Arctic Monkeys to take break from the studio until 2013


The Arctic Monkeys have revealed that the band does not plan to record on the road, or even anytime next year. Last weekend, the band headlined V Festival and they’re now preparing for their full UK arena tour coming up in October.

Frontman Alex Turner had this to say:

“I don’t really write on the road any more. We come up with a few ideas on soundchecks and that but I have written too many terrible lyrics touring around. As yet there is no plan to return to the studio next year, we’re keeping our heads down. It’s hard to do the old chip shop rock’n’roll. After you’ve done it once, you don’t sort of hang around that many chippies any more. I think it’s natural, I couldn’t ever write about my surroundings in the same way as I did back then.”
