Arctic Monkeys have confirmed that they won't be appearing at any of this summer's festivals across Europe.

The band will appear at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California in April, but have ruled themselves out of appearing at any of the other summer festivals.

Speaking on BBC Radio 1, frontman Alex Turner responded to a question about whether we're doing any festival shows this summer aside from Coachella by saying: "We're not doing any, I don't think".

The band also confirmed that they will release a new single in coming weeks, but denied that they'll be putting out a new EP.

Turner said: "I don't think it'll quite be an EP. We're about to go and tour with The Black Keys and we're going to put out a new tune before we go and do that."
