The Libertines are an Indie Rock, Post-Punk revival band from London, England. They rose to fame in the early 2000's with their two albums, ''Up the Bracket'' and self-titled album ''The Libertines.'' They were famed for their warts-and-all performances and the intense, toxic and all-consuming romantic friendship between their two lead-singers, Carl Barât and Pete Doherty. The Libertines split up in 2004 over escalating problems with Pete Doherty's heroin addiction and the friction that it caused between the four members. Despite this, they have remained consistently popular throughout England and are still regarded as one of the greatest British Bands of all time.
