Arctic Monkeys Make Black Album

Arctic Monkeys' new album will sound like Black Sabbath.

The 'Brianstorm' hitmakers have revealed their eagerly-anticipated third musical offering will have a sound similar to Ozzy Osbourne's iconic heavy metal group.

Frontman Alex Turner claims the band - also consisting of Jamie Cook, Matt Helders and Nick O'Malley - were inspired to pen several tracks after partying at last summer's Latitude Festival in Southwold, Suffolk.

He said: "We went to Latitude, ripped it up, wrote on our faces and eventually wrote some songs. We spent the first day there working on the most complicated riff you've ever heard. It goes round in seven-and-a-half time. We used it in the end, it's on an intro. It was like Black Sabbath."

The band - from Sheffield, South Yorkshire - confirmed they plan to release the follow-up to 2007's 'Favourite Worst Nightmare' before they headline the Reading and Leeds Festivals this August.

Arctic Monkeys are also due to perform at a string of European festivals in Poland, Croatia, Norway, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands this summer.
