Tyranny, the first non-Strokes album from Julian Casablancas since 2009’s Phrazes for the Young, and the first with his new backing band The Voidz, will be released on September 23rd. A pre-order of the album is currently available from the Cult Records site (http://www.cultrecords.com/tyranny/) for $3.87.
Speaking about the album title, Casablancas comments, “Tyranny has come in many forms throughout history. Now, the good of business is put above anything else, as corporations have become the new ruling body. Most decisions seem to be made like ones of a medieval king: whatever makes profit while ignoring and repressing the truth about whatever suffering it may cause (like pop music, for that matter).”
