The Strokes Announce Release Of Their Fifth Studio Album

The rockers put fans out of their misery and gave release date of 'Comedown Machine'

Almost two years ago they revealed that they had gone into the studio to start recording their fifth album - and today, after a long wait, The Strokes finally announced a release date!

The New York rockers will release their latest offering called 'Comedown Machine' on March 26th, according to RCA, the band's record label.

This will no doubt put their die-hards out of their misery after last week they were teased with a sneak-peak of new track 'One Way Trigger', but that won't be the first single off the album - according to Seattle radio station 107.7 The End.

The album is the follow-up to their 2011 LP 'Angles, and is available for pre-order through the band's website.

The new album has been shrouded in mystery and very little is known about the new material, but in June 2011, bassist Nikolai Fraiture told Rolling Stone the band were "trying not to lose momentum by taking time off and having to reboot the whole system."

He added: "We're bringing in parts and ideas and kind of just working on those and trying to make sense of them, coming from five different people."

Are you excited about the new album?
