Arctic Monkeys - Arctic Monkeys Adjust Single Release After London Fire

Arctic Monkeys' new single will no longer be shipped to stores after rioters set fire to a stock warehouse in London on Monday (08Aug11).
The British rockers were preparing to release The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala next Monday (15Aug11) but their CD inventory was destroyed when the Sony Dadc distribution warehouse was torched.
As a result, only a limited number of vinyl copies will be made available to fans on the band's website, while the song will also be sold digitally online.
A spokesperson for Arctic Monkey's label, Domino Records, says, "While relieved that no one was injured in the incident, we're upset about the loss and destruction of our stock, and thinking of our friends at other independent labels who were also affected by the fire."
Meanwhile, fans have been asked to donate to the LabelLove campaign, which has been established to raise money for the labels affected by the fire.
