HAVING just completed a sold-out tour of the UK, Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres have announced a UK and European tour to coincide with the release of their eponymously titled debut album.

A single, mixed by Cenzo Townshend, ‘Who’s Been Having You Over’, is available now when you preorder the album. The video for the single was filmed in Margate and directed by Roger Sargent and is a collaboration with Art Collective, Worship the Ground.

“We believe the act of creating public artworks is visual activism, punk ethics have always been at the very core of its soul,” Pete says.

“We are arming an inactive society with an alternative knowledge, standing up to ongoing vilification by the press and their immoral standards, and to the authorities who encourage the soulless gentrification and social control in our public space, whilst ignoring their duty of care.”

‘Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres’ was recorded at a family home overlooking a fishing village in Étretat Normandy, over four days last summer and was mixed at Urchin Studios (East London).

The album is engineered by Dan Cox (Laura Marling, Thurston Moore, Florence & The Machine) and produced by Jai Stanley (longtime friend and manager).

All the songs from the album were road tested over the last 18 months across Europe at festivals and headline shows.

Songs include the reflective ‘All At Sea’, the raw ‘Punk Buck Bonafide’, the upbeat and playful ‘Shoreleave’, the joyous hymn of liberation ‘Paradise Is Under Your Nose and ‘Someone Else To Be’, Peter’s re-imagining of the Velvet Underground’s ‘Ride Into The Sun’ and Oasis’ ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger.

‘Traveling Tinker’ is an elegy to Peter’s friend Alan Wass and ‘Who’s Been Having You Over’ with dialogue from the 1948 film adaption of Graham Greene ‘Brighton Rock’ and the cheeky poke at his own notoriety.

Peter Doherty has released three album with The Libertines (‘Up The Bracket’ (2002), ‘The Libertines’(2004) & ‘Anthems For Doomed Youth’(2015). With Babyshambles he has recorded ‘Down In Albion’ (2005), ‘Shotter’s Nation’ (2007) & ’Sequel To The Prequel’(2013) and two solo albums ‘Grace/Wastelands’ (2009) and ‘Hamburg Demonstrations’(2017)

Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres are: Miggles (bass), Miki Beavis (violin), Katia DeVidas (piano/keyboards) and Jack Jones (lead guitar) and Rafa (drums).

Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres are Live at The Academy, Saturday, May 4.
