So, so exciting!

The Strokes have reunited for the first time since October of 2006, and performed a secret show in London on Wednesday night!!

Playing under the alias Venison at the venue Dingwalls, the band reportedly performed 18 songs, none of which were new tracks, unfortunately, but we don't care!

We're thrilled! We've missed ALL of you bbs!

They'll apparently be headlining the Isle of Wright Festival on Saturday and RockNess on Sunday, and we're hearing a fourth album is in the works!

Excellent!! It's about time!!

What do U think?? Are U excited for the glorious return of The Strokes??

    I am so excited they are back together again. They are the greatest band out there…. love them!



  2. 2

    I hope no one goes running around trying to find tickets to the "Isle of Wright" show you've spoken of… It's called the Isle of Wight!



  3. 3

    woohoo!



  4. 4

    This excitement sure is surprising from the same ass that just questioned not too long ago as to whether or not the Strokes were still relevant. You're a fucking lemming Perez!

    Didn't miss them that much and Julian's solo album was enough to keep me happy.



  6. 6

    soooo excited! i'm always impressed with them. i think they have made some of the best rock records ever. and they are fucking hot.



  7. 7

    YES!!! I'M SO EXCITED!



  8. 8

    I'M SO EXCITED!! I'm seeing them at Lollapalooza!!!

    Uh, just last month you posted about The Strokes comeback and asked if they were even still relevant? Now all the sudden you're peeing your pants with excitement? Make sure you tell all the people who post articles for you to not forget who's on your "nice" list and who isn't. Your opinions flipflop back and forth so much, likely all influenced by behind the scenes money and promotion deals. Chump

    let the wanking begin!

    my pants just flew off.

    Glad to see they pulled their faces out of their bags of coke long enough to make an album. The band is nice but Julian is a total fucking self important douchebag.

    You fucking hypocrite. Less than a month ago you were going on about how irrelevant they were, and now you're so excited?

    Just do all of us long time strokes fans a favor: Lay off posting stuff about them. Just do one nice thing in your life. JUST ONE. Thats all I ask.

    For alot of people the strokes dont mean anything, but for the few die hards they mean everything. We dont want all the idiots following your blog to follow them too.

    The strokes didn't all of the sudden come to us. We have loved them for 10 years. Stop acting like you know, or like you're even as excited as us. You don't understand. You haven't been waiting these 4 years. Or we would have heard about you being excited BEFORE THE SHOW HAPPENED.

    Just stop or at least get your facts straight.

    It takes that many doods to make they're crap sound ? what a joke



  16. 16

    Re: ihatethis24 – I sent this comment to Perez because I completely agree with you!!



  17. 17

    FUYOUPEREZ - MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY!



  18. 18

    Weird that Perez suddenly likes them so much, but …

    This is awesome news!!! They've been my favorite band since I was thirteen. I'm 20 now and I still love them! Hopefully they'll come to mainland Europe as well.

    I love The Strokes.. but last month you put up a post bitching about The Stokes and laughing off their comeback. Which basically means that someone is giving you money. I don't mind sell outs, everyone has to make a buck.. but what makes me sick about you is how you ass ram people for being sell outs and famewhores and you're worse than a combination of John Gosslin and Michael Lohan. You're one bottom feeding fucker.



  20. 20

    pretty sure you said something last time about how they weren't relevant anymore. check yoself, holmes.



  21. 21

    who???



  22. 22

    Yeah, I also remember the post not so long ago taking the piss out of their 'comeback'. Fickle much? However, as one post above said, Perez needs to remind his team who to like and who not to like. As if. But hooray! The fucking Strokes!!!!!!



  23. 23

    yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! :D :D



  24. 24

    i'm glad youre singing such a different tune. in your last strokes related article you claimed that they "werent even relevant" or something like that.

    stop being so fake, perez.



  25. 25

    its really funny how fast people change their mind… a couple weeks ago you're asking if they still ”relevant”



  26. 26

    funny bc when you posted about their new album, you said no one would care…..fucking fake pig face you are.



  27. 27

    HELL YES, I'M EXCITED! So, so glad that they're back together again! But…
    I thought you hated The Strokes? What about the couple of posts where you didn't care and all of that? A little hypocritical, don't you think?



  28. 28

    I'M SO EXCITED….The Strokes Rocks!!!



  29. 29

    FASCINANTE .!……I 'M SO EXCITED, THE STROKES ROCKS!!!!!!!!!



  30. 30

    You're a two-faced ass Perez, a month or two ago you wrote an article "The Strokes Reunite - Does Anyone Care?" Now what, you realize it's legitimate and you looked like an idiot?

    I love the Strokes and I'd rather not share the same music interests as you, so you can go back to hating them and being an ignorant fuck.



  31. 31

    Isle of WIGHT! It's not that fucking hard! And it's not "apparently" either, they've been booked to play it for months. Do your research.



  32. 32

    I am incredibly excited. Although I loved Julian's solo album, I still love the Strokes more. Wish I was going to Splendour.



  33. 33

    They're doing Hamburg (this for sovietkitsch) next week and then they're off to Australia… So I think you can say they're relevant….And Perez - Beyonce wasn't watching Jayzee in London last night - unless it was on a tv he was headlining at the IOW festival where the "irrelavant Strokes are headlining tonight……Get your facts right.

    Great to have them back and I can't wait for the new album (delayed until next year). Hope it's as good as the first two or even Julian's solo album, I just think First Impressions of Earth was really inconsistent.

    Jules is a sweetheart too by the way, he's actually nice to his gay fans.



  35. 35

    Isle of wrong.

    I have a feeling that their album could be incredibly bad but I hope that I'm wrong.



  36. 36

    I'm super excited. I love The Strokes and I think about what became of them whenever they come up on my iPod.



  37. 37

    sooooooooooooooooooo excited. i love the strokes so soo much anyone know if theyll be heading to california any time soon? i want to see them soo baddlyy
