It Looks Like Arctic Monkeys Are Recording A Sixth Album
If you're of a certain age and you're a fan of Arctic Monkeys, then their albums have most likely documented your life.
Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not probably had you dancing in parks with bottles of cider and gate crashing parties, as you empathised with Alex Turner's lyrics about nightclubs, police officers and taxi drivers.
One year later Favourite Worst Nightmare would have matched your slow but sure maturity through your fluorescent adolescence, whereby you still showed signs of that scally-wag who took on bouncers, but there were signs of growing up and possibly finding a bit of love.
Eventually, a few years after that, Humbug would be the perfect analogy of your transition from chirpy mid-teen to grumpy late-teen, whereas Suck It and See would do the same as you moved into young adulthood.
Finally, AM represented that time when you'd look back fondly on the past, while you recognised that you've finally come of age.
Despite AM's success, and the many bangers it produced, you can never quite have enough of the Arctics, can you?
Turner took a break from the Sheffield band to reignite the embers of The Last Shadow Puppets with Miles Kane, releasing Everything You've Come To Expect. Now though, after what feels like far too long, it looks as if Turner, Helders, Cook and O'Malley are on their way back.

It was reported that the four had reunited prior to Christmas to begin work on a sixth album, though they've been quiet since then. However, after a series of pictures were posted to Instagram by photographer Daniele Cavalli last month, as well as one from drummer Matt Helders today, fans are licking their lips in anticipation.
'The Agile Beast' uploaded a picture of his drum kit surrounded by microphones, making it look as if he's laying down some beats for an album.
To add fuel to the fire, Cavalli posted a picture of Alex Turner on April 26 on what looks like the same piano that's in Helder's picture.
Let's hope they give us some solid news sooner than later.
Recently Serge from Kasabian told NME that he felt that his band, Arctic Monkeys and The Libertines were the only rock and roll groups about. This might not be entirely true, however, with Kasabian releasing For Crying Out Loud, and a Monkeys' album seemingly on the horizon, they'd certainly be ruling the charts.
