Arctic Monkeys Announce 2018 Festival Dates

UK rockers Arctic Monkeys have come out of hibernation to announce festival dates at most major festivals throughout the world. Barcelona’s Primavera Festival kicks off the string of shows in June.

No specific news of a new album release as of yet, except that it looks to be due sometime this year (which would be their follow up to 2013’s giantly successful AM, which is also the biggest-selling vinyl album of the decade).
