Arctic Monkeys is in full spirit that they quickly release a new album in the wake of the success of their latest LP, "Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I Am Not". The UK rock act has planned an April 23 international release date for its second album, "Favourite Worst Nightmare."
The album's first single, "Brianstorm," is scheduled to hit the store by April 16. "It's quite a bit heavier in some places -- there's also some really nice songs on there," Billboard.com quoted producer James Ford as saying. "Some of the songs maybe (have) more depth to them. (It's) maybe not quite as instant as the first one."
In addition to the new LP, Arctic Monkeys will unveil new material during an April 27 set at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, Calif., and have also begun confirming European festival appearances for the summer.
