Arctic Monkeys Biography
The Arctic Monkeys have been a model of consistency, English attitude, and rock n’ roll. Arctic Monkeys tickets have been selling out since their record shattering debut album and are still going strong. The Arctic Monkeys started out in 2003 in Sheffield, England with Alex Turner on vocals/guitar, Andy Nicholson on bass, Jamie Cook on guitar, and Matt Helders on drums. The band spent 2 years grinding out performing in DIY spaces and releasing homemade demos that they would hand out at shows. The Arctic Monkeys signed to independent label Domino Records and finished recording their debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, at Chapel Studios in Lincolnshire in September of 2005. The record became the fastest selling debut album in UK chart history, selling over 300,000 copies in the first week. The record was released a month later in the US and entered at No. 24 on the Billboard album chart. Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not became the second fastest selling indie rock record in the US and after the success of bands like The Strokes and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Arctic Monkeys broke post-punk revival into the charts. The success was spearheaded by the hit single “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor” which was followed by “When The Sun Goes Down” early the following year. Around this time bassist Andy Nicholson left the band and was replaced by current bassist Nick O’Malley. The band also embarked on their first big tour in support of their debut album, selling out Arctic Monkeys tickets across the UK and the US. The band wasted no time in returning to the studio. The band's second album, Favourite Worst Nightmare, was released in April of 2007, a week after the release of accompanying single "Brianstorm". Like its predecessor, Favourite Worst Nightmare also went straight to No. 1 in the album charts. Led by the airplay of other singles “Teddy Picker” and “Fluorescent Adolescent” Arctic Monkeys headlined the Glastonbury Festival in June, 2007. After a brief hiatus during which Alex Turner toured and recorded with his side project, the Arctic Monkeys returned to the studio in late 2008. The following year the band released Humbug. The much anticipated third release was met with positive acclaim but with far less hype and record shattering chart positions. Humbug rather marked a note of consistency with the band as other post-punk revival bands faltered with their later releases, the Arctic Monkeys remained true to their roots. With another tour and loyal fans buying Arctic Monkeys tickets whenever they come to their city. The band repeated this formula in 2011 with Suck It and See, their fourth full length album. The album garnered modest success but supplanted the band as rock and roll folk heroes with Arctic Monkeys tickets becoming a festival essential instead of just a buzzworthy act to check out. In 2013 the Arctic Monkeys released their 5th full length record, AM. The album received acclaim and attention the band haven’t seen since their debut. With their singles “R U Mine?” and “Do I Wanna Know?”. With a surge in popularity and the band going back out on tour, Arctic Monkeys tickets are once again the must have item to have this summer for loyal rockers and new fans alike.
