Although there are no UK shows currently, is hoped further dates will be announced in the near future.
What should we expect?
The band is currently completing their seventh studio album.
Drummer Matt Helders told BBC’s Drumathon that it was almost ready: “Yeah, pretty much, yeah. It was a bit disjointed how we had to do it, and there are bits to finish off, but yeah, it’s all in the works.”
He continued: “I think by the time we get everything together it’ll be next year. Hopefully we can get out and tour next summer.”
As for the sound of the forthcoming LP, the drummer explained: “We tend to always move it on a little bit. For us, because we’re so involved in it, it always makes sense.
“[The albums] always kind of pick up where the other one left off in a way. It makes sense when you think about it in the context of the last record. But we always do try and do something a bit different – it’s kind of hard to describe. You can tell it’s the same band.”
It will follow previous albums Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not (2005), Favourite Worst Nightmare (2007), Humbug (2009), Suck It and See (2011), AM (2013) and Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino.
The band were spotted at a recording venue in Suffolk earlier this year.
