Arctic Monkeys prepare for busy summer

And we want you to tell us your views on the revamped band

Arctic Monkeys are preparing for their summer festival dates following the departure of bassist Andy Nicholson – and we want to know how you feel about the new developments.

The remaining three members will now hit the road for a busy summer with Nick O’Malley, who stood in for Nicholson while he was absent from the recent tour of north America. Nicholson‘s absence American tour was blamed on “fatigue” at the time, but now he has officially departed.
