The Strokes are an American rock band formed in New York City in 1998, consisting of Julian Casablancas (lead vocals), Nick Valensi (guitar, keyboard, backing vocals), Albert Hammond, Jr. (rhythm guitar, keyboard, backing vocals), Nikolai Fraiture (bass) and Fabrizio Moretti (drums, percussion).

Met with widespread critical acclaim, the Strokes’ 2001 debut, Is This It,[5] helped usher in the garage rock revival movement of the early-21st century—and ranks number eight on Rolling Stone’s 100 Best Debut Albums of All Time,[6] number two on Rolling Stone’s 100 Best Albums of the 2000s,[7]199 on Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and number four in the NME top 500 albums of all time.

After its members embarked on a variety of side projects, the band regrouped for a fifth album, Comedown Machine, released on March 26, 2013.[8]The Strokes have sold over 5 million albums to date.[9]

On 26 May 2016, Julian Casablancas premiered “OBLIVIUS” on the debut of his new monthly radio show, “Culture Void”, on Sirius XMU. Cult Records announced the release of Future Present Past, a four-song EP by the Strokes, in addition to the exclusive signing of the band to its roster. The EP includes three original songs (“Drag Queen”, “OBLIVIUS”, and “Threat of Joy”), along with an additional remix of “OBLIVIUS” by drummer, Fab Moretti. The EP was released on June 3, in both digital and physical formats to coincide with the band’s headlining performance at Governors Ball Music Festival in New York City. “Future Present Past” was recorded over the past year in Austin and New York with the help of producer, Gus Oberg. The Strokes are currently at work on new material.
