British rockers Klaxons have dismissed rumours they were high on drugs during recording sessions for their new album Love Frequency.

The band's new record features a picture of what appears to be a small white pill stamped with the group's 'K' logo, prompting speculation the musicians indulged in illegal substances during the making of the album.

However, singer James Righton, who is married to Hollywood actress Keira Knightley, is adamant the record does not have a drug theme despite the psychedelic sound.

He tells NME, "There were no drugs involved in the making of this record... It's not a pill (in the cover art). It's plastic. It's a piece we commission (Dj/artist) Trevor Jackson to design. We asked him to design it using his impression of what the record is."
