As the 2014 festival season winds down, so too does the Arctic Monkey’s tour for their 2013 album AM. The band has toured the album extensively in the United States, causing some to remark that the British rock band have finally “broken America.” The band played a headlining set at Reading and Leeds this past weekend, but those are the last confirmed dates for the band in the near future. The band has promoted the new album heavily on their most recent tour, preferring to play the newer tracks rather than delve into the band’s lengthy back catalog.
AM is the fifth full length studio album from the Sheffield rock band. The album debuted at #1 in the UK charts, making the Arctic Monkeys the first band on an independent label to have five consecutive #1 albums.
