The unstoppable Monkeys have just announced dates for their U.S. and Canadian shows this spring, including a return to New York City’s open air Summer Stage in Central Park on May 24th. Pre-sale and ticket information is available at

Arctic Monkeys, made up of Alex Turner, Jamie Cook, Nick O’Malley  and Matt Helders, haven’t performed in North America since taking on the country in the wake of the release of Humbug, their incendiary third album. Since they’ve been busy finishing their latest album, Suck it and See (to be released June 3), fans can expect to hear new songs, including the tempestuous “Brick By Brick”, released as a video on their website late last week.
