We won’t have to wait five more years for another Arctic Monkeys album – at least not according to drummer Matt Helders.
Speaking to Aussie site Music Feeds, Helders was asked if there’ll be another lengthy wait for new material from the band.
“I don’t think so,” he explained. “I think that break was based on various circumstances and that was sort of what we needed at the time. But it’s not a pattern we’re going to get used to as a band. We like being in the studio. We’re keen on making albums.”
He continues: “We’ll talk about what we’ll do next. There’s no real concrete plan at the moment. We’re all enjoying it a lot, we know we want to do some writing at some point but there’s nothing really. We haven’t really talked about it yet.
“I suppose when we’re back together on these last couple of tours we’ll start thinking about that. But yeah, there’s nothing actually planned yet.”
Before that, Matt is concerned with new project Good Cop Bad Cop alongside Milburn frontman Joe Carnall. They’re set to drop their self-titled debut album at the end of the month.
