[Watch] Arctic Monkeys - "Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?" (Official Video)

A few weeks ago we posted a leaked track from Arctic Monkeys titled "Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?". Today, the track has an official video to accompany it as the next single from AM and you can watch it below. It sees Alex in a pub with Matt and Nick to begin with having a quiet night out. Alex takes a little turn after a trip to the bathroom and begins to trip hard taking his mission to the streets. The rest you can see for yourselves below. Don't drunk/drug text guys or you'll become just like "Alex Band Guy".

AM is set for released on September the 9th via Domino but you can grab the single right now on iTunes.


[Listen] Arctic Monkeys - "Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?"

Another new Arctic Monkeys track has hit the web and it's a good'un. The track will feature on their highly anticipated new release AM and it goes by the name of "Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?". Is it me or has Alex and the gang got a thing with asking questions at the moment? The track feels a little hip-hop in its beat but remains every bit as Monkeys as we've come to expect, both lyrically and musically. We've already heard "Do I Wanna Know?" from the album along with the B-Side, "2013", and this is another great addition to the catalogue. See what you make of it below via Tumblr.

AM is set for release on September 9th via Domino.


[Listen] Arctic Monkeys - "2013"

Arctic Monkeys have unleashed the B-Side to their single "Do I Wanna Know?" and it's a foot stomping, chicken neck worthy tune titled "2013". You can stream it in full below. Their highly anticipated new album, AM, will be out on September 9th via Domino and to support that they've just announced a UK arena tour set for October, dates of which can be found over here, although I'm pretty certain all dates sold out in minutes you may still be able to grab a few seats in the nosebleeds for a few venues.

2013 is the year of the Monkeys.


[Watch] Arctic Monkeys' Full Glastonbury 2013 Set

It's Saturday which can mean only one thing, well, going with the past two weeks trend... Another Arctic Monkeys post. Last night the Sheffield band performed their second ever headline show at the world famous Glastonbury Festival and boy did they deliver. Revisiting the Pyramid stage, following on from their 2007 set, they played a hit laden set featuring cuts from their back catalogue along with opening the set with their new single "Do I Wanna Know?", rocking the 180,000 strong festival to its core. They were even joined by Miles Kane for set closer "505" and you can re-live the entire show below. The band have also recently enrolled the help of Dead Sons' lead singer Tom Rowley, or as Alex refers to him; "the white ranger" on keys for the current tour.

The band's new album, AM, will be out on September 9th via Domino and to support that they've just announced a UK arena tour set for October, dates of which can be found over here.

[News] Arctic Monkeys Announce New Album, 'AM'

As I predicted on Saturday Morning, Arctic Monkeys have just out of the blue announced their fifth studio album, AM, which will be released on the 9th of September. It features twelve tracks, three of which we've already heard. The new single "Do I Wanna Know?" along with "Mad Sounds" and "R U Mine?" will be joined by another 9, some of which star some interesting sounding guest spots. Queens Of The Stone Age's Josh Homme, former member of The Coral, Bill Ryder-Jones and Elvis Costello's drummer too, Pete Thomas. It's been produced by James Ford, and co-produced by Ross Orton at two Los Angeles studios: Sage & Sound Recordingand Rancho De La Luna, Joshua Tree. 

Mark your calendars and get excited. I'm sure we'll have plenty of previews before then. Also you should be extra pumped this week as the band are set to headline Glastonbury this weekend and it'll be televised on the BBC. Check out the new single and tracklist below.

[Watch] Arctic Monkeys Perform Live at Best Kept Secret Festival

Last week we awoke on Saturday to a brand new track from Arctic Monkeys that they'd debuted in Sweden. On Wednesday the band released "Do I Wanna Know?" out of the blue ahead of more festival dates this weekend. So how about on this fine looking Saturday morning you treat yourself to some pro-shot footage of them performing at Best Kept Secret last night in the Netherlands. They even open with the new single straight off the bat. It's 30 minutes of some if their biggest hits via 3Voor12. I'm expecting an album announcement is on the not to distant horizon, but for now it's great to see these boys delivering night after night on the live circuit. Very excited to see their Glastonbury performance next weekend.


[Watch] Arctic Monkeys - "Do I Wanna Know?" (Official Video)

Well isn't this a nice Wednesday treat. We've recently heard two brand new tracks from Arctic Monkeys via the magic of shoddy mobile phone recorded live performances in the shape of "Mad Sounds" and "Do I Wanna Know?". The latter of which has now been offered up as a single and you can download it over here. Both tracks are expected to appear on their new album which they've hinted will drop in 2013. No official word yet but as this has just come out of the blue, I'm thinking good news is on the horizon.
