Arctic Monkeys are planning a massive Summer tour you won’t want to miss.

It’s been nearly 5 years since Arctic Monkeys graced the world with their 5th studio album, AM. The critically-acclaimed album produced massive singles such as “R U Mine?,” “Do I Wanna Know?,” and “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?,” and took the English rockers all around the world. After a little over a year of touring, Alex Turner & Co. announced the band would be going on a small hiatus at the conclusion of their AM Tour. All members have gone on to work on solo projects during the hiatus, but now it seems the group is returning in full force. We can only hope this means the band is living up to their word and giving us their 6th LP in 2018.

Today (01/29), the group announced their full festival tour dates, further fueling new album rumors and potential release dates. Seems we may get the album sooner than expected. After a quick scan of the dates, it appears the only place you’ll catch Arctic Monkeys in the U.S. is at Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware. See the full list below.
