Arctic Monkeys‘ new album ‘Suck It And See’ has been deemed “too rude” by some American supermarkets and will be sold with a sticker over the title.
The band, speaking to XFM, said a number of major US supermarkets had told them the album’s title was “rude and disrespectful”.
Singer Alex Turner said of the Stateside reaction to the new album’s title: “They think it is rude, disrespectful and they’re putting a sticker over it in America in certain stores, big ones.”
The band also revealed they wanted to recreate the live feel of their 2006 debut album ‘Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not’ during the recording process for their new LP.
Turner added: “The first one obviously was done pretty much like that [live] because we’d been playing it around before we recorded it. That was something we wanted to try and do again.”
