When the Strokes didn’t tour in support of their most recent release, Comedown Machine, rumors swirled that the band would soon call it quits. But if you believe guitarist Albert Hammond Jr., the Strokes are most certainly still together. In fact, he hopes the guys will get back together to do some Strokes-related business soon.
“At some point we will do something and we will speak about it wholly and it will feel good,” Hammond Jr. told NME. “The Strokes are always…going to have something. I’m not saying that’s the word from the band, just that's how I look at it, how it feels -- like we’ve gone past the point of not doing stuff.”
Comedown Machine , which marked the band’s fifth studio album, debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard 200 albums its debut week out, pushing 41,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen Soundscan.
