The Strokes are back! Kind of! Or on their way to being back, anyway!
The early-decade New York rock kings are already set to headline two festivals this summer– England’s Isle of Wight and Scotland’s RockNess. And now Spin points out an update on the band’s website. According to the Strokes themselves, they’ve returned to the studio, where they’re working on the long-awaited follow-up to 2006’s First Impressions of Earth.
The band is working with producer Joe Chiccarelli (White Stripes, Shins, My Morning Jacket) and mixer Gus Oberg. They also promise to post “video vignettes” from the sessions on their website.
