New Strokes album 'to arrive in March'
Indie band The Strokes are set to release their hotly-anticipated next record in March, bass guitar player Nikolai Fraiture has revealed.
Speaking to BBC Radio 1, the star explained that the album is currently being mixed and represents a return to the group's "classic sound".
"Sonically, I feel it's the album which should have been made between Room On Fire and First Impressions Of Earth," Fraiture said.
He stated that the initial writing sessions for the album had been "weird" for the band members, after the majority of the group had embarked on solo projects following the release of their last LP five years ago.
The bass guitar player added that a world tour is on the cards after the album comes out, although no dates have been officially confirmed as yet.
Last summer, The Strokes headlined both Rockness and the Isle of Wight festivals but decided not to play any of their new songs as they wanted to let their fans hear their classics instead, Fraiture said.
In 2010, the band also managed to tour the US and Australia as they made their comeback to the live music scene.
