UPDATE: The Strokes aren’t touring in support of Comedown Machine, as if that’s news. On to the next one…

Albert blew up my Twitter feed tonight, answering a number of fan questions. The most newsworthy items were regarding The Strokes touring later this year, and his plans to support his new EP with a tour. He wrote this in response to a fan asking him if The Strokes were going to tour later this year for Comedown Machine…
At this point, it seems apparent that The Strokes won’t support their new album with a tour. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them focus on making their new record — I’ve twice written that this is the plan in recent months — and then tour when Strokes VI is released.
In the meantime, don’t be surprised to see Albert on tour later this year.
