The New York band haven’t gone their solo ways just yet. With lead singer Julian Casablancas releasing his solo album in the past and Albert Hammond Jr’s own musical path.

Fans were unsure if the band would ever play again until last month. On 31st May the band had played their first gig in three years in New York. The gig was held at Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, with a small capacity of 1,800. The show itself was a warm up for their slot at Governors Ball on Randall’s Island.

Albert Hammond Jr hinted that the band may play one more gig, as he stated: “The Strokes should tour to make the world a better place”. Yes, it will make the world a better place especially with their last album only being released in 2013, Comedown Machine.

The band is known famously for hits such as “Last Nite” and their hit albums: Is This It and Room on Fire. The guitarist replied with: “Hopefully we figure something out. I think we might do one more show but I can’t tell you where”. We can tell that Hammond is keen to tour with The Strokes.

Other headliners such as: Jack White, Outkast and Vampire Weekend played the festival along with The Strokes. This was the first festival the band had played since 2011 at popular Reading and Leeds fest in the UK. L

ead Singer Julian Casablanca’s admitted that his solo album will be released in September. The band opened their set at the Governors Ball with Barely Illegal, from their 2001 debut album, Is This It.

The only other show that The Strokes are booked for this summer is FYF fest in August in Los Angeles. The festival has assigned acts such as: Phoenix, Interpol and Haim that will play along with The Strokes.
