Arctic Monkeys avoid the Brits again
The Arctic Monkeys have opted out from appearing at the Brit Awards again - this time in order to film the video for their new single.

The band have been nominated in the Best Album and Best Group categories, but have said that instead of attending the ceremony they will concentrate on completing the promotional video for 'Brainstorm'.

Matt Helders, the band's drummer, told the BBC that they were not trying to make a point in not attending the awards.

He explained: "We're filming the video that day, so we're not going to be anywhere near it. We haven't snubbed it, we're just busy boys getting ready to go on tour again."

Their new album Favourite Worst Nightmare is released on April 23, and preceded by 'Brainstorm' a week earlier.
