Julian Casablancas reveals the band will play the Chicago event, according to reports
The Chicago Tribune reports that frontman Julian Casablancas confirmed that the band, currently working on the follow-up to 2006’s ‘First Impressions Of Earth’, would be playing the event, which takes place at Grant Park, Chicago between August 6-8.
Meanwhile, Casablancas also gave an update on how work on the new album was going.
“I’ve written a lot of melodies for it,” he explained. “But the other guys have also contributed a lot more: melodies, choruses, parts. It’s way more collaborative. So it’ll have a different feel than our other albums.”
As previously reported, The Strokes are also set to play the Isle Of Wight and Rock Ness festivals this summer.
