Arctic Monkeys Return for North American Tour

Arctic Monkeys Return for North American Tour
Last Friday (March 4), we kicked off the weekend with a surprisingly crunchy new tune from the Arctic Monkeys. The song, "Brick by Brick," is the first to leak from an upcoming full-length outing from the group. While no new information has surfaced over the past couple of days as to when they will be unleashing some more material, the Monkeys sound as if they're primed to bring the new stuff on the road real soon; they've just announced a quick North American tour.

A press release for the band lists a handful of dates scattered across the continent this May. Canadian fans will be treated to two performances from the rockers in Toronto and Montreal. Check out the North American dates, as well as some European ones, below.
