Albert Hammond, Jr. Beat Up a Pickpocket, and The Strokes are Back in the Studio
Tue, 15 Dec 2015 12:13:49
Over the weekend, The Strokes were in Monterrey, Mexico headlining the Live Out festival and also happened to drop by Victoria Records studio to rehearse and record some new music. However, it was not the most eye-catching piece of news to come from the band this past weekend, as a video surfaced of Albert Hammond, Jr. attacking a man who pickpocketed his wife. Not often one to draw attention for physical encounters, it appears pissing off Hammond Jr. is best avoided, and, certainly, everyone should keep their hands off his wife.
Watch Albert Hammond, Jr. lash out at a pickpocket:
The Strokes have been relatively quiet this past year, but Julian Casablancas hinted in September that the band may be returning to the studio. Apparently, they recorded some new drum tracks for their upcoming release. When that will actually be completed and available remains TBD.
