Watch The Strokes’ first live performance of 2017

The Strokes are back on the road – and you can watch their first live set of 2017 right here.

The New Yorkers performed a 17-song set during their headline slot at Colombia’s Estéreo Picnic Festival last night (March 24).

The band opened with The Modern Age and also played fan favorites such as 12:51, Is This It, Soma and New York City Cops.

The encore included 80s Comedown Machine, Heart in a Cage, and Hard to Explain. You can watch fan footage from the performance below.

The Strokes released their Future Present Past EP last year, but have not released a full studio album since since 2013’s Comedown Machine.

The band, however, have been working on the follow-up for quite some time.

Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple’s Beats 1 radio last year guitarist Nick Valensi said, “I love being in [The Strokes], I love the weirdness.”

Jokingly, he added, “Donald Trump is producing [the next album]… It’s the five of us and all our issues. It’s going to be awesome music. Julian is psyched about it. He’s very moody so if you have him psyched about music it means were on the right track.”

In 2009, The Strokes’ 2001 debut album Is This It topped the 100 Greatest Albums Of The Decade list in a poll by NME magazine.
