Ahead of their performance at the Get Out The Vote rally, frontman Julian Casablancas opened up about the band supporting Sanders for the USA presidential election.
The Strokes concert was created to increase support for Sanders before the primary elections of the New Hampshire Democratic Party on Tuesday, and follow similar demonstrations with Bon Iver Y Vampiric Weekend before the Iowa assemblies last week.
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.More news: The Batman: First Look at Robert Pattinson in Batsuit
Having just announced their brand new album The New Abnormal, out April 10th, and a new track "At The Door" - The Strokes have also revealed details of a one-off show at London's Roundhouse next week.
The backdrop for the rally, like T-shirts being sold, turned Sanders' name into a logo resembling the band's own. The Strokes" social media accounts all teased a project called "The New Abnormal', and it's fair to assume that's the new album's title.
Although The Strokes have never been ones to side or discuss political issues, they went all out for their first political outing and gave an energy-filled performance to the largest Democratic rally in New Hampshire.More news: Queen Elizabeth's Grandson Peter Phillips Announces Divorce
