Following the release of their sixth studio album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino in May, Arctic Monkeys return with their new single ‘One Point Perspective’ and announce they will be returning to Australia for a mammoth run of arena shows in February and March 2019.
Arctic Monkeys will kick things off in the west with a show in Perth, before crossing over to Melbourne and heading up the east coast with shows in Sydney and Brisbane with the final leg across the Tasman in Auckland.
Joining them at all shows will be friends and collaborators Mini Mansions, the LA trio featuring members of Queens of the Stone Age, and The Last Shadow Puppets.
The news comes fresh after the band announced a new two-track digital bundle, featuring a previously unreleased b-side ‘Anyways’, out 30 November (through Domino/EMI Music Australia).
The band have also shared Warp Speed Chic, a short film directed by Ben Chappell and originally shown as part of the band’s AM:ZM exhibitions in London and Sheffield, alongside the photography of Zackery Michael.
Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino debuted at #1 on the ARIA Album Chart and became their sixth consecutive #1 debut in the UK, as the country’s fastest-selling vinyl in 25 years.
The album was also nominated for the Mercury Prize.
