Klaxons have pulled out of all their scheduled summer festivals appearances to focus on recording their new album.

The band, who have kept a low profile over the past 12 months, revealed last month that they have begun recording the follow-up to 'Surfing The Void' and are rumoured to be working with LCD Soundsystem mainman James Murphy and The Chemical Brothers on the album.

Klaxons were formally scheduled to play Spain's Bilbao BBK Live festival in July and were thought to have penciled in a number of other slots, but have shelved all dates to focus on recording the album, reports efestivals.co.uk.

As well as announcing the withdrawl of Klaxons, Bilbao BBK Live has also added a host of new bands to its line-up including Warpaint, Glasvegas, The Kooks, Snow Patrol, Noah And The Whale, Band Of Skulls and Tribes.

The festival has so far confirmed it will be headlined by Radiohead and The Cure.
