Julian Casablancas + The Voidz made their return to the stage over the weekend with a secret show in Los Angeles.
The former Strokes man, who has only released one record with his side project in the shape of 2014’s Tyranny, but has since confirmed that band will tour in October by playing a series of shows in south America.
Far Out reported that guitarist Jeramy ‘Beardo’ Gritter hinted at a new record but refused to release any new details.
Now, in the wake of the news that The Strokes have dismissed any chance of an immediate new release, Julian Casablancas took the decision to confirm a new solo record.
“Gearing up for TheVoidz actually. will have some new music for everyone to publicly judge soon,” he tweeted.
In preparation, the band lined up at the Moroccan Lounge in LA billed as band ‘YouTube Comments’ in order not to arouse suspicion before playing a bunch of new material. Here’s some fan footage from the lucky people who attended:
