Arctic Monkeys set out to play a few gigs this May, and have recently begun working on their fifth studio album. With the band taking a break from the studio and playing their first concert in months, fans watching the show in Ventura got to witness a brand new song: Do I Wanna Know?

NME  quoted frontman Alex Turner  saying that their new music sounds ‘heavier’ and ‘louder’ than their prior material.

Arctic Monkeys performed the brand new song,  Do I Wanna Know, for the first time, at The Ventura Theater, in Ventura CA, on May 22, 2013. Watch the two track’s live debut below:
