Klaxons are happy they struggled to make their second album.

The British band - who will release 'Surfing The Void' next month -admit they had an easy time with their first album and needed "sorting out."

Singer-and- bassist Jamie Reynolds said: We don't look at any of what's happened as negative. It was important for us to have a slightly difficult time, because we'd been on this breeze, the band was just upwards and upwards and upwards - it never stopped!"

The 'Golden Skans' hitmakers also say working with Slipknot producer Ross Robinson gave them some much needed guidance.

Guitarist Simon Taylor-Davis said the unlikely partnership was exactly what the band needed.

He explained: "He started by studying the drums, then he just slowly prised each one of us apart. He said to Steff Halperin, the drummer, just before the first take 'You are going to die tomorrow and this is what you'll be remembered for - so let's do it!'"

Jamie added: "His is a very dramatic approach to finding the moment and making everything feel completely alive and real."
