The Cribs have nearly finished recording their fourth studio album, which they are aiming to release in September.

The band spent several weeks recording in Los Angeles with producer Nick Launay (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Nick Cave) this spring at his home studio in Laurel Canyon.

"We were in LA quite a long time," bassist/vocalist Gary Jarman told NME.COM. "We recorded our first album in a week, but we spent the best part of three months doing this album.

"We recorded everything live and we'd finish working around 1:00 or 2:00am when all the bars in LA were closed, so there was no reason to go out. It was sort of like a social experiment," he said.

The band have finished recording all 12 tracks set to appear on the album, Jarman said, and have mixed all but two of them, which his brothers and fourth band member Johnny Marr, formerly of The Smiths, are planning to mix in London next week.

Track titles include 'Last Year's Snow', 'Cheat On Me', 'Serve Your Secrets', 'Stick To Your Guns' 'Ignore The Ignorant', 'We Were Aborted' and 'We Share The Same Skies'.

He added they are still trying to decide how to order the tracks on the album, which he said has been extremely challenging. "I have so many napkins from bars with different tracklistings on them," he laughed.

The band have not yet been able to agree on the title of the new album. "We have different opinions," he said. "This record's gonna follow us around for the rest of our lives so we're labouring over the title."

Jarman said that the band had good chemistry working with producer Launay. "Nick's worked on some really good records and dealt with intense bands. He's up for different ideas and got the best out of us. I've had some self-confidence issues in the studio with my voice since I had surgery. He got us to work harder and have belief (in ourselves) and got the best and most natural performances."

Jarman said that The Cribs intend to embark on a UK tour in September and will then perform in Japan. They are hoping to tour the US before the end of 2009.

Cribs announce new album title and tracklisting

The Cribs have revealed exclusively to NME.COM that their fourth album will be titled 'Ignore The Ignorant'.

The album, the first recorded with guitarist Johnny Marr as part of the band, will be released on September 7 and will be preceded by a single, 'Cheat On Me', on August 31.

'Ignore The Ignorant' was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Nick Launay, and frontman Ryan Jarman explained that the title was partly inspired by the British National Party winning a seat in the recent European Parliament elections in Yorkshire.

"There were a bunch of titles we could have gone with including 'Ignore The Ignorant'," he told NME.COM. "Then in Yorkshire the BNP got a seat and we were like, 'Fuck.' It's harsh to accept that it can happen in your town."

The tracklisting of 'Ignore The Ignorant' will be:

'We Were Aborted'
'Cheat On Me'
'We Share The Same Skies'
'The City Of Bugs'
'Hari Kari'
'Last Year's Snow'
'Emasculate Me'
'Ignore The Ignorant'
'Save Your Secrets'
'Victim Of Mass Production'
'Stick To Yr Guns'

My peeps, did you listen to the new album? Different direction, but really really good.

I look forward to their show @ The Roxy in November. I'm surprised it hasn't sold out since it's comparatively tiny to their last venue in L.A. (El Rey)
