On the great comeback train of 2011, the Strokes chug along happily, giving fans more material little by little.


The Strokes Release New Single, 'Under Cover of Darkness,' as Free Download

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.
