Arctic Monkeys truly need no introduction whatsoever, so there won't be one. But yes, they've just announced a UK tour for November, doing the usual arena stuff because well, they need to play quite large venues with all those fans, don't they?
They've just scored their third successive number 1 album with a slightly changed direction in Humbug, which was partly produced by Kyuss/QOTSA/Desert Sessions etc man Josh Homme. It is pretty good, actually.
