The Arctic Monkeys have won two awards at this years Q Awards.

The band were up for Best Live Act, Best New Act, Best Track and Best Album and won Best Album and the Peoples Choice Award for most votes polled this year.

<i>We've had such a great year and are really enjoying ourselves. The Q Awards carry a lot of prestige amongst musicians, so we're chuffed to get best album and the People's Award.</i>

The band are also well on their way to releasing their new album (next year) and have been speaking to Uncut;

<i>Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner has exclusively told Uncut that he's been working hard on new material despite the distraction of a whirlwind year, it's been the "best year of our lives" he says.

Turner has been writing lots of new songs, he says it's like a compulsion, "I can't stop writing songs, I don't know what else I'm going to do."

Turner adds that the song tempo as illustrated on million-selling debut album "Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not" will be slower on the new one.

The Monkey's front man even contemplates that some of the songs will be played acoustically, he says "I've written quite a few slower ones- there's 13 or 14 songs, maybe a few more, in different states."

He names one of the new Arctic Monkeys' tracks as "Brain Storm" and head of Domino Records Laurence Bell who's already heard the track, describes it as "very bright and metallic - it'll shock a few people."</i>
