(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
