Arctic Monkeys’ latest release, last year’s Humbug, was co-produced by Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme and was the band’s third consecutive UK No. 1 and U.S. Top 25 album, spawning a number of successful singles and EPs (all with quality B-sides, a tactic that's fueled their chart rise), including their latest, My Propellor.

They play the Madison Theater Friday. Get show details and Sound Advice here.
