Everything Everything have confirmed that they are recording new music after sharing an update with fans via social media.

A tweet captioned, "We are back in the studio" was posted from the band's official Twitter account yesterday (September 1) followed by another which read "More of a GMTV drumsound" #studiotalk" and another of a picture of bass player Jeremy Pritchard.

Late last month (August) the band also tweeted: "Working on something amazing. We miss you."

Speaking to NME earlier this year, Everything Everything frontman Jonathan Higgs said of the album: "We want to be more instinctive, do it straight from the top of our domes." He added that touring Europe with Foals inspired some of the band's new material after Yannis Philippakis of the Oxford band played Higgs a collection of old prison recordings.

Higgs said of the singer's input: "The penny dropped: I thought, 'what more do I need?' Nearly all the new songs are just drums and vocals."

Everything Everything released their last album 'Arc' in 2013. It followed their debut album 'Man Alive', which came out in 2010 and was nominated for the Mercury Prize the following year.

Meanwhile the band are set to stage an artist residency at Manchester Central Library.

The band will host the Chaos To Order event at the newly re-opened venue, bringing in a host of other artists and creatives for a week of "events and experiments which will challenge perceptions of libraries." The band – who are from Manchester – will be working with the Brighter Sound organisation on the project, which is part of the Library Live series of events.
