TheArctics, fresh off of the set of funny man and TV host, David Lettermen, where they performed to a US audience ‘Do I Wanna Know’ from 2013’s hugely successful album ‘AM’, and having just been announced as 2014’s opening Brits Act, this year doesn’t look like its going to slow down any time soon for the Northern Monkeys.
Their next release from AM is due in March, is a song about a space aged lover named ‘Arabella’, and offers up more of Alex Turner et al’s distinctive guitar riffs and rhythmic vocals which have been pivotal to their stratospheric rise over the last few years.
The band embarked on a sold out US tour this week, including a gig at NYC’s renowned Madison Square Gardens. They then cross the pond back to Londinium to play two sold out massive gigs at London’s Finsbury Park in May, before crossing the Irish seas to hit up the Emerald Isle for a special outdoor show scheduled to take place at Dublin’s Marlay Park, with support from Jake Bugg, Miles Kane and Brighton boys, Royal Blood.
Looks like they’ll be no monkeying around for the lads with a schedule as packed as that…full tour dates listed here and a link to a digital copy of ‘Arabella’ here…
