Two Door Cinema Club have said they are planning to write "stadium songs" for their second album.

Speaking to, the Northern Irish trio said they are thinking bigger than the "small pop songs" that appear on their debut album 'Tourist History'.

Guitarist Sam Halliday said of their second LP: "It's going [to sound] bigger. The first album's great in the sense that it's small pop songs that are fun and we don't want to move away from that, but at the same time you've got to progress."

He continued: "We want bigger riffs, more anthemic songs and bigger melodies. We just want to experiment. I feel a lot of our songs on the first album are similar in structure. We want to experiment and find new stuff."

Bassist Kevin Baird added: "If you want to play stadiums then you've got to write stadium songs."

Two Door Cinema Club play their biggest UK shows to date next month, headlining the O2 Academy Bristol on June 2 and London's O2 Academy Brixton on June 3.
