Arctic Monkeys heading back to the studio
U.K band Arctic Monkeys are still on tour promoting their latest album Humbug. But as soon as the tour is over, they’ll head back to the studio to work on their next record. Now that’s dedication!
chatted with the lads and it was revealed that they’re heading right back to record the new album.
“We’ve said we’ll stop touring this album and we’re eager to start working on new stuff again, not have time off again,” said drummer Matt Helders.
Helders also went on say that the band was eager to have Crooked Vulture/Queen of the Stone Age Josh Homme produce the new album (like he did with Humbug) but wasn’t sure if their schedules would line up.
“It’s hard to say, both parties are up for it but they have a lot going on around the time we’d need to be recording,” said Helders, “but we’d like to.”
So what’s the new album gonna sound like? Frontman Alex Turner talked about how the band is taking one step at a time with the new LP.
“We haven’t tied our shoelaces yet, so it’s hard to say [what it would sound like] there’s a few things we’ve been playing around together and we’ve spoke about how we might go about it,” Turner said. “We haven’t started walking yet, the laces are undone, never mind dancing.”
Arctic Monkeys still have a few more shows in the U.S. this April before wrapping things up stateside.
