Arctic Monkeys Censored Stateside
The band have been telling Xfm the title 'Suck It And See' hasn't gone down too well abroad...
Matt and Alex from the band have told Xfm the title of their new album "has not travelled very well".
The phrase 'Suck It And See' is causing a stir in the United States especially.
"They think it is rude, disrespectful they're putting a sticker over it in America in certain stores, big ones," Alex told Xfm's John Kennedy.
They told John that they wanted to master how they would play the songs live before putting them down in the studio, and reckon it means more of a return to their debut, 'Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not'.
"The first one obviously was done pretty much like that 'cause we'd been playing it around before we recorded it. That was something we wanted to try and do" Matt and Alex explained.
"Most of the production side was done in London before we went and that allowed then sessions to be about getting the best recording, getting the sounds right."
'Suck It And See' was done with the help of producer James Ford, who also worked on 'Favourite Worst Nightmare' and 'Humbug'.
