Earlier this year, Klaxons pulled out of all their scheduled summer festival appearances to focus on recording their new album.
The band, who have kept a low profile of late, revealed at the start of 2012 that they had begun recording the follow-up to ‘Surfing The Void’. They 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 pencilled in a number of other slots, but shelved all dates to focus on recording the album.
