Bassist Nikolai Fraiture confirms news via Facebook
The Strokes‘ bassist Nikolai Fraiture has confirmed that the band will release their new album in the US on March 22.
Fraiture used Facebook to respond to speculation about the release, answering a fan’s question about when the record was coming out.
“Yes! You read right… March 22!” he wrote. “Looking forward to playing the new songs live.”
A UK release date for the album is yet to be confirmed, although if it does coincide with the US release it would come out the day before (21).
The as-yet-untitled 10-song follow-up to 2006’s ‘First Impressions Of Earth’ was produced by the band in guitarist Albert Hammond Jr‘s upstate New York studio after initial sessions with producer Joe Chiccarelli were scrapped.
