The Strokes announce new record Comedown Machine

The Strokes Comedown MachineIt seems every time I update this site a few hours later new information comes out. ┬áThis is the best yet though, The Strokes will release their fifth record entitled Comedown Machine‘on 25 March 2013 (UK) and 26 March (US), rest of the world dates to be announced.

As speculated yesterday, Comedown Machine is indeed the title and as many people have pointed out the cover is a lovely vintage tribute to the red tape used by RCA back in the 1950s.

Fans in the US and the rest of the world can pre-order the album here, UK fans will have to wait for Rough Trade to put it up in their store, expect that will happen soon. If you pre-order the album a download of new single All The Time will be sent out on 19 February.
