Bad news babes, we might not be hearing from The Strokes for a long, long time.
When asked about touring after their London gig coming up this month, guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. made their future look pretty bleak:
I don’t even know if we’re going to play any more shows…I don’t know if London might be our last show, you know what I mean? People think I’m lying but I’m just tired of trying to make some positive spin, but I’ve got no idea. So I take each one like it’s my last and I hold and I cherish it.
Considering the bandmates pretty much hate each other, I'm surprised they've lasted this long. They're all going after solo careers and touring with their other projects so this might finally be the last we hear of The Strokes.
(as long as Julian keeps supplying me with killer 80s dance tracks then I'll be happy)
Let's look back at the good old days, shall we?

@beywatch They are just really open about how happy they are to be apart from each other. I'm pretty sure Julian said something about how he has never felt happier and freer as an artist than when he left the Strokes for his solo work.
REALLY??? That's a shame. I always thought they had a good energy together. I saw a concert doc they released a long time ago where it looked like they were having a lot of fun together.
@beywatch they're all pretty much insane. "Angles" (their most recent album) was recorded without one single instance of them all being in the same room. Casablancas and Hammond Jr. can hardly look at one another - plus Hammond's got some serious drug troubles. Good to remember the good days, though @caricakes
@jeff4122 I had no idea! That's such a shame. Especially about Albert Hammond Jr. He was always my favorite member.
No no no no!!!!! It'll be like the Libertines all over again for me. (Luckily they're back) but I can't lose the Strokes! I can't! 😓
