The Cribs have pushed back the release date of their Night Network album due to COVID-19.
Night Network, The Cribs' follow up to 2017's 24-7 Rock Star Shit, was expected to arrive on 13 November, but due to the coronavirus, the band has had to delay the LP release by a week.
The Cribs wrote in a statement posted to socials yesterday (27 October), "Due to the COVID outbreak affecting the record pressing plant that we are using for the Night Network LP, unfortunately the album will not be ready by its original release date of November 13th...however, we have hustled and hassled and have managed to keep the delay down to just one week - so Night Network will now be released on NOVEMBER 20TH."

The LP was recorded at Foo Fighters' Studio 606 in LA last year after Dave Grohl offered the studio to The Cribs during a chat backstage at Foo Fighters' Manchester's Etihad Stadium show in 2018. Ryan Jarman recalls, "Dave was just like, ‘Forget about all that business stuff, just come out to LA and make a record at our studio’ – Dave made that offer to us."
