since regrouping, from Hyde Park to Thailand, to Glastonbury, it has been the most inspiring and fantastical of journeys for which we thank you all.”
