I should really keep up with the ever-moving internet. I’m sorry I don’t update enough. I shall keep you all posted for further updates.

Don’t forget to check our website!

Ciao for now!

piperpackshaw-deactivated201311 asked: Albert, what are your thoughts on song leaks?
I can't imagine you would be too fond of them....
I'm currently 'Tumblr arguing' with a girl about being a loyal Strokes fan and waiting for UCoD to be released. She believes nothing to be wrong with illegally downloading it.
I've got your back bro.

I don’t like leaks. Emphasis on the word ‘illegal’ in “illegal downloading”. We had it for free on our website for 48 hours, anyways, but I have a feeling this is an old message.

valensisangles asked: hi mr. hammond,
your music in a band and as a solo artist is amazing and you are AWESOME.
im very excited about the new single (and album)
if you come to switzerland or anywhere close by i will most definitely be coming to the concert
SWEET

Wow, thank you so much.

New tour dates should be announced soon by Ryan. He doesn’t trust me anymore with news from the band anymore.

I LOVE YOU !! thank you so much for that single, tonight I feel blessed !

Thank you! Don’t die! We love all our fans, you’re too kind!

deathcrab asked: can you deliver a message to julian for me when you have a minute, preferably transferred to the format of a ransom note "IF I CAN'T HAVE U....NO ONE CAN" and if you could splatter some blood on the paper as well i think that'd be a nice touch hey thanks albert you're the best!!!

Well this is a bit morbid….

I can’t sleep… too excited for Angles to come out!

I’ll answer a few of your questions for now.

Feb 08

50shadesofbritpop asked: heeyy albert :)

just wanted to thank you and your lovely band for making such great music. and for just being awesome. i remember hearing "is this it" in 2001 when i was 7 years old, and it totally blew my mind even as a kid haha (and from there i was hooked on you guys). you all are such interesting and amazing people, and i'm so glad you've inspired me and tons of other people to play instruments, write music, or simply listen to more of your work. so thank you so much! i genuinely salute you for being the coolest man ever.

and, of course, i'm insanely looking forward to your 4th album.

I’m so glad that people of all ages enjoy our music!

Thank you so much.

Now I'm just waiting for the 4th album... I have to tell you that i'm ecstatic !
& most of all, i'm waiting for the world tour (don't forget France) !
so thank you for the happiness you bring to me...thank you, thank you, thank you !
I hope one day my dream will come true and I will meet all of you ! In french we say "tant qu'il y a de la vie il ya de l'espoir" so lets hope ;)
Albert you're amazing ! take care xoxo

-tangiblerecords-deactivated201 asked: Did you write any of the songs on the new album?

I wrote all of them.

tressiehurley asked: have nothing to ask ... stumbled across this site ... can't stop laughing my ass off over some of the questions asked of you!! Nice witty, evasive responses, tho! You should consider a career in politics -- I've worked for enough of them to know!!!

A politician? Oh dear, no.
