Following in the footsteps of Mat Healy and the 1975s, the Arctic Monkeys have just announced theyll be opening up a number of pop-up stores.

Its a busy time for the band, as theyre getting ready to release their next album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, as well as gearing up to head off on tour.

And now the quartet have just revealed that fans will be able to buy exclusive merch on 11 May – the day their album is released.

The pop-up shops will be appearing world wide in places including, New York City, Sydney, Paris, Berlin, Tokyo and of course their hometown Sheffield.

According to their website unique and limited album and merchandise items will be available at the stores, and hopefully their new album will be on sale too!


Just recently guitarist Jamie Cook opened up on the first time he heard what Alex Turner had laid down in a number of demo tracks for Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino.

From what he revealed, it sound as though Alex has taken a new direction with their sound, but despite changing things up, it sounds like their new stuff will be just as good as what were used to hearing.

Jamie told Rolling Stone: I was blown away by the direction Alex had gone in. It took a few listens to even begin to, like… It was just, like, “Shit. What do we do with this?”

Alex was asked the same question, with an added extra of questioning whether Alexs move to drop dramatic guitar riffs was a fuck you gesture.

His response was the only response wed expect from the front man as he said: Maybe theres a time and place for both that guitar riff and a fuck you gesture.
