In 12 days, we'll have the new album from The Strokes. 'Angles' drops on March 21st, and to say there's some hyped up excitement for it is a bit of an understatement. After Julian Casablancas revealed a joke album cover on his Twitter (and thankfully it was a joke), the band started revealing new songs, free downloads, the real album artwork and a full tracklisting.

They also made a television appearance, performing a few songs on Saturday Night Live:

But if you still want more and can't wait the 12 days, the band have also unveiled a few behind-the-scenes "making of the album" videos, which you can watch below.

A handheld clip made by the band, giving us a peek inside The Strokes' studio as they record 'Angles'. Well, as they blow smoke rings and spin round in chairs...

The band play fight, start a table tennis tournament, and have a homoerotic sing song to Divinyls' 'I Touch Myself'.

The band try and lay down a rhythm section but get distracted by Jimi Hendrix and throwing flour in each other's faces.
