Rockers Babyshambles live in fear of being eclipsed by other bands on the British music scene if they fail to harness the potential of troubled frontman Pete Doherty.
Drummer Adam Ficek believes it is make-or-break time for the band - but hopes the group's strong musical ethic will make their new album a success with Doherty on board.
He says, "We're lucky enough to have another stab and if we don't get it right this time, there are so many great bands out there that'll just overtake us.
"(But) everybody is maturing in the band and we're getting stronger as a unit. Musically, we're stronger than we've ever been."
