The Strokes Go Classy in 'Under Cover of Darkness' Video
On the great comeback train of 2011, the Strokes chug along happily, giving fans more material little by little.
Yesterday, a new, Radiohead-esque song from the band, titled "You're So Right," found its way online. Today, the garage rockers rev up the nostalgia with their first video in four years -- for the lead single off March 22's "Angles," "Under Cover of Darkness."

If fans ever doubted frontman Julian Casablancas' bad-assery, watch it and weep. Meanwhile, the rest of the band keeps it classy, rocking out with tails and suits. There's a vintage creepiness here, though, with the video's faded mansion setting channeling both HBO's "Boardwalk Empire" and old Hollywood.
