Arctic monkeys drummer Matt Helders said the group was often reluctant to play their old equipment because it sounded like “karaoke”.

In a new interview with comedian James Veitch, Helders said it was better for fans to keep the “memory” of an older performance, rather than playing the track just to meet their demand.

“Some feel good about continuing to play, some feel like we’re karaoke from our own songs,” said Helders of their older album material, including the first album from 2006: ” Whatever people say I am, that’s what I am not. “[It] Feel like a caricature. It doesn’t seem so authentic anymore, I prefer that they just remember a version where we really wanted it, rather than we will do it for you. “

Instead, the group is known for offering re-imaginations of their first songs – including transforming “Mardy Bum” into a slow ballad on the “AM” tour.

But Helders remained shy about following the group after rumored to be hosting a series of big shows in Sheffield next year.

Earlier this month, SJM promoters announced a license application for three shows between June 4 and June 6, 2021 in the city’s Hillsborough Park – with details of the event posted on the park gates.

It is not yet known if the group has started working on the 2018 follow-up “Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino”, But The Helders previously told fans they won’t have to wait “another five years” until the next record as they did between “AM” and “Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino”.

“I think this break was based on various circumstances and it was sort of what we needed at the time. But this is not a model that we will get used to as a group. We like to be in the studio. We want to create albums, ”said Helders.

The group concluded the “Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino” tour at the Estéreo picnic in Colombia in 2019.

Last year, The Helders team up with Joe Carnall of Milburn to release their first album as Good Cop Bad Cop.
