About The Strokes
The Strokes are one of the coolest bands on the planet and they are set to play a one off show at Belfast's Waterfront Hall Auditorium on 24 February 2020.
The native NYC new wave/post-punk rockers have hinted at making a “global comeback” in 2019. In addition to a homecoming show at New York’s Governors Ball, which marked their first US show since July 2016, they played a trio of festivals in France and Spain and the UK last summer.
Frontman Julian Casablancas and the members of The Strokes have been busy with an array of projects. Last year Casablancas and his band Voidz released their second album, Virtue, while guitarist Albert Hammond Jr put out his fourth solo collection, Francis Trouble.
It’s been seven years since The Strokes last studio album, Comedown Machine, came out. Their most recent new material is the 2016 EP Future Present Past. It contains hits like Drag Queen, OBLIVIUS and Threat of Joy, whose zany video has federal agents turning up to confiscate the footage for OBLIVIUS, leaving the band to play Threat of Joy.
The Strokes are revered for their 2001 album Is This It, which has appeared on numerous lists compiled by Rolling Stone and other publications naming the best debut albums and best albums of all time. It also helped earned the band a BRIT Award in 2002 for Best International Newcomer.
Few bands since the turn of the 21st century has been so influential as The Strokes. Among their biggest hits are Hard to Explain, Juicebox, Heart in a Cage, Taken for a Fool, Under Cover of Darkness and Someday.
