Arctic Monkeys face censorship issues in the U.S

Arctic Monkeys are being hit with a censorship issue as their new album prepares for its U.S release. 

'Suck It And See' is due to be officially unveiled on Monday, June 6 but American retailers have taken offense to the record's title and are planning to cover the "rude" words with stickers. Alex Turner explained the situation to XFM:

"They think it is rude, disrespectful and they're putting a sticker over it in America in certain stores, big ones."

The band almost predicted this move in a recent interview about the album's title and have been streaming it in full from their website this week.
