Arctic Monkeys return to the dancefloor
Arctic Monkeys have confirmed their comeback by announcing their first tour date in four years.
The band said they will be headlining at Firefly Festival which takes place in Delaware in the US this June.
The rockers from Sheffield, who took to Twitter to reveal the big news, have hinted in magazine interviews that 2018 could also be the year of their sixth album.
Nick O’Malley, the band’s bassist, said in an interview with magazine The Ride the band had secretly met up and started recording.
He revealed that he hoped a new album would be released in 2018 and that “if it isn’t we’ve got problems.”
Fans have taken to Twitter to express their excitement over their long-awaited return.
One fan said: “Arctic Monkeys announcing their live return has just made 2018.”
Another added: “Leaving work to the news that Arctic Monkeys are back has honestly made my week.”
The indie group fronted by lead singer and songwriter Alex Turner, reached the top of the charts with all of their five albums.
The band have had massive hits, with I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor and Do I Wanna Know being two of their best known songs.
The four members will accompany stars such as Eminem, The Killers and Kendrick Lamar as the music festival’s headliners in June.
