Ignore the Ignorant is the first full album The Cribs have made with ex-Smiths’ guitarist Johnny Marr, who became a formal member of the group in February 2008. The Cribs recorded Ignore the Ignorant in Los Angeles with producer Nick Launay, who has worked with such artists as Yeah Yeah Yeah’s, Arcade Fire, Supergrass and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, among many others. Live dates have just been confirmed for Los Angeles and New York City, and these will be the first American shows with guitarist Johnny Marr added to the line-up.
