Exactly! haha

The strokes can do whatever the hell the want because they are amazing

I really don't think the strokes are gonna make up all this hype and allow a 4th album discussion in their forum for nothing. we'll have a new album sometime this year, i'm sure, our boys won't let us down =D

Well, that just means that the next album will be even better!!! Cause if they rush it, it wont be nearly as good as if they took their time making it just right, so i guess we just have to be patient and w8 for another Strokes masterpiece... :P

Sure thing hard2explain! and all other Strokes' board users. I am online constantly searching for up to date news about the Strokes, and I'm certain you guys are too; especially with the recently released articles that 1. give an exact time and date of The Strokes first official 4th album meeting (02:00:00 pm EST, on Feb. 11, 2009 in NYC) and 2. tell that Nick and Jules are and have begun writing for the new record. Until then I'll try to keep on the look out and stay more up to date than thestrokes.com has been in 2 years. :lol:

hehe thanks bonjoursalut! yea their upcoming album is going to definitely blow us away

i agree with everyword thats been said here except for one thing
ROF is not a classic maybe FIOE and ISI is the stroke's best work classic
I started listening to the strokes two years ago with ISI and i still listen to it a lot the whole album through
much more than FIOE and ISI
I hope if anything this habitus brings back The Strokes' old sound and if not something else like a more refined FIOE. If the strokes are heading in that direction I'm fine but i still hope they revisit there old stuff

Can't I just state an opinion? This is not a debate of who is right or wrong. I wasn't putting down your opinion I just don't want my words to be misinterpreted. Jesus Christ man.[/quote]

darlin! im really glad you wrote that first message...and dont worry if people take your opinion some place else...thats their problem...and im also sick n tired of everyone wishing for jules to be a drunk and an alcoholic...maybe its a bad joke...i rather him healthy and live a looooooooonnngggg life....and i LOVED FIOE! its a classic for me...and i cant wait til they come out with their next album to prove everyone wrong!

ah, ok. :(

yeah the 911 sessions are definately the songs that are more than likely not them never heard of them till now, but they came out on a cd with there oldest stuff. sounds sketchy as hell.

I don't know, the 911 sessions sound kind of suspicious. People in that thread say those songs sound different, even the singer. It might be mislabeled. I've heard all the others, though.

yeah i saw that as well on youtube definately is not from 2008 at all but i do have some of those rare songs, but have never seen that cd they came on.

Ricomt,
I knew a little on each members' status as far as side projects and personal notes, but the info you collected is pretty outstanding.
Any info on things in the future would greatly be appreciated.

You know what'd suck, if the next Strokes album just went down hill like King of Leon's did....agh..naa they aren't sell outs...but neither were KOL...trippy.

The Strokes have been keeping me waiting for far too long!

I've tried to listen to alfreds music, fabs new thing, and it is quite nice, but nothing like the Strokes.
Jules got married, and then it just died, i need Jules to, pleeeease, make some music again! Anyone who knows where he lives? I wanna make a call to him. It's not fair that they've just made 3 albums, its like petting without sex.

they are gonna come out with a new album!
dont freak out!
and im sure thier next will be amazing like the others!

im going to see nickel eye so im sure i will get to talk to him about it

Hi All,
Doesn't really surprise me that they haven't put forward an album for this year. This is because, if you think about it...
They get together in Feb to start writing the album. My guess is that it'll take a good few months to write it properly, maybe July? Then they need to record, and master it. Release dates are usually set for a few months after recording. So...

I'm expecting an early 2010 release. Best way to ease the pain of waiting is to try and forget about it. It'll be here sooner than you know ;) :D

Let's take a look at the different perspectives on this subject. What are each of our favourite five people doing to pass the time?

Fab - Fab is hard at work at the moment. Playing in Brussels on the 10th, will kick off Little Joy's European tour that will round off on the 21st of January. Little Joy has to be the happiest sounding band in the world, and it is easy to see that Fab is having so much fun doing this side project. I recently saw Little Joy while they were in Dallas, and talked with Fab basically from the beginning of the show, thru the show (front stage) and then after the show was over for a long while. I had on my Strokes t-shirt and as soon as he saw it he said "Oh man dig the shirt!" So for one we know that he is in good standing with the band. Then I said to Fab, "I know man I can't wait for the new album!" He said I know man it's comin', It's comin man! So Fab is definitely aboard the 4th album train, but is just enjoying the time that he has with his Little Joy fans and soaking in all the love from the crowds. He also said that he doesn't feel the Strokes were able to connect with their true fans as much because their fame came at such a fast rate. So we'll let him enjoy this time and head back into the studio refreshed.

Julian - Said in an interview maybe two years ago that he had stopped drinking. If that is true or not I don't know. What has he been up to though? Well in the summer he released his first piece of work in ages with My Drive Thru for Converse's 100th Anniversary commercial. Julian worked along side Santogold, and Pharrell of N.E.R.D. It was a different sound than any of us Stroke lovers has ever heard, but at least it was something. Now at the beginning of February Julian will be featured on the debut album from SNL joke song writers Andy Samberg and co. The name of their group is The Lonely Island, and they have produced such hits as, "Jizz In My Pants", "Dick In a Box" and "Iran So Far". This should be a hilarious compilation, and will be good to hear from our friend Jules for the first time in 2009. I would think that Julian is ready to get back into the studio, but may not be too keen to the idea of sharing creativity allowance. Who knows what kind of crazy collaboration of music genius that Julian will be aiming for on the next album.

Albert - After releasing his sophomore album in early 2008, Albert has seemed more like a movie star these past few months. Partly because he is dating a super model, and I think that is taking up a lot of his time. I always felt that Albert was distant from the others in the band, and I think that this time apart cannot of helped with his bonds between the other Strokes. I think Albert is happy with his solo work now, but will enjoy working with the guys again. Albert could possibly request a more clean sound from The Strokes, as his own songs tend to all be recorded in a fresh easy to understand and make out sound.

Nikolai - Nikolai will be releasing his debut album Nickel Eye at the end of January. After a few short tour dates, he will be back at home most likely with the wife. Nikolai has remained the most optimistic about the next album and having it completed soon. He doesn't seem to shy around talking about the next album, and I think that he too is tired of the break and ready to return to the studio, bringing a folk out look to the bands ideas about the songs on the next album.

Nick - Nick is the last one not to have his own solo song released. Nick plays drums in Little Joy's new video. He also has a cameo in the Megapuss video with Fab, Binki, Devendra and Matt. I think Nick and Fab have grown closer throughout this break and have come to terms with what they want out of their music. More of an Indie, or perhaps cultural sound is what I think Nick will bring to the studio next time around.

Lastly I hate to hear people saying that this is it for the Strokes, and when are they going to do their final album? Well hopefully they aren't going to die anytime soon, and as far as I know, the Who are still playing together, so let's have an optimistic outlook for 2009 shall we?

That's quite a way to explain their projects haha

Yes you must. Hammond Jr.'s 2nd album, Como Te Llama is great. Moretti's genre is very calm and serene, and Fraiture's gives off a nostalgic feel for me. They're cool for side projects. :)

Unfortunately, I've only heard Al Hammond's first album.
I haven't really checked out anyone else's stuff yet :cry:
But i plan to get to it very soon

[quote="gryffindor626"]Look, The Strokes are awesome no matter what. Whether they make their last album this year or not. People need to stop listening and believing everything they hear through the media. People bash Julian Casablancas for being an alcoholic, saying that he is bringing down the band! In my opinion, I don't think Casablancas is an alcoholic. He said that if his drinking was ever going to affect his music, he would take a break; and thus, they did. If he truly was an alcoholic then he wouldn't give a damn about the band.
The media is here to basically misrepresent everything about anyone who is famous. That is why The Strokes don't want their names and pictures posted up for everyone to see because it's just bullshit. People like drama therefore, that's what media gives them. It is proven through their music video of "Juicebox." It's sleezy and I'm sure that's not what they wanted their song represented as.
I wouldn't give an ounce doubt that this upcoming album will rock the charts because they don't write crap for songs. It's said that their hiatus will only last 3 years, which is about the same amount of time between Room on Fire and First Impressions of Earth. So why are you guys trippin' over whether this is going to rock or not?
It just simply will so just wait for the fuckin' album to come out.[/quote]

i agree also agree with hardtoexplain maybe they dont want to be like the rest...first become a great hit then ripping their lives apart in many public ways, and also the media does not care about celebrities or rock bands's health, for example casablancas' alcoholism, only on the fucking money and schemes...

"It's all about the money."-Julian Casablancas (from the "In Transit"film)

Yea, I totally forgot to include that minor detail about their side projects. :) oh speaking of which, have you listened to any of their works? Brilliant right!?

All of the band members are doing side projects too that's not helping the hiatus.
But I'm hoping that gives them more material to work with.
I'm sure we won't be disappointed

Understandable. Well, I suppose all we could do now is wait...As agonizing as it is, patience is good. They're going to wow us. I can feel it. This long awaited hiatus will end and inspire something new and fresh to The Strokes fans. ^_^
They got this. ::thumbs up::

[quote="gryffindor626"]Hello Damnright,
I don't know if I was relaying any miscommunication within my previous posts but what you were saying with your post was exactly what I was trying to explain. I completely agree with you 100% that's why I kept saying that people needed to stop calling him an alcoholic because like I said before, if he was an alcoholic then he wouldn't give a damn about the band. And don't get me wrong the music was awesome with the crazy drunk days, but like you said it's time to move on.
Cheers mate,
gryffindor626

P.S. oh yeah, and I got an account too because I was shocked with the messages posted as well.[/quote]

Agreed :) I'm just a little shocked at people saying that we need to stop viewing Julian's old drinking days as negative, because those were the "good days." I'm sorry, I don't get that. Once I found out that cuckoo party time Julian was actually kind of miserable, it made me listen to the music differently. It wasn't cuckoo party time anymore.

I was thinking today, they've never waited this long between albums, have they? And I remember thinking that it took forever and a day for First Impressions of Earth to come out. Pfft, that was nothing compared to this kind of waiting we're doing now...

I think there is a reason they are pushing it back though.
Maybe they just got to work out all of the kinks?
I'd rather the band take their time and come out with something amazing than rush it and sound like crap.

Well, according to Nickel Eye's Myspace page, it is stated that the band should be getting together in February of this year to produce their new album, as well as try to milk out perhaps a fifth one before their record label ends.
I think that would be awesome, and I'm sure they are men of their words. However, if they were to push it back a little while longer, then we'll just have to suck it up right? hehe ^_^
peace.

Hey guys, I think the hostility of whether or not Julian is an alcoholic and misinterpretations kinda of caused us to get off track (haha).
Gryffindor is just stating what he thinks, he's not trying to start anything.
On a lighter note, has anyone found any information reguarding whether or not The Strokes has any info on putting in an album for this year?
Everything still seems a little vague.

I had to create an account for this....Are these Strokes fan comments I am reading? People saying his drinking days were great because that's when he was "fun" or had "attitude."

To put Julian's drinking up on a pedestal just because it made for something that YOU liked is very selfish, and makes me question your appreciation for the band. He's said that the drinking was affecting his work, and his relationships. I don't know if he was a full-blown alcohol addict, but he and his band mates have said that the drinking was issue. Why would you want him to keep doing that? And think about his family...Would you want a drunk husband? Just because you really loved "Is This It" and for the past eight years you've been waiting for him to do something like it again?

The Strokes will never do an "Is This It" again. They aren't supposed to, either. The music is different now, because they are different. Like Julian said, that's just the way it is. And like everyone else, I miss the old days too, but I certainly don't want them to go back to the old days either. That's regression, and who the hell wants that?

I started listening to this band when I was 18. I'm turning 25 in two months. I don't want to go back to being 18 (sort of!), and I don't want The Strokes to re-do "Is This It." In my eyes, they're the best, and it is agony waiting for them to get back together and give me something new, but I'm patient. If the break is keeping them mentally healthy, then let them take their time.

I can't wait until they come back and just un-pollute the musical air a little bit. There's a different kind of feeling when they put out new material. Thanks for the music, Strokes.

And holler to everyone from the old message board. I had some good laughs over there back when I was still in school!

I'm not trying to pick a fight. And no I didn't read the NME article of, "Is This It."
Can't I just state an opinion? This is not a debate of who is right or wrong. I wasn't putting down your opinion I just don't want my words to be misinterpreted. Jesus Christ man.

don't you read the NME article about Is this it?
"Is This It was born of confuse an alcohol"
you enjoy the lyrics of drunk jules...

My point was, who cares if Casablancas was an alcoholic, no one should be talking shit about him and his fine drinking. People just need to stop bringing it up as a negative because I enjoyed the passion in his lyrics and vocals when he sang the album, Room on Fire as well.
"Alcoholics go to meetings. We're drunks." - Nikolai Fraiture.

Julian WAS an alcoholic!
and i think that was fun:)
the strokes would be nothing without drunk julian, he had that attitude , the i don't give a fuck attitude...
don't give me wrong i think is nice that he's not drunk all the time, but i miss the old times...

Thank you, hard2explain!
I completely agree with you on First Impressions of Earth being way ahead of our time. It's true! From, "You Only Live Once" to "Red Light," there is nothing better to listen to than words that hit close to home. These lyrics aren't just generalized but truly based on the experiences we go through. The mistakes we make and the mistakes we should be making in order to grow and become a better, stronger person. A great man once told me that experience is the best teacher; and who better to express it musically than The Strokes? Have you ever heard Casablanca's song, "I'll Try Anything Once?" I'm not sure where I heard it, or whether it is true or not; but it I think he wrote it in dedication to how his drinking was affecting his ability to produce quality music. I just remember hearing him say that he would rather take a long break and create the best he can than saying, "fuck it all" and performing sub par. Or something like that. I was amazed at how strong of a person he is; to step out of his comfort zone and write a song that has so much meaning. Every line, I can relate to. It's amazing.
I admit, I was somewhat of an alcoholic myself and listening to the lyrics really slapped the shit out of me. Especially with the first line, "Ten decisions shape your life." "Some take it all out on themselves, some, they just take it out on friends."
I know that they have experienced an ample amount of events in their lives; and for them to know that there is always something more to learn every fuckin' day of our lives, just makes listening to their music that more powerful.
Compare those lyrics to what we hear on the radio now. Talking about being 17years old and they know the world and they know love. Bullshit!
The Strokes will be legends that I will never forget.
^_^

gryffindor626, I completely agree...
First off, the whole reason ROF was so amazing was the fact jules was an alcoholic and was drinking in and out of the studio...
That's why if you actually listen to the lyrics you can tell there was a lot of anger hidden in them (ex. "I'm not your friend, I never was" "Good try we don't like it, good try we won't take that shit"
Second, I think FIOE was so awesome that it hasn't even hit us yet. I think they were way ahead of our time when they made that album and if you actually sat down and listened to it a few time you would probably agree.
People need to stop worrying about this new album, I'm sure the band wouldn't let us down by making up stuff about a potential album in 2009 and never releasing it.

Look, The Strokes are awesome no matter what. Whether they make their last album this year or not. People need to stop listening and believing everything they hear through the media. People bash Julian Casablancas for being an alcoholic, saying that he is bringing down the band! In my opinion, I don't think Casablancas is an alcoholic.

It just simply will so just wait for the fuckin' album to come out.

I have to disagree: FIOE was not a classic. Now ITI? & ROF were classics.

I have a feeling The Strokes are never going to release a new album. They made three classics, though.
