WORK BEGINS ON 4th ALBUM PLANS
just dropping a line to stay in touch and update you on some news...
i'll start with the BIG NEWS....
after a long and much needed hibernation period that saw many of the band's various other musical projects emerge, we're pleased to announce that The Strokes are now all back hard at work in their NYC space on writing and rehearsing new material for a 4th full-length album, the first since 2006's "First Impressions of Earth".
no recording studio time has been booked yet, as they sketch out the blue-prints of new songs and fine tune plans in their rehearsal space, but it will undoubtedly be all mapped out and etched in stone at some point in the not-too-distant future. i wish i could tell you that this DEFINITELY meant we can expect an album release date before the end of 2009, but it's just too soon to speculate on that for sure yet. one way or another.... suffice to say, the work has begun!
*************BAND MEMBER NEWS*************
in the meantime, until work on the album is completed and i can touch back with you all about further plans, there is still plenty of other "activity" that the a some of the band members are involved with....
***JULIAN contributed vocals to the song "Boombox" for The Lonely Island's debut album Incredibad, which is available now everywhere.

***NIKOLAI's band Nickel Eye has just released a Mark Ronson remix of his song "Brandy of the Damned" (feat. Wale), available NOW on iTunes and soon to be released on 7" vinyl in the U.S. and U.K., as b-side to the song "Dying Star", feat. Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeah's on lead guitar.

***FABRIZIO's band Little Joy (also consisting of Rodrigo Amarante and Binki Shapiro) is mapping out plans to do another tour of the U.S., after just returning from Europe and Brazil earlier this year. the band will be touring without Fabrizio this time around, however, as he'll be busy with The Strokes and their aforementioned rehearsal sessions back in NYC. But Rodrigo and Binki will be soldiering forward with Little Joy while Fab takes care of his business back in NYC.... though you never can be sure when Fabrizio might make a "cameo appearance" on the road with the band.
Little Joy's full-length self-tltled debut album was released on Rough Trade Records and is available everywhere now. additionally, you can check out the video for "No One's Better Sake", directed by Warren Fu,
