Washington, Apr 14 : English rocker and Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty is to continue working on the band's new album while he serves his 14 weeks in prison.
Doherty, whose drug use and legal problems have been exposed, was jailed on April 8 for "breach of time-keeping, non-compliance of his order and using different drugs".
His colleagues have, however vowed to stand by him while he serves his time and not let his prison sentence affect work on their forthcoming third album.
The band is sending all of their recordings to London's Wormwood Scrubs Prison so Doherty can contribute.
"We will send Pete the first nine burns (recordings) so he can work on them in there," Contactmusic quoted drummer Adam Ficek as saying.
"It will give him something to keep him occupied, keep him focused and remind him that outside we're all holding the fort for him. And also that as soon as he gets out it will be business as usual," he added.
