The Strokes Wrapping Up Third Album
June 1, 2005


The Strokes

The Strokes have been hard at work in the studio for a while now, recording the follow-up to 2003's Room On Fire. Band manager Ryan Gentles has sent out an update on their progress to the band's mailing list, saying that production on the record is "wrapping up." The Strokes are aiming to release the album in January of 2006, with a single being shipped to radio sometime in the fall.

The new album is still untitled, and Gentles could not reveal any song titles either. Thirteen new tracks have been recorded and almost finished, and the band plans on spending the next two months mixing the record, along with Andy Wallace (Nirvana, Prince, Bruce Springsteen).

The Strokes hope to put together a small tour of Europe and possibly Japan and Australia before the album's release. They also would like to play South America by year's end, possibly in November, though nothing is officially confirmed. Gentiles adds that, "for the U.S., we're hoping to do something similar possibly in the few weeks leading up to the album release in January... just a few small venue shows in select cites around the country, as sort of a preview tour." He also says The Strokes plan on "much more extensive touring" than the band did after the release of Room On Fire.
