The blogosphere hype machine has been working overtime on Arctic Monkeys as of late, and soon they’ll really have something to crow about: The band drops its debut full-length, What Ever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not, on Feb. 21 in the U.S. What Ever will be out in the U.K. on Jan. 30, so crazy Monkeys fans can get their fix a few weeks earlier by shelling out the extra dough for an import. Before 2006, American fans can purchase the Arctic Monkeys self-titled EP, which came out in October. The band kicks off a U.K. tour on January 23.
