Libertines co-frontman Carl Barat has said the band will hopefully debut some new material at their reunion gig in Hyde Park this summer.

Barat told UK newspaper The Independent, "I'm seeing Pete next week and we'll get the guitars out. Hopefully we'll come up with some new songs for Hyde Park."

He added, "I've always loved Hyde Park. It's nice to play in the heart of London and it's got that great heritage of shows from The Rolling Stones to Blur."

The Libertines, who split in 2004, will be joined on the day by The Pogues, Spiritualized, Maximo Park and The Enemy. Tickets for the gig, which takes place on July 5, go on sale at 9.00am on May 2.
