The Strokes- Under Cover Of Darkness
Good news, there's a new Strokes album right around the corner!
The band's lengthy hiatus following 2006's First Impressions of Earth will end March 22nd with the release of Angles.
It marks the fourth major label release for The Strokes.
During their break in June 2010, the band played a secret show in Dingwalls London, England under the name 'Venison'. There was a crowd of fewer than 500 and it marked the band's first live show in nearly four years.
The hiatus also saw the release of frontman Julian Casablancas' solo album Phrazes For The Young which received generally favorable reviews.
Their first video for the new album is for the song "Under Cover of Darkness". On first listen, it sounds like pretty vintage Strokes material and I like the look of the video which was actually filmed in New Jersey. Go figure.
