The Arctic Monkeys are an English indie rock band. Band members are Alex Turner (lead vocals, lead guitar), Jamie Cook (rhythm/lead guitar), Nick O’Malley (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Matt Helders (drums, backing vocals). They formed in 2002 in England. Although they are considered part of the post-punk revival in the UK, they are notable for being one of the first bands that came to major popularity nearly exclusively through the Internet. Their self-titled debut album was the fastest-selling debut album in UK history, beating Elastica’s record. Although they are known as indie rock for sure, they tend to slightly change their style of rock for each album. Make sure to see these rising stars during a rare trip to Chicago!
