It was followed by Favorite Worst Nightmare (2007), humbug (2009), Suck It And See (2011)AM (2013), and Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino (2018).

With global album sales of over 25 million and a digital fanbase of over 30 million followers, Arctic Monkey’s music has been streamed over nine billion times to date, accruing on average 6.5 million streams daily. They’ve won seven Brit Awards, 20 NME Awards, 5 Q Awards, and nominated for three Grammys.
