While he’s best known as the guitarist of the wildly popular alternative band the Strokes, Albert Hammond Jr. possesses his own solo discography that is tinged with emotional intensity, lyrical ingenuity, and unexpected euphoria, and that arguably goes above and beyond his collaborative work with the Strokes.
Now, Hammond has returned with a new single, a new album, and a new tour. Be sure to check out Hammond’s new track “Born Slippy” off his upcoming Momentary Masters, and don’t miss the acclaimed artist as he performs at venues such as Montreal’s La Sala Rossa, Toronto’s Opera House, and Vancouver’s Venue.

It is the early 2000s.
The music scene is about to be shaken to its core by a soon-to-be dominant commercial and cultural force. Across America, a new genre of alternative rock is brewing, as bands find inspiration in the garage rock and post-punk genres of the past. Characterized by stripped down guitar solos, raw vocals, and candid lyrics, this post-punk revival and new rock revolution would produce legendary music sensations such as the White Stripes and Interpol.
Under this aesthetically significant context, the Strokes emerged.
The Strokes represent harbingers of the post-punk revival and rise of the alternative genre. Through their 2001 debut album Is This It, the Strokes were established as saviors of the rock and roll genre. At the time, the Strokes were a breath of fresh air in a musical landscape that was dominated by the unrestrained rage of bands such as Limp Bizkit. On the critically lauded and commercially prosperous Is This It, the indie band channeled the dirty garage rock and catchy tunes that was reminiscent of iconic groups such as the Velvet Underground and the Beach Boys. Is This It was universally adored, and has been consistently ranked as one of the best albums of the new millennium.
Since the release of Is This It, the Strokes have crafted a stellar career, and have stayed true to their roots despite their enormous mainstream success. The group has continued to release acclaimed and successful albums, and has transcended into one of America’s most beloved bands.
As fans eagerly await the indie band’s next studio outing, we have just the thing to quench your thirst for new Strokes tunes. This year, Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. is set to release his third solo studio album, and it appears as though the record is going to feature the masterfully written tunes and catchy rhythms that we’ve come to expect from a Strokes record. In his past solo ventures, Hammond has embraced the sound of the Strokes, while also contributing his own emotional melodies, clean productions, and soft tones. Hammond’s third solo album Momentary Masters is set for a July 31st release, and will be produced by long-time Strokes collaborator Gus Oberg.
