THE Arctic Monkeys will return to Australian shores in January 2012.

While in town for the Falls and Southbound Festivals, the indie rock favourites will play headline shows in Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane. This will be the band’s third Australian tour and their first since 2009.

Their 2006 #1 selling debut album Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, produced the hugely popular ‘I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor’, which went straight to #1 in the UK and cemented their reputation in the press as one of the best new bands to watch.

They followed up with two more #1 albums; Favourite Worst Nightmare (2007) and Humbug (2009) and are one of the greatest loved bands of the last decade.

Arctic Monkeys’ widely acclaimed fourth studio album, Suck It And See (out now through Domino/EMI) reached #4 on the ARIA Charts and #1 on the UK Charts. It includes current hit singles ‘Don't Sit Down 'Cause I've Moved Your Chair’ and ‘The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala’.
