Klaxons have been told to re-record parts of the second album after it was rejected by their record label, Universal, NME.COM can reveal.

The had been working on the follow-up to 2007's 'Myths Of The Near Future' with producer James Ford, but after rumours began circulating that all was not well with the sessions, band member Jamie Reynolds confirmed that they had been sent back into the studio.

"Yes [we were asked to re-record part of the album]," he confirmed to NME.COM. "Because we've made a really dense, psychedelic record. We've made a really heavy record and it isn't the right thing for us, I understand and know that. First and foremost we're a pop band. I haven't thought about that for a long time, and now it's in the forefront of my mind."

Reynolds said that now they had embarked on writing new songs to add to the album. "We've got another four weeks," he said. "At the end of those four weeks everything should be dealt with."

He also said that Klaxons could be making a surprise appearance at Glastonbury in June.

See the new issue of NME, out now, for the full interview with Reynolds.
