Back in 2001 the band led by Julian Casablancas burst into the market with its debut album ‘Is this it’, intent on blowing it up. The critics praised them and the audiences were at their feet. The Strokes became the tip of the iceberg of a renewed garage-rock scene. They were to blame for the resurgence, not only of a nostalgic sound, but also of the post-punk attitude that marked alternative music in the beginning of the new millennium. With five albums to their name and a meteoric career, the New York band will set foot on Bilbao BBK Live for the first time where they will run through the songs that have earned them recognition as one of the major 21st century bands.
