Julian Casablancas + The Voidz to sell new album ‘Tyranny’ for £2.27

The record follows The Strokes frontman's 2009 solo release 'Phrazes For The Young'

Julian Casablancas + The Voidz are set to release their debut album on September 23.

‘Tyranny’ will be the first album from The Strokes’ frontman with his current backing band, but follows his 2009 solo album ‘Phrazes For The Young’. The LP will come out on Casablancas’ own Cult Records and a digital pre-order of the record is available through the label’s website for $3.87 (£2.27).

The Voidz consist of Jeramy Gritter and Amir Yaghmai on guitar, Jeff Kite on keyboards, Jake Bercovici on bass and Alex Carapetis on drums. The record was produced by Shawn Everett.

Speaking about the album title, Casablancas comments: “Tyranny has come in many forms throughout history. Now, the good of business is put above anything else, as corporations have become the new ruling body. Most decisions seem to be made like ones of a medieval king: whatever makes profit while ignoring and repressing the truth about whatever suffering it may cause (like pop music, for that matter).”

The album, which will reportedly touch on world underground music from the 1970s and 1980s as well as hardcore and punk, will be supported by a US tour throughout October and November. No UK dates have been announced.
