Albert Hammond, Jr. has said that The Strokes must make a new album by 2009.
Hammond Jr. – The Strokes guitarist and solo artist in his own right – said that the band were in danger of fading from the public’s memory.
“If we don’t make a Strokes record before that, people will think that’s the end of us,” said Hammond Jr., speaking to Teletext’s Planet Sound.
“Nothing’s set, but we’re definitely figuring out something to do for 2009.”
The New York band have not released an album since ‘First Impressions Of Earth’ in January 2006 leaving the guitarist to pursue his solo projects.
Albert Hammond Jr.’s second album ‘Como Te Llama’ was released on July 7.
