First Single From Angles, “Under Cover Of Darkness” To Be Released on February 9th

Song Available to Stream and Free Download for 48 Hours from TheStrokes.com
“Under Cover Of Darkness” Available to Purchase In The U.S. on February 15th


The Strokes are set to release their newest single, “Under Cover Of Darkness,” on February 9th via a stream on their website. The song will be available to download for free for 48 hours from www.thestrokes.com , and will arrive at radio on the same day. “Under Cover Of Darkness” will be available to purchase digitally in the US via iTunes on February 15th.

Rolling Stone had nothing but superlatives to say regarding “Under Cover Of Darkness,” awarding the song 4 stars. They proclaimed that the song “barrels into the bar with "Return to Form" written on its forehead…The Strokes give us that same old song one more time, primed and polished for a new age.”

The song is the band’s first released track from their highly anticipated upcoming album Angles, out on March 22nd via RCA records in the US, and March 21st via Rough Trade Records in the UK. Angles is the band’s first new release since 2006’s First Impressions of Earth and marks the ambition of that album with the immediacy of the band’s earlier albums Is This It (2001) and Room On Fire (2003). In 2010, the band returned to the road, playing and headlining major festivals in the United States and UK, including the Isle of Wight Festival, Lollapalooza, Hurricane Festival, Splendour In The Grass, Rockness, Outside Lands, and Austin City Limits. Time Out Chicago hailed the Lollapalooza performance as “the best set I’ve seen since covering Lollapalooza. Better than Radiohead in 2008. Better than… who headlined last year? …The crowd…was euphoric.”
