The Strokes are set to play this year's Lollapalooza festival, according to reports in the US.

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.
