Earlier this week, Julian Casablancas and co. shared a cryptic teaser video for the album which saw the band reveal the release date for the record and was soundtracked by an instrumental ‘Overture’ filled with moody synths, which serves as the album’s opening track.

Now, the band have announced their third album ‘Like All Before You’ is set for digital release on September 20 and will be available on Vinyl starting October 18 (you can pre-save it here). ‘Like All Before You’ was created at the band’s home studio in Venice, CA as well as the renowned Vox Studios in Los Angeles.

The LP sees the band collaborate with producers Ivan Wayman (Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus, The War on Drugs), Justin Raisen (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Kim Gordon, Yves Tumor), and SAD PONY (Lil Yachty, Drake) on several tracks.

The Voidz’s most recent effort was 2018’s ‘Virtue’, which followed their 2014 debut effort ‘Tyranny’. In a four-star review, NME’s Rhian Daly called the record an “interesting, unusual and thought-provoking” effort that didn’t “lose their eccentric inventor touch”, with “a handful of pop-leaning moments present among the boundary-pushing ones.”

Meanwhile, Casablancas has continued to stay active as part of The Strokes. Last year, the band played All Points East in London alongside acts including Angel Olsen, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Walkmen, Girl in Red and The Strokes. In a March show in support of Chicago congressional candidate Kina Collins, The Strokes dusted off several live rarities, including the ‘Room on Fire’ cut ‘You Talk Way Too Much’.
