Arctic Monkeys Break From Studio
 
Arctic Monkeys have said that they will probably take a break from recording until 2013.
From The Interview"I don't really write on the road any more. We come up with a few ideas on soundchecks and that but I have written too many terrible lyrics touring around. As yet there is no plan to return to the studio next year, we're keeping our heads down."

If it means they'll write another album as great as their first, I can wait.

Well, the interview also says how Alex finds it hard to write like that anymore lyrically at least.

Sigh. Hellcat Spangled Shalalala was alright, but I think it's wise that they'll be taking a break.

I am not amused. >.>

Ah, this sucks.

Suck It & See is on par. Best young band out there no question.

Hmm, the lyrics have been the worst part of the last 2 albums. Seems like he lost his witty flavor ... glad they're taking some time off from recording. Been disappointed lately.

My thoughts exactly.

I'm kind of glad that they're taking a break from recording. Since he realize his lyrics have been bad lately, then hopefully he won't record a song unless the lyrics are actually good.

As long as I get an album in 2013 for sure, I can deal with this.

Disagree. I think even if he had those same lyric tendencies on tap they wouldn't have fit well with the instrumental material that was on the last two records.

you're all nuts, suck it and see is a fucking masterpiece,

Love all of their records for different reasons so it's a bit sad to hear this but look forward to more material in the future.

I loved his lyrics on Humbug. That's their best record IMO.
