Meanwhile, frontman Julian Casablancas performed with his band The Voidz on the Friday night (May 29), covering The Strokes’ ‘Vision Of Division’, which provoked a hilarious response from Strokes bandmate Albert Hammond Jr.

The Strokes made their live return last month (May 8) at Atlanta’s Shaky Knees Festival. See photos of the gig here. They are also set to play their first UK gig in five years when they headline the British Summer Time Festival in London’s Hyde Park on June 18.

The Strokes released their last album ‘Comedown Machine’ in 2013, with frontman Casablancas recently revealing that the band are working on new music.
