The band admitted that they need time off from recording so they can find themselves some new inspiration as their lives have changed so dramatically since their rise to fame and success, reports The Sun.
Frontman Alex Turner explained: "It's hard to do the old chip shop rock 'n' roll. After you've done it once, you don't sort of hang around that many chippies anymore. I think it's natural, I couldn't ever write about my surroundings in the same way as I did back then."
He added: "I don't really write on the road anymore. We come up with a few ideas on soundchecks and that but I have written too many terrible lyrics touring around. As yet there is no plan to return to the studio next year, we're keeping our heads down.
"We've always been thinking about the next move. For now we're just focused on the touring."
Arctic Monkeys recently revealed that they are fans of good pop music, including songs by Kylie Minogue.
