Hint: One of them rhymes with schmeminem.
Between awards and a killer performance, the Arctic Monkeys had a rockin’ night at the BRIT Awards. Check out all their best pics here.
The Arctic Monkeys kicked off the festivities at the 2014 BRIT Awards as the opening performers this year.
The Arctic Monkeys are doing something different with this track and my first thought was that they’d been listening to a lot of Black Keys – not a bad thing! Seems I’m right: they’re on tour together kicking off March 2nd.
Metallica selected the acts for this first year of Orion Music + More where they will perform Ride The Lightning and The Black Album in their entirety. Other performers include Best Coast, A Place To Bury Strangers, Arctic Monkeys, Modest Mouse, F*cked Up, The Black Angels and Liturgy.
I’m noticing a theme here…the past few Arctic Monkeys videos have all centered about drummer Matt Helders as some kind of great American badass; here’s another one where he breaks out of prison. From 2011’s Suck It And See.
Foo Fighters, Bjork, Arctic Monkeys, Band Of Horses, MGMT, TV On The Radio, Skrillex, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts and Foster The People are tapped to play the second year of Lollapalooza in Chile and the inaugural year of Lollapalooza Brazil.
The B-side to the “Suck It And See” single, “Evil Twin” picks up where that video left off. Monkey’s drummer Matt Helders and ladyfriend keep rocking out with guns, bondage gear and motorcycles.
Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner stopped by the KEXP studios to play a few of their songs. Very simple, just him and the guitar. His voice sounds amazing.
That’s quite a name for a song. In fact, they liked it so much they named the album the same thing. All the naughty bits have been edited out of this version, but there is also a NSFW clip available.
Here’s the new one from Arctic Monkeys’ most recent release, Suck It and See. The band settled on “Suck It and See” after nixing titles “The Rain-Shaped Shimmer Trap”, “The Thunder-Suckle Fuzz Canyon”, “The Blondo-Sonic Rape Alarm”, and “Thriller”.
