Klaxons to debut second album at summer festivals

Klaxons will finally unveil songs from their long overdue second album at the festivals this summer.

It's three years since the group released their Mercury Prize-winning debut 'Myths of the Near Future', but they now plan to release the sequel after their forthcoming appearances.

Guitarist Simon Taylor-Davies said, "I think in England it's just going to be Reading and Leeds, in terms of festivals, this summer. Then we'll tour all the way through to the festivals next year. I think we'll do a few spot shows around the summer, but this will be our big comeback." He told NME. Speaking about the new album, Simon added to the music mag, "One of the fundamental things about this new record is how much of a live record it is. It was written and recorded with the four of us in a room facing each, in a room that was about three metres squared."

Earlier this year Klaxons said that their new LP is inspired by Shamanism.
