Though The Stokes released their new album “The Comedown Machine” last year, the band didn't tour or conduct interviews. The lack of appearances from the guys last years caused many to speculate they called it day, but speaking to NME, guitarist Albert Hammond Jr addressed the rumors saying “There might be times when we're not doing things but I don't feel like we'll ever stop.” The wait is over for fans as the band announced they will make their live return at the Governors Ball in New York this June. As well as performing with The Strokes, frontman Julian Casablancas will perform as a solo artist. The lineup includes, Skrillex, Tyler the Creator, Interpol, Kurt Vile, Broken Bells, Spoon, Janelle Monae, Chance the rapper, Outkast, and Jack White and Vampire Weekend as headliners.

The three day event will take place on Randall's Island between June 6 and 8. For more information on The Strokes, visit their official website.
