Arctic Monkeys hint at 2013 album release

Arctic Monkeys could release their fifth studio album later this year, according to drummer Matt Helders.

The Sheffield indie rockers have not released any new material since 2011's Suck It And See, and Helders has dropped the strongest hint so far on the band's plans for future releases but claims that they are not currently working with Josh Homme.

Speaking to NME at the NME Awards, the drummer said: "I have been in the desert … with motorcycles. Not with Josh [Homme], no. The band's just been working together, the band working on our own so far, writing and stuff. There's no time deadlines or anything like that for release."

When questioned on the sound of the new album, Helders simply replied with "2013" and went onto explain that there was a strong likelihood that the record would be released before the end of the year.

Suck It And See was a soaring success for Arctic Monkeys with the band scoring a number one in the UK Official Charts Company. They then went on a world tour which saw them play in Stockholm, Sweden, for the first time in over a year.
