Arctic Monkeys to turn down a move to the majors

Following the final release from their initial deal, it seems that Arctic Monkeys will snub advance from major labels in order to sign with Domino once again. "Suck it and See" was the fourth and final album due contractually with the Monkeys now musical free agents.

The Sheffield band have courted the interest of Sony and Columbia but, according to the band's manager - Ian McAndrew, Domino's offer will be straight to the top of the pile.

McAndrew stated:

"We have not entered into discussions with any other prospective label although we have received plenty of enquiries. Domino has been a great label for the band and afforded us fantastic support and therefore will be at the front of any future discussions we may have about further albums."

Reminds me of that old maxim... "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"
