Arctic Monkeys singles chronology

"The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala" is a song by the English indie rock band Arctic Monkeys, released as the second single from their fourth studio album Suck It and See and was intended to be released as a 7" vinyl on 15 August 2011.[1]

The 7" vinyl features only one B-side titled "Little Illusion Machine (Wirral Riddler)" and is credited to Miles Kane and the Death Ramps. The Death Ramps is a pseudonym previously adopted by the band when they released a limited edition vinyl with "Teddy Picker" b-sides "Nettles" and "The Death Ramps" back in 2007.

The music video for the single premiered on 7 July 2011 on YouTube. It was directed by Focus Creeps and featured footages of the band and model Scarlett Kapella as the "hellcat."[2]

The b-side "Little Illusion Machine (Wirral Riddler)" was made available for streaming the on 8 August.

On 8 August 2011, most of the stock of the single was destroyed in an arson fire at the PIAS Entertainment Group's warehouse during the 2011 London Riots,[3][4] severely hindering the single's retail release. The limited amount of remaining inventory was released exclusively on the band's website.[5]
