Beating Pulp, Shed Seven and The Cribs

Arctic Monkeys have been voted the best Yorkshire band of all time by NME readers.

The band were part of a shortlist conducted by the NME office, which included Pulp, The Cribs, Kaiser Chiefs and Def Leppard.

Arctic Monkeys were voted the best Yorkshire band of all time with 48% of the votes. Pulp came in second place with 16%, Shed Seven came in third place with 14% and The Cribs followed, with 11% of the votes.


Alex Turner recently updated fans on when to expect Arctic Monkeys’ next album, saying that there’s “no rush” to start work on it.

Arctic Monkeys released their fifth album ‘AM’ in 2013, with Turner more recently teaming up again with Miles Kane for The Last Shadow Puppets’ second record ‘Everything You’ve Come To Expect’, which was released in March of this year.

Speaking to Radio X recently, as reported by DIY, Turner was asked if there were any plans for the Sheffield band’s sixth full-length. Turner replied: “No, there aren’t really, Not yet. But there will be at some point. I mean, we’ll see with that. No rush.”
