Arctic Monkeys Hit The Road!
When Sheffield, England quartet, Arctic Monkeys, released their first single "I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor" in late 2005, the song immediately shot to No.1 in the UK singles chart. Their infectious sound - a blend of catchy pop and garage band edginess - quickly garnered them an enthusiastic fanbase in the UK and abroad. With the release of their seventh album on the horizon, led by the single 'There'd Better Be a Mirrorball', it looks like the group are ready to return to the mainstream - we can't wait!
About Arctic Monkeys
By distilling the sounds of Franz Ferdinand, the Clash, the Strokes, and the Libertines into a hybrid of swaggering indie rock and danceable neo-punk, Arctic Monkeys became one of the U.K.'s biggest bands of the new millennium. Their meteoric rise began in 2005, when the teenagers fielded offers from major labels and drew a sold-out crowd to the London Astoria, using little more than a self-released EP as bait. Several months later, "Whatever People Say I Am", "That's What I'm Not" became the fastest-selling debut album in British history, entrenching Arctic Monkeys in the same circle as multi-platinum acts like Oasis and Blur.
