Re-live Arctic Monkeys’ huge Royal Albert Hall show with NME‘s photos of the show here.

Earlier this month, rumours of new Arctic Monkeys material began surfacing after drummer Matt Helders was pictured in a recording studios.

Images posted on Instagram by the photographer Andreas Neumann show Helders sitting behind a drum kit in a Los Angeles studio, surrounded by a selection of keyboards and amplifiers.

Neumann offered little context for the photo, but eagle-eyed fans noticed that he also tagged Arctic Monkeys’ Instagram account in the snap – prompting speculation that they could be back in the studio.

Arctic Monkeys’ last album was 2018’s ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’, which NME called “a product of searingly intelligent design” in a four-star review.
