The Cribs come to Bristol’s 02 Academy on October 25.

LEEDS-BASED indie outfit The Cribs have released details of autumn shows throughout the UK, including a one-night-only gig at Bristol’s O2 Academy on October 25.

After their sixth album For All My Sisters reached the UK top 10, the Jarman brothers (Ryan, Gary and Ross) played a career-defining show at Glastonbury, before earning rave reviews for huge slots at T In The Park and Reading and Leeds festivals. They now look set to complete another year atop the indie music scene.

Most will remember The Cribs for their 2007 album Men’s Needs, Women’s Needs, Whatever that spawned hit singles Moving Pictures, Men’s Needs and I’m A Realist, but their new, critically acclaimed material has proven that rock and roll – or at least guitar music – is not dead yet.

Now without legendary ex-Smiths man Johnny Marr, who joined them for their third album, the brothers’ new album has seen lead single Burning For No One named Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe’s hottest record in the world, while an early 2015 tour of the UK sold out a few of the country’s more intimate venues.

Though not yet hitting the heights of contemporaries Arctic Monkeys and Foals, The Cribs still boast a massive following and tickets for their Bristol date are likely to sell fast.

Tickets, priced £18, are available from or from the box office on 08444 772000. Doors open at 7pm.
