The Arctic Monkeys are working on new music, and drummer Matt Helders has given strong hints that they’ll release it sometime this year. He didn’t give any official dates, but it makes a lot sense because the band recently announced a string of U.S. tour dates.

Hard work pays off when you’re musicians on the road touring and making an album, and Arctic Monkeys seem to have this mentality. Although they’ve only recently released their album, Humbug, in 2009 and touring in support of the successful album, they’re eager to go back into the studio and record some new material while it’s still fresh in their minds.
As fans of Humbug, we can’t help but encourage this strong effort of theirs to release new music. Of course, there aren’t really any specific details about the upcoming album yet since they’re still on tour but the little bit of news back from November is a tad more fleshed out now.

Maybe it’s just the Theraflu talking, but these last couple of weeks have been killer on-sale weeks for the concert industry. The spring and early summer are already filled with enough tours and festivals to test the endurance of any cash strapped concert goer. This week will continue to test your true definition of “cutting back” as there is something for just about anyone, may they be hipster metal guy, hipster indie guy, hipster festival guy or non-hipster screaming Twilight fan.
We are off…

Didn’t the Arctic Monkeys just release an album this past summer? The answer is yes they did but according to BBC.co they’re already gearing up for their fourth studio release. The group’s third disc Humbug is still hot on shelves, and their currently on tour promoting it so why are they so eager to jump back into the studio?

Willie Nelson AND Smokey Robinson? ArcticMonkeys AND David Guetta? Is there anyone NOT releasing an album this week? French house DJ, Guetta, recently had a No 1 single with the Kelly Rowland collaboration “When Love Takes Over,” and had another one with “I Gotta Feeling”, co-written with the Black Eyed Peas. The later can be heard on top 40 radio stations about a hundred times a day. Judging from the first two singles off the album, the House DJ’s new album is definitely worth your attention. Pop sensation Colbie Caillet is trying to prove to the world that she is not a one hit (“Bubly”) wonder with her new album while Jewish musician from New York City, Matisyahu, is singing reggae songs about his religious devotion.
Here are the albums coming out August 25th:

What a collection of new music coming our way: the reggae-punk of The Slits, cool, ambient grooves by Zero 7, The Black Crowes’ bluesy rock n’ roll, indie-rock ala’ Arctic Monkeys, melodic pop/rock from the smooth-singing Richard Hawley and, well, who knows what Jack White has up his sleeve for a rumored solo album.
The punks are back! The ladies of the notorious punk-reggae band The Slits have returned. On October 6 the influential punk rockers will release Trapped Animal, their first album in more than 25 years. This year also marks the 30th anniversary of The Slits debut album Cut, released on Island Records.
