The Strokes to record fourth album in February

In an interview with the BBC, Strokes bassist Nikolai Fraiture revealed the band is going to be heading into the studio next year to begin work on their fourth LP.

“We are looking at going into the studio in February now and getting back to being a band again,” he told the BBC.

Fraiture also discussed why its been nearly three years since The Strokes have put out any new material:

“It started with Nick (Valensi) having twins with his wife (two years ago) and he asked for a good amount of time off.

“After about six months he was ready to come back but other members of the band were doing their own thing. Albert (Hammond Jr) was doing his thing with his solo project and Julian (Casablancas) needed time off.

“One thing led to another so studio time kept getting pushed back.”
