Fans reckon Arctic Monkeys may be recording their new album after Matt Helders’ Instagram post

There are microphones, so it must be true, right?
A series of Instagram photos has sparked speculation that Arctic Monkeys are holed away working on their new album.

As NME points out, Matt Helders has shared a photo of his drum kit surrounded by microphones, which every eagle eyed Arctics fan knows is enough to start the buzz.

Add to that posts by photographer Daniele Cavalli last month featuring the band hanging out in Los Angeles – including Alex Turner at the piano with recording equipment in shot – and you’ve at the very least got a good rumour brewing.

Fans on Reddit seem pretty convinced as to what is going on, but there’s no official word on if they’re actually laying down the follow up to 2013’s ‘AM’.
