The Libertines' Carl Barat Joins New Band

The Libertines’ Carl Barat has joined a new band, London four-piece Eyes On Film.

Barat will be playing a one-off show with the group in mid-August before continuing to provide a second guitar for the foreseeable future. According to a statement from Eyes On Film’s management, “Barat will inevitably add to the scuzzy, filthy electro rock sound the band have honed and made their own, giving it a truly commercial, 21st century edge.”

But according to ClashMusic, “The collaboration is pretty loose, with Carl Barat simply wanting to help out some friends.” He will make his Eyes On Film debut Aug. 16 at Proud Galleries in London.
