Another person tweeted: ''At @LandmarkFestDC, @Casablancas_J just confirmed @thestrokes are in the studio'' while yet another tweet read: ''We'll be back in the studio'' - Julian Casablancas :') #thestrokes #LandmarkFestDC (sic).''

Julian, also fronts The Voidz, and previously insisted he would like to work with both bands if he can.

Speaking about getting back in the studio with The Strokes, he said: ''It's the first time we've been exclusively writing since 'Comedown Machine'. 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.''
