It looks like Arab Strap are about to return

Arab Strap, the duo made up of Malcolm Middleton and Aidan Moffat, seem to be hinting that they're about to return.

Arab Strap reunited in 2016 for some shows, but havent released a new album since 2005's The Last Romance.

Today (27 August) a new Arab Strap Twitter account launched, and their debut tweet is a film-style poster that claims "Arab Strap Lives!"

The poster features the tag line, "They're back from the grave and ready to rave", and features a vague release date, "Coming up soon".

With live music largely on hold until the coronavirus pandemic has blown over, it seems that their return to social media could be in preparation for a new album release, but they're yet to confirm details.

Last year, Malcolm Middleton released his "Scaffolding" and "Have Fun Mister" tracks.
