About The Strokes

The Strokes are one of the coolest bands on the planet and they are set to headline a night at this year's All Points East. Appearing on the second day of the festival, Saturday 25 May 2019.

The native NYC new wave/post-punk rockers have been hinting at making a “global comeback” this year. In addition to a homecoming show at New York’s Governors Ball, which will mark their first US show since July 2016, they’ve been announced for a trio of festivals in France and Spain this summer. Their appearance at APE will be the band’s first UK show in four years.

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 five 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.
