It’s what got us through and we’ve definitely have had a bit of a roller coaster of a time with it at times. I think that having each other is one of the things that makes us dogged and diligent and has kept us solid like that.

Gary Jarman has done an interview with Vanyaland in preparation for The Cribs's show at Brighton Music Hall this evening. In the interview, Jarman opens up about playing in an abandoned mill, why family bands don't succeed, and what it was like to record with The Cars' Ric Ocasek.

Joywave Share Part One of Huffington Post Series: Somebody New

"I had DJ'd a goth/industrial club in Rochester several times throughout 2012 and 2013 (with our now tour manager Bud) and the patrons there were always fascinating. I remember playing that 'they will not control/degraaaaaaade us' Muse song and everyone losing their minds. We wanted to capture a bit of that spirit as well."

Joywave has posted the first part of their Huffington Post series, "Why Be Credible When You Can Be Incredible?". The series is a track-by-track guide through the band's new LP, complete with recording tips, industry insights, and an outrageous sense of humor. The first article covers the opener, "Somebody New".

The Guardian has The Cribs recreate a Lionel Richie video

"We asked the punk trio to imitate the singer’s classic video and craft his face out of modelling clay. They got straight to work on their masterpiece" The Cribs - Lionel Richie

What was planned to be a lunch/interview with the Guardian became a hilarious attempt to create a clay model of a soul icon. The band was enthusiastic as always in taking on the task!
