Helders told NME that the record would be in the vein of their single 'Brianstorm' and take influence from Queens Of The Stone Age.
He said: "[It's] not 'heavy metal' heavy - just more aggressive. We're all into Queens Of The Stone Age. When we got to play with them and see them live it gave us a kick up the a***.
"They are an inspiration, they show you can still have top tunes and loud, heavy songs, too. It's a lot more fun playing loud music - simple as that."
Arctic Monkeys are to begin work on their third album when frontman Alex Turner completes his tour with The Last Shadow Puppets.
