    Thanks darling, so excited. :heart:

    From nme.

    The Strokes have released a 'behind the scenes' video showing the band working on their new album, and you can see it by scrolling down.

    Featuring the New York group in Manhattan's Avatar Studios, the 9-minute film includes the band working on a new song called 'Taken For A Fool' with producer Joe Chiccarelli.

    Meanwhile earlier today, Julian Casablancas revealed The Strokes will play just two shows this summer.

    Casablancas told NME.COM that those will be the band's only shows before they complete the record, with a September release planned.

    "We're doing two with The Strokes and that's it for the summer," he said, adding he would take his solo show on the road again instead. "I'll do other festivals alone, If they'll have me!"

    See this week's issue of NME, on UK newsstands now, for a full interview with Casablancas, during which he discusses the possibility of playing free shows this year too.

    Hmm.. not sure what to make of this. Could end up being bad, could be nothing to worry about. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    Fabricio Moretti: Strokes Album, Ouu 'Soon', a Throwback to Their Debut
    How’s the long-gestating, non-hierarchically structured new Strokes album coming along? We asked Fabrizio Moretti, Strokes drummer (and one-third of the band Little Joy), after he D.J.-ed a set for the new Sunglass Hut flagship store last night. “It's going well,” he said outside, smoking a Marlboro. “We recorded at Albert [Hammond Jr.]'s studio upstate. We're, like, inching ever so closer to the ****ing finish line, like turtles, but it's happening.” Moretti said the album will be out “soon,” but he couldn't promise it'll be within the year.
    There’s even better news: Moretti says that album is turning out “a lot more like the first record.” The first album, he explained, “was made through the course of our youth. And then the second and the third were kind of made within the schedule of just whatever the **** we were doing at the time. But now, because we've had the time to kind of just chill out, we got the chance to just kind of jam it out with each other.” Jamming out, of course, isn’t exactly Julian Casablancas’s style. So how’s everybody been getting along? “There are moments when it's sandpaper against sandpaper,” he admitted, without getting specific. “There are five different people and five different convictions, but we speak the same language. We always had the kind of gang mentality, but the older we get the more we realize the gang is actually a family. We're each other's chosen family, I guess.”
    Moretti, whose exes include Drew Barrymore, confirmed that he's dating Little Joy bandmate Binki Shapiro. "It's tough sometimes," he said. "In music you don't punch out at the end of the day. You come home when you're done with your ****ing show or recording and you have to work on more music, so bringing work to home or home to work is sometimes stressful, but it has its benefits." He added: "I tell her that I love her all the time." Moretti, back with a scruffy beard and disheveled locks after a brief flirtation with a cleaner cut, looked great. In fact, last night his hair was professionally mussed. “I just came from a photo shoot with Elle magazine,” he explained, “so I just let them do it for me.” He said it's still “a little bit weird” to be in fashion magazines, but the shoot “was really about Binki, and I was just the stooge that stood next to her every once in a while.”

    First April, then September, now January... I just want the album to be released!

    Thanks for the info, you :wub:

    The Strokes' Julian Casablancas says new album will be out 'in January'
    Frontman also thinks they'll 'play at least one new song' at Isle Of Wight and RockNess

    The Strokes' Julian Casablancas has announced that the band's new album will be released "in January".

    Speaking to Clashmusic.com, the singer revealed that he was "pretty sure" the group's fourth studio album would be out at the start of 2011.

    "I think January," he admitted. "I was told not to predict anymore. But I'm pretty sure it should be out in January".

    The follow-up to 2006's 'First Impressions Of Earth', Casablancas also claimed that the band are seemingly over the creative differences that have delayed work on the album so far.

    "I think time helped and more communication helped," he explained. "We'll see; it's like 'to be continued'. We'll see if things are okay with the band when we're on tour. When we're not on tour, everyone's super nice and chilled and it's all great. It's just when you go on tour that things get weird."

    Set to appear at this year's Isle Of Wight festival on June 12, then RockNess in Scotland on June 13, the frontman told fans that while he wasn't sure if they would showcase any new material at those events, he thought they would "play at least one new song". - nme

    The Strokes to Play Secret London Warm-Up Gig Tomorrow

    The Strokes look set to play a secret festivals warm-up show tomorrow night (June 9) in London.

    The band posted up a logo based on their own with the name Venison on their Twitter (twitter.com/thestrokes), before then following it with a picture of the same account clearly taken from London's Dingwalls venue.

    The website for the Camden venue Dingwalls.com lists Venison playing the venue tomorrow night, explaining that tickets will go on sale from 9pm (BST) tonight only from the venue's website.

    The site also notes that the band were previously called "The ****ty Beatles."

    Stay tuned to NME.COM for the latest on The Strokes' live return, including their headlining performance at the Isle Of Wight Festival this Saturday (June 12).
