STROKES ARE HIT BY PIRATES

Those cursed internet pirates strike again...

THE STROKES’ second album ‘ROOM ON FIRE’ has leaked onto the internet.

According to fan websites, ten of the songs from the record were leaked onto the internet over the weekend.

NME.COM understands users of various unofficial message boards are now sharing MP3 files of the album.

The record joins the list of hundreds that have appeared on the internet before its official release, despite a massive clampdown on file sharing by the music industry.

Earlier this year, unmastered songs from Radiohead’s new album ‘Hail To The Thief’ turned up on the internet months before the record was due to hit the shops.

‘Room On Fire’ is officially released in the UK on October 20. The single, ’12:51′ comes out two weeks earlier on October 6.
