Arctic Monkeys title new album Suck It and See because they're so damn controversial and working-class and shit

UK/European Readers, please read here:

Whoa, can you guys believe that it’s only been two years since THE Arctic Monkeys, one of the most fab bands in recent history, released their last epic tour-de-force record of dominating awesomeness? And now, even though they could easily be resting on their laurels as one of the most large-looming and culturally pervasive bands in a generation, they’re already hitting it hard again with a new album, entitled Suck It and See! (Really!) The new record was once again produced by local bloke James Ford of Simian Mobile Disco (he helped out a bit on the last one too, alongside that talented yank Josh Homme), and with a title like that, I think we can expect that the snide, wise-ass, street-tough attitude for which we all know and love will be ratcheted up another notch! In fact, since you probably can’t wait, you can check out the video for the lead single. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty chuffed! The bloody thing is off to record shoppes on June 6 via Domino, followed by some tourdates across the pond and here at home. So let’s all make our plans now to drive on the left side of the road to go pick up a copy! Hip, hip, hooray!

So, apparently that one “Let’s Fuck on Dance Floor” band is still a thing. I can’t understand a damn word they say cuz they’re all British and shit, but they have an album coming out June 7 called I’m Hot Blooded, Check It and See or something, and they’re playing some random shows here. Not P4k though. So whatevs.
