The Strokes have previewed their upcoming EP Future Past Present.

It’s the band’s first release since their 2013 album Comedown Machine, and is due out on June 3. Songs they’ve made available to stream include Oblivius, Drag Queen and Threat Of Joy. They can be heard on Spotify.

In a video interview shared by their record label, drummer Fab Moretti says: “One thing that I love about being in this band is that I feel like I’m constantly surprised and excited to see what comes up next. One thing that I’ve learnt from working with other people every once in a while, is that I don’t have the level of trust that I have with them with anybody else.”

Future Present Past can be pre-ordered via Cult Records. It can also be pre-ordered digitally on iTunes (opens in new tab) and Amazon (opens in new tab).

The Strokes tour dates 2016

May 31: Port Chester Capitol Theatre, NY

Former news desk member Christina joined the team in late 2015 and although her time working on online rock news was fairly brief, she made a huge impact by contributing close to 1500 stories. Christina also interviewed artists including Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and worked at the Download festival. In late 2016, Christina left rock journalism to pursue a career in current affairs. That's proved to be a massive success and in 2021, she was named Local Weekly Feature Writer of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards.
