The Libertines have released a heartfelt statement on the 13th anniversary of their biggest hit ‘Can’t Stand Me Now‘
The song was released back in 2004 on 9th August and was the first single from the group’s self-titled second album. ‘Can’t Stand Me Now‘ proceeded to peak at Number Two on the UK singles chart and is still deemed a classic to this day.
Now, some 15 years later the band have shared a clip to their Facebook page with the caption: “13 years ago today we released ‘Can’t Stand Me Now’, a song about the rough seas you sometimes have to weather with the people you love. All these years later and we’re still fucking here, we’re still playing live and working on new songs. A big part of that is you guys and we love you for it. Thank you for last two decades and especially the last few years, letting us come back for another jig aboard the Good Ship Albion.”
They continued: “Plenty seas behind us, plenty seas ahead… see you when we break land soon.”
