Arctic Monkeys Use Old School Approach on New Album

(Gibson) After working with Josh Homme on 2009's Humbug, Arctic Monkeys have released their fourth album, Suck It and See.

Lead singer/guitarist Alex Turner and drummer Matt Helders recently spoke to Reuters about the new recordings. When asked if Suck It and See had a more a vintage sound, Turner said: "I suppose you could say that. The recording techniques were a little bit more traditional. We did a lot of live takes, with the four of us playing and we wanted to get a human feel to it."

As for U.S. success, Turner said, "Our last album (Humbug) went down pretty well over here, we seem to get a good response to that. We have never had a bad response to any of our records or new albums, it has grown the more and more we have come back over here." more on this story
