Arctic Monkeys to start work on third album

Postby josefettwalker » Wed Jul 02, 2008 1:05 am

Arctic Monkeys are set to reconvene this month to begin writing their third album.

Speaking to BBC 6Music at the Glastonbury festival, guitarist Jamie Cook said that the work on the band's second album, 2007's 'Favourite Worst Nightmare', would take place in the their hometown of Sheffield.

"We are gonna get our fingers out next month [July]," he said. [We'll] get back in his [Alex Turner, singer/guitarist] room in Sheffield and start writing some tunes."

When asked about what direction the band might take for the album, Cook was unsure.

"I don't know yet, we could go any way. I'm excited," he said. "[At the] end of last year when we had been touring for a long time, we just needed a bit of a rest. But we are eager to get back in."

He added that it would be good to get back together, after the changes in the bandmembers' lives over the last year.

"It's kind of weird," he explained. "Al's moved down to London now and we haven't seen each other for a bit. But we all keep on meeting up.

"[At] the end of last year we had seen each other constantly for four years. Sleeping on a bus and waking up next to each other, it was like, 'I do not want to see you for about... for a long time!' But then you are kind of weirdly missing each other."

wrong topic to post that on, maccsix. but the reason may be that a lot of people don't actually like 'the bad thing' all that much. well, most people i've talked to say they don't like it, anyway.

""Monkeys: We'll be rock kings


Published: Today


ARCTIC MONKEYS are talking tough for their third album.
Drummer MATT HELDERS, says the lads have been influenced by rockers QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE and that the new album will be louder and heavier than anything they've done before.

He reckons the new stuff will be more in the style of their hit single Brianstorm and the heavier half of second album Favourite Worst Nightmare.

Matt said: "Not 'heavy metal' heavy — just more aggressive.

"We're all into Queens Of The Stone Age. When we got to play with them and see them live it gave us a kick up the a***.

"They are an inspiration, they show you can still have top tunes and loud, heavy songs, too.

"It's a lot more fun playing loud music — simple as that."

And if Matt's got anything to do with it, you can also expect lots of lengthy drum solos.

He said: "I've been trying to think of beats I can do to start the record off. Of course I want to start off the album with drums — it's an ego thing!"

Matt told NME the lads will go into the studio again when Arctics frontman ALEX TURNER finishes his tour with side project THE LAST SHADOW PUPPETS. ""

found it today! :D 8) :D

That made me go 'awwwww' just a little bit inside. Gotta love Cookie <3.


Also, even more excited about this album now that I've read Matt's interview as well!
I fancy you with a passion. You're a Topshop princess, a rockstar too. You're a fad, you're a fashion and I'm having a job tryin to talk to you.
