It was recorded throughout 2008 and 2009 in a number of locations including the Mojave Desert, Los Angeles and New York.

Tracks slated to appear on the record include My Propeller, Crying Lightning, Dangerous Animals, Secret Door and Fire And Thud.

The band are due to headline this year's Reading and Leeds Festivals alongside Radiohead and Kings of Leon over the weekend of 28-30 August.
