The "Two Kinds of Happiness" rockers performed a set at Sanders' rally in Durham, New Hampshire on February 10.
Ahead of their performance at the Get Out The Vote rally, frontman Julian Casablancas opened up about the band supporting Sanders for the U.S. presidential election.
"We are honored to be associated with such a dedicated, diligent, & trustworthy patriot - and fellow native New Yorker! As the only truly non-corporate candidate, Bernie Sanders represents our only chance to overthrow corporate power and help return America to democracy. This is why we support him," he explained in a statement.
During their set, the Strokes performed fans' favorites such as "Someday," "Hard to Explain," and "New York City Cops," along with the brand new "Bad Decisions."
They also premiered a new animated video for the yet-to-be-released "At the Door," which follows a series of characters in a space dystopia.
Before concluding their performance, Casablancas announced that the band's long-awaited new studio album will arrive as soon as April 10.
Details about the much-anticipated follow-up to 2013's "Comedown Machine" are still scarce to this date, as the Strokes still have to reveal the album's title or tracklist.
Casablancas and his bandmates have been hinting at a new project titled "The New Abnormal" in recent weeks, with guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. sharing a Basquiat-inspired artwork along with the caption "You think you've been waiting. But the wait has just begun... Welcome to #basquiat #thenewabnormal #thestrokes2020."
In the past few months, the quintet debuted the new songs "The Adults Are Talking" and "Ode to the Mets," without confirming whether they will be featured on their forthcoming fifth studio album.
In addition to be gearing towards the release of their new LP, the Strokes will soon be performing across North America, with concerts planned on March 5 in Vancouver, British Columbia; March 9 in Seattle, Washington; and March 14 in Los Angeles, California.
