It's been nearly half a decade since Arctic Monkeys
came out with new music. In 2013 they released their excellent album AM
- it kind of showcased their ability to move from spastic punk rock to sleeker rock with pop sensibilities. Back in 2016, singer Alex Turner announced that the band's hiatus ended and they had began working on their sixth album. Today, they've announced that album, and it's called Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino.
It also looks like Turner has a mustache now, which initially caught me off guard but now I think I'm into it. The album was produced by Turner himself along with James Ford and will be released on May 11th. The band is embarking on a tour starting next month on May 5th at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles. All dates here
