After recently scrapping most of their fall U.S. tour, the Kaiser Chiefs are anxious to begin recording their third full length this fall.

After recently scrapping most of their fall U.S. tour, the Kaiser Chiefs are anxious to begin recording their third full length next month.

"We are just really desperate to write some new stuff," drummer Nick Hodgson tells Billboard.com. "We don't know exactly what we're going to put out, but it will be next year."

"We're very keen on breaking the cycle of what normal bands do, which is album every two years and tour for a year-and-a-half and take six months to write," he continues. "Not only does it get predictable, it gets boring. A lot of our contemporaries do the same thing."

The Kaisers plan to head to a studio in Leeds, England, next month and do some initial groundwork. "We're definitely interested in a new producer and we're definitely interested in a new sound," Hodgson promises.

The band's lone remaining U.S. date is Sept. 29 at New York's Beacon Theatre. A European tour gets underway Oct. 23 in London.
