The Strokes Return
05 Jan 2011
The Strokes are about to make their long awaited comeback with a new album and world tour.
The as yet untitled album, the follow-up to 2006’s “First Impressions of Earth,” has been produced by Joe Chiccarelli and is currently being mixed by the band in Albert Hammond Jr.’s studio.
Talking to the BBC, bassist Nicolai Fraiture hints at a return to the classic Strokes sound. "Sonically, I feel it's the album which should have been made between “Room On Fire” and “First Impressions Of Earth” says Fraiture.
The band has already announced live appearances at European summer festivals including Spain’s Benicassim Festival in July and intends to take the new album on tour around the world.
