Arctic Monkeys have scrapped plans for a new album this year and claim they are still too wrapped up in the success of 'AM'.
Arctic Monkeys have scrapped plans for a new album this year.
The 'Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High' rockers had initially intended to make a quick follow-up to 2013's critically-acclaimed LP 'AM', but now have no definite plans to return to the recording studio in the near future.
Bassist Nick O'Malley told NME Magazine: ''We did have the chat but I don't think it's going to be happening. There are no plans for another record.
''I think people might want to forget about the Monkeys for a while.
''But who knows? We'll have a bit of time off and someone will say, 'Fancy doing another one?'''
The group think it is important to take some time off as they fear getting burnt out and ''psychotic''.
Nick said: ''We've been doing this constantly for quite a while and it's important to have a break. Otherwise you burn out and get a bit psychotic.''
And frontman Alex Turner says he is still to ''wrapped up'' in 'AM' to begin thinking about what the group do next.
He said: ''I don't know what happens after the tour ends. I'm still pretty wrapped up in 'AM'. We're still slapping each other on the back for that one.''
