About Arctic Monkeys Merch

Arctic Monkeys are an English indie rock band from Sheffield, hailed as one of the first bands to use social media to gain mainstream attention, and best known for their first single ‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor’. Formation: In 2001, both Alex Turner and Jamie Cook received guitars for Christmas and proceeded to teach themselves how to play. The formed the band with school friends Andy Nicholson, Matt Helders and Glyn Jones, however Jones left soon after the formation.

The Artic Monkeys performed their first gig at The Grapes in Sheffield. As they began to manufacture demo CDs, their fan base set up a MySpace account – without notifying the band.

A photographer from Sheffield, Mark Bull, filmed one of the live performances from the band and aired ‘Fake Tales of San Francisco’ on his own website. On 30th May 2005, the Artic Monkeys released their debut single, ‘Five Minutes with Arctic Monkey’, which featured a rerecording of ‘Fake Tales of San Francisco’ and ‘From the Ritz to the Rubble’ as a B-Side. The release led to them appearing at Reading Festival on one of the smaller stages, yet they drew in a huge crowd and the band were signed to Domino Records in June 2005.


Following the signing of their record deal, The Arctic Monkeys released “I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor” on October 14th, 2005, and it debuted at the top of the UK singles chart. They followed up this success with the release of “When the Sun Goes Down” on January 16, 2006. This second single received similar success as their previous entry. On January 23, 2006, The Arctic Monkeys released “Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not.” The album received universal acclaim and topped the UK album charts and Billboard’s independent album charts. On April 18, 2007, the Artic Monkeys released their second studio album, “Favorite Worst Nightmare.” Once again, the album received glowing reviews and reached the seventh spot on Billboard’s 200 list.

The band then embarked on a world tour, which was recorded and released on November 3 as “At the Apollo,” which was largely well received. “Humbug,” the Arctic Monkeys’ third studio album, was released on August 19, 2009. While the album received universally glowing reviews, it dropped to number 15 on Billboard’s 200; however, it still topped the US Independent Albums chart and came in fourth on the US Top Alternative Albums chart. As with all previous entries, it topped the UK albums chart. Between January and February 2011, the Arctic Monkeys got to work recording material for their fourth studio album. On its release on June 6, 2011, “Suck It and See” performed just as well as their previous efforts, earning high praise and good charting. When their fifth studio album, “AM,” was released on September 6, 2013, it topped 15 album charts worldwide, four of which were part of Billboard’s Independent and Alternative charts. It also reached the sixth spot on Billboard’s 200.
