UPDATE

We’ve been waiting with baited breath for The Strokes to announce a tour, in support of their fifth album, Comedown Machine, due out next month. And they finally did make an announcement: there will be NO tour. But, what?! Why!? While the band is being a bit secretive about their plans, frontman Julian Casablancas recently told BBC Radio that he “feels good about the atmosphere in the band.” OK, so what’s the problem then, boys?

PREVIOUS NEWS

We must be getting warmer to a tour-dates announcement, because after releasing the name of their upcoming album, the record’s cover art, an appropriately indie-looking lyric poster, and now Comedown Machine’s second single, what could possibly be left for The Strokes to reveal?

While you work out that logic, feel free to take a listen to The Strokes’ new track, “All the Time,” below:

The Strokes: “All the Time”

UPDATE: Album Release Date

After confirming the title of their new album (see below), The Strokes have now given fans a date to circle on their calendars – the release date of their new album, Comedown Machine. Set for release on March 26, the album will be their fifth studio album following Is This it?, Room On Fire, First Impressions of Earth and Angles.

The first official single from the album (other than the free download “One Way Trigger” below) will have the title “All The Time.” “All The Time” will be released on February 19 as a free download for those who pre-order Comedown Machine.

UPDATE

It isn’t a list of tour or on-sale dates, but The Strokes’ latest set of announcements is sure to please diehard fans. First came news of the band’s soon-to-be-released album’s name: Comedown Machine. Then, the release’s cover art. Next, a new single – “One Way Trigger” – and finally, a lyric poster for the song (not as slick as JT’s recently released lyric video, but we’re into the B-movie aesthetic).

We’ll be sure to provide updates once The Strokes make the inevitable tour announcement, but in the meantime, feel free to enjoy the group’s latest offerings below:

The Strokes Tour

Pioneering garage-rock band The Strokes are getting ready to release an album sometime this year, Billboard reports. The group’s followup to 2011′s Angles will mark their fifth studio effort, cause for celebration among fans who’ve waited two years to see the NYC rockers release new material and – most importantly – tour. According to Billboard, Seattle radio station 107.7 The End has the first single off the untitled record, called “All The Time.”

“We’ll have to ‘leak’ this soon,” The End recently posted to Facebook, prompting one affronted fan to comment: “excuse me, I find it offensive that you are NOT LEAKING IT RIGHT NOW.”

While we’re not as upset by Mike the Seattle DJ’s decision to tease the track before airing it (all the cool kids are building hype), now that a new album’s been confirmed, we’re also impatient for more news: Release date? Album title? Cover art? Tour Dates??

Making sure to keep it vague and strictly accurate, all Billboard would say on the subject of the album’s debut is that it’s slated for “later this year.” Julian Casablancas and his indie ensemble (including starlet escort of choice, Fabrizio Moretti) are keeping mum on the details. Later this year might mean next month, or 11 months from now – in other words, the promo tour might not, in fact, take place until 2014.

We’re really hoping it doesn’t take quite that long to hear the original YOLO track, “You Only Live Once,” live in person, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as more news is announced! While you wait, go ahead and scroll through our Strokes offerings below, and be sure to check back here for discount ticket links once the band’s concert run has been officially announced.
