We knew the Strokes were working on their new LP, but it looks like plans are firming up: Julian Casablancas says his band will headline Lollapalooza in August, and will have the new LP out in September. Their fourth album will be out nine years after Is This It. As Casablancas points out in a Chicago Tribune interview, that’s eight years longer than people thought the Strokes would last. The band will also headline the Isle Of Wright festival in June, with other dates probably on the way.
The Tribune also says that Lady Gaga, Green Day, the Arcade Fire, and a reunited Soundgarden will most likely round out Lollapalooza’s headliners.
