About The Strokes
Fifth studio album is "Comedown Machine" (Updated April 11, 2013)
The Strokes are back! A project two years in the making is now the band's fifth studio album, officially titled "Comedown Machine." On March 18, 2013, it was available, in full, to stream on the website pitchfork.com. But how it came to be is a whole other story.
Going back to March 2011, The Strokes had already begun working on the album. But snags in the mixing sessions were just the beginning of the setbacks that would extend all the way into March 2012. At that point, bassist Nikolai Fraiture revealed the band was working on 'new ideas' rather than the original songs that had been crafted months before.
Fast forward another 12 months. On January 17, 2013, a Seattle radio station previewed a new song by The Strokes entitled "All the Time," which would ultimately be the lead single from the album. It was released for download on February 19, with critics hailing the return of the classic Strokes sound of its first two albums.
"Comedown Machine" was officially released in the U.S. on March 26, 2013. The band has not yet booked any tour dates in support of the album, but they're guaranteed to be back on the festival circuit and playing live again soon. In the meantime, Nick Valensi is currently collaborating with Brody Dalle on her forthcoming solo record.
About The Strokes
For a band that got its start playing gigs at New York City venues like Under the Acme, Arlene Grocery, Baby Jupiter and Luna, The Strokes seemed awfully astute when naming their debut album. "Is This It" dropped in 2001, and the American rock band from New York -- consisting of Julian Casablancas, Nick Valensi, Albert Hammond Jr., Nikolai Fraiture and Fabrizio Moretti -- already knew the answer to the question the album title proposed.
Officially christened the Strokes in 1999, the quintet had a sizeable following before ever signing its first record deal. Dates at the Mercury Lounge and the renowned Bowery Ballroom had gained them a manager and a three-song demo, sparking a bidding war from a number of record labels. Their fan base expanded to the U.K., and on tour as an opener and side-stage act, the band was bumped to the main stage due to the rabid fan response.
By the time "Is This It" was released in the US, the cover art (which featured a naked model on the UK-released version) had been completely redone. The single "New York City Cops" was also scrubbed following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The album was still met with universal acclaim, and was named best album of the year by Entertainment Weekly and TIME.
The Strokes profile has only continued to rise since that debut effort. Now with four albums and extensive touring behind them, the band is back in the studio working on a new record. They have also collected a host of awards, including Best International Band from the BRIT awards and Band of the Year from the NME Awards.
