Julian Casablancas Wants Nothing To Do With The Strokes After The Release Of Their New Album?

Is Julian Casablancas leaving The Strokes after the release of their new album?

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the 37-year-old rockstar has bravely expressed his disappointment on how the band is moving forward.

"Here's the thing, the Strokes, the relationship is good now," Casablancas explained of the band's relationship. "The Strokes was my life. It was everything and I put everything into it - it was a journey that I wanted to keep moving forward, but I couldn't do that anymore and it was very frustrating."

He then compared his band to a sports game saying, "So it took all this time to getting round to almost starting a new band to get to the point where I can continue to do what I set out to do from the beginning. It's like if we had the best team ever and before the championship people started celebrating and not practicing. And we still have to play the playoffs."

And while he admitted to feeling frustrated with how The Strokes is moving now, he did confirm that he is already writing songs for a new album following the 2013 release of "Comedown Machine."

"It's the first time [the Strokes have] been exclusively writing since 'Comedown Machine,'" Casablancas revealed. "We're planning on recording stuff. I still think we could do cool things and I'll do that. I'd like to do both [bands] really if I could."

Will this be the last album for Julian Casablancas and The Strokes?

Well that remains to be seen after the rock band releases their upcoming record.
