The Strokes will reveal their new music this summer

Plans for the band’s headline slot at The Governors Music Ball Festival have been unveiled

The Strokes will debut their new material this summer during The Governors Music Ball Festival.

The news was revealed by the festival’s organisers, who chose to book the New Yorkers on the basis that they’d be playing new material.

Speaking in a Reddit AMA the festival’s organisers said: “This would be their first batch of new tunes in, well, just about a half decade. Kind of a big deal. Also, they’ve played a total of 8 shows in North America in the last decade, so I’d say it’s a pretty big deal any time they hit the stage.”
