Arctic Moneys' new album will be "more poppy" than their last.

The group will release 'Suck It And See' on June 6 and drummer Matt Helders has promised the 12-track record will be more accessible than their last effort, 2009's 'Humbug'.

He said: "Some of the songs are a bit more instant. A bit more poppy, certainly than 'Humbug' was.

"It's enjoyable for us and the listener. And it's maybe a bit more easy going. Not easy listening, but with a few poppier tunes. But in an interesting way."

The 'Brianstorm' rocker - who is joined in the band by frontman Alex Turner, guitarist Jamie Cook and bassist Nick O'Malley - also revealed before going into the studio, the band had a more clear direction of how they wanted the record to sound than they did when they began working on 'Humbug'.

He added to NME magazine: "With 'Humbug' we recorded 25 songs and narrowed it down afterwards. This time we had a clear idea of where we were going before we even went to the studio."
