Get stoked for what’s to come with their timeless debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not: It’s been three years since we’ve heard from the Arctic Monkeys. After touring in support of their fifth studio LP AM in 2013, the band members redirected their focuses to side-projects. But now, the British rockers have shared the news that they are indeed writing a new album. While only in the beginning processes, this news is very exciting as the band returns home to Sheffield, England to write the new album.According to a tweet from BBC’s Shamir Masri, “Alex Turner [said] during an interview for BBC Sheffield [that] they are coming back to Sheffield to pen a new album… It IS happening!” While the process might be slow, it’s definitely in the works — as the tweets below indicate. The boys are back in town!Arctic Monkeys back in Sheffield. Buzzing man gotta get the new album out now @monkeysquote #arcticmonkeys #sheffieldissuper pic.twitter.com/TVvPmEx2Ti— Tom (@1892AnfieldRoad) December 9, 2016
