The concert will be promoting their second album Everything You’ve Come to Expect, which is set to be released on April 1.They have already teased the album with first single Bad Habits and announced several summer festival dates,

It has been a long wait for fans - the band's first album was 2008’s The Age of the Understatement and Turner's latest offering was 2013'’s AM with the Arctic Monkeys.

Everything You’ve Come to Expect is produced by James Ford, who has worked on several Arctic Monkeys albums.

In an interview with the NME, Turner gave fans an idea of what to expect from the new record:

“I think the last record ended up being just one thing. We talked about Scott Walker a lot and our record became perceived as a homage to that sound. This one, in my head, doesn’t wear its influences on its sleeve as much as the first one did. We were definitely listening to a bit of Isaac Hayes this time, but it was less of a big deal.”

He also suggested a third Puppets album might already be written.

Turner said he is planning a trilogy and explained they “wanted to write the second and third parts before we released the second”.
