Arctic Monkeys look set to take a short break, after revealing that they have no plans to return to the studio next year. Alex Turner, the frontman of the band also revealed that his writing technique has changed a lot from album to album as his life continues to change.
Alex explained, "It's hard to do the old chip shop rock 'n' roll. After you've done it once, you don't sort of hang around that many chippies anymore. I think it's natural, I couldn't ever write about my surroundings in the same way as I did back then."
Turner added, "I don't really write on the road anymore. 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.” A return to the studio is not yet known but do not be surprised if the boys change their minds and get back to recording next year.
