It has been claimed that The Strokes have titled their new album 'Comedown Machine'.

The title was discovered by Reddit user @andersonenvy who found a link in the code used on The Strokes official website which led to a cached image revealing the album title and artwork (see above). The image, thought to be the album cover, is styled on an old-fashioned RCA tape reel box. It lists a running time of 37m and 49 seconds and bears the words "extra strength", "splice free" and "professional standard".

Though not yet confirmed by anyone linked to the band, the find has led Strokes fans around the world to speculate that 'Comedown Machine' will be the title of the band's next album.

The album will include new single 'One Way Trigger', the lyrics to which lead singer Julian Casablancas recently posted on his official website alongside a picture of himself and guitarist Albert Hammond Jr driving off a cliff. Scroll down to see the image.

To further confuse matters, Casablancas also posted two messages on Twitter which appear to suggest the word "Rollerblades" could be involved in the album title. The frontman posted two pictures, one of a sign spelling out the word rollerblades in a jumbled fashion and another image of a girl wearing a pair of rollerblades. Casablancas captioned the latter image "from the new LP".

Last summer, NME broke the news that The Strokes were working on the follow-up to 2011's 'Angles'. Reports that the band had been working on new material at the famous Electric Lady Studios in their home city of New York were quickly denied by their management and record label.
