Sorry, Arctic Monkeys Aren't Releasing Any Singles Ahead of their New Album

28 days ago   |   By Noisey

A couple of weeks back came the sort-of-expected announcement that Indie Rock Christmas would be taking place on May 11, 2018, as this is when Arctic Monkeys will release their sixth album, Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino.

If you are wondering how
When I Think of You in a Castle
, one of the great rock records of 2018, came to be, grab some popcorn and I'll tell you the tale. In the land of Chicago, the guys of

Having formerly released two exciting psychedelic rock EPs in the past couple years, this should have been a breeze for the six friends. But somehow the stakes seemed higher as they contemplated a full-length album. As the night dragged on, the group popped
Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure into the VCR, hoping to...
