The Strokes Perform "New York City Cops" Surrounded By Cops

NY rock titans The Strokes recently threw their support behind Democratic hopeful Bernie Sanders, performing at a rally for the Senator in Durham, New Hampshire last night.

The backdrop for the rally, like T-shirts being sold, turned Sanders' name into a logo resembling the band's own.

Reps for The Strokes, Durham Police Department as well as Bernie 2020 did not quickly react to Fox News' ask for remark.

The announcement may not have been a surprise to some fans, as the group hinted at the impending release of a new album titled The New Abnormal last month.

The Strokes announced several intimate European dates recently, and now it seems their new album is on the way.


Casablancas isn't one of rock's chattier frontpeople, but he ended the New Hampshire performance with a massive scoop.

At the end of their performance, Casablancas said "Oh yeah - album's coming out April 10th". Before this, the band screened an animated video for a song called "At the Door".

Frontman Julian Casablancas issued a statement before the rally, explaining, "We are honoured to be associated with such a dedicated, diligent, and trustworthy patriot - and fellow native New Yorker".

Prior to the band playing Casablancas gave high praise to Sanders, stating, "As the only truly non-corporate candidate, Bernie Sanders represents our only chance to overthrow corporate power and help return America to democracy". It doesn't take a genius to infer this is The New Abnormal's lead single. "That's why we support it".
