The Strokes have confirmed that they will release new album 'Comedown Machine' on March 25.

The title is the same one discovered on an album sleeve by fans who found an errant link in the coding of the band's official website last night (January 29). An official statement from The Strokes record label Rough Trade confirmed that the band's fifth album will be released in March with new single 'All The Time' preceding it.

The Strokes surprised fans last week when they released new track 'One Way Trigger' as a free download. Scroll down to hear the track now.

Last summer, NME confirmed 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.

However, guitarist Albert Hammond Jr's father – Albert Hammond Sr – revealed that the reports were true and the band were in the process of finishing up their fifth studio album.

Asked if the band were recording, Hammond Sr said: "Albert says that the stuff they're doing is incredible. They're doing it themselves with their friend, engineer and producer. He just says, 'Dad, it's incredible'."

'Comedown Machine' will be The Strokes fifth studio album following 'Is This it?', 'Room On Fire', 'First Impressions of Earth' 'and 'Angles'.
