About The Strokes and other stops of the 2023 Asia tour
Before arriving in Singapore, The Strokes is slated to perform at several music festivals and concerts all over Asia. The band will play at the Asia World Expo in Hong Kong on 16 July, followed by a Bangkok concert at the Thunderdome on 18 July. Post this, they will fly to Indonesia for We The Fest and Malaysia for the Good Vibes Festival, both dated between 21 and 23 July.
After wrapping up these concerts, the New York City band has a headline performance at Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival on 28 July and a gig in Seoul at the Incheon Pentaport Rock Festival between 4 and 6 August.
Known for their “new era” indie rock music, the band has had a long journey from Is This It (2001) to their most recent album The New Abnormal (2020). The latter marked their sixth studio album and won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Album at the 2021 award ceremony.
The New Abnormal features previous hit tracks, including “Brooklyn Bridge To Chorus”, “Bad Decisions” and “At The Door” and is the band’s first full-length album in seven years. Hammond also dropped a new single “100-99” and released eight more tracks, which are part of his soon-to-be-released fifth album Melodies On Hiatus.
