Arctic Monkeys at Summerstage in May (more by Dana (Distortion) Yavin)
Arctic Monkeys

Arctic Monkeys, who just headlined Summerstage, are back for another North American tour late this summer and early fall. First they'll play a run of August dates which include Lollapalooza and Outside Lands. Then, after returning to Europe for a few festivals there, the Monkeys will head out on another North American run in September and October with Smith Westerns opening most of the dates. The tour doesn't hit NYC at the moment, but the band will play Atlantic City, NJ on October 14 at Showboat Atlantic City. Check Arctic Monkeys' website for pre-sale info and ticketmaster for general sale, which starts Friday (7/15) at 10 AM. Hopefully the band will find time to stop in NY while they're here.

Arctic Monkeys also recently made a video for Suck It and See track "The Hellcat Spangled Shalala." The video was directed by Focus Creeps, who were also the duo behind the acid visuals of Arctic Monkeys' "Don't Sit Down 'Cause I've Moved Your Chair" video.

Check out both of those videos and all tour dates below...

Where's that guy that thinks Alex Turner is the best songwriter of his generation? I'm sure he's excited about all this.

130pm = smith westerns street team member

thanks buddy but we know when we hear something if its good or not.

If you think they're good, post us a link from youtube or something.

gurantee 95% of people will say they're not good.

on the other hand, arctic monkeys are good live.

sorry 1:40 I'm not that interested in changing your mind on Smith Westerns. Also try not to use "we" as if you somehow speak for everyone on BV

hahahha look at 154pm can't even post a video of smith westerns cause you know everyone will just be like really? you think they're good.

good luck buddy.

in 5 years maybe when you grow up, you'll understand that smith westerns is just another band you wish you didn't listen to back in the day....

Alex Turner is probably the greatest songwriter of his generation. No one can touch him

A legit music deal-of-the-day style website is giving away 2 3-day passes to Lollapalooza and $500 cash. They're giving away 2 prize packs and i highly recommend hopping on it. heres the link, slices of home. http://www.facebook.com/#!/groopease?sk=app_242484089111033
