Pete Doherty has said he and his Libertines co-frontman Carl Barat are as close as ever following their reunion this month.

Speaking to NME, the Can't Stand Me Now singer said: "We're a unit now. And Carl's my brother. There was a time when I'd have died for him, and that turned into a time when I wanted to kill him. But now I'm ready to die for him again."

The Libertines reunited earlier this month for a massive show in London's Hyde Park, having split in 2004 and reformed briefly in 2010 for Reading and Leeds festival shows.

They have since announced they will play three gigs at London's Alexandra Palace in September, to be followed by a string of European dates.
