The Cribs follow the release of their eighth album, 'Night Network' with a seasonal single.
'Christmas (All Year Long)', which was previously available as a very limited edition flexi-disc as part of an album pre-order bundle with the ‘Cribsmas jumper’, is available now.
They said: "We decided against going down the syrupy, sentimental rout - this is a big fuzzy stomper, with cheesy lyrics and some over the top guitar solo-ing. That, to us, equals a good time. Which is what we think a Christmas song should evoke. Maybe this isn’t the best year to launch a Christmas song... but whatever, hopefully this helps cheer you up a bit."
The band also recently shared details of next year's tour, to include dates at London's Roundhouse and an outdoor show at Halifax’s historical Piece Hall.
