The Strokes have announced plans for a show on May 31 at the 1,800 capacity Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York.

The show will act as a warm up gig for the band's headline set at the Governors Ball festival on Randall's Island in New York City, which takes place June 6-8. Tickets for the show go on sale at midday ET on Friday May 16 - for more information visit thecapitoltheatre.com. Port Chester is roughly 25 miles from New York City.

Albert Hammond Jr recently said that The Strokes will release a new album before they tour again. The guitarist told Gigwise:

"I know that when The Strokes tour again, it will be because we put something out – even though we didn't tour the last one. Doing a few festivals before you put something out is kind of gearing up the big machine, it just kind of helps everyone get ready, mentally, financially and it brings you back to your audience. You can see the audience's reaction to your music and you just 'feel' again."

Albert Hammond Jr is currently on tour in UK and he has been playing material from The Strokes' 2013 album 'Comedown Machine' in his set. Fan footage of him playing 'One Way Trigger' at Newcastle's O2 Academy 2 on May 6 can be seen here.

Albert Hammond Jr's UK tour continues throughout May. He will play Bristol Fleece tonight (May 13) and finish the tour at London Village Underground on May 15.
