The Strokes share 'Threat of Joy' music video
The Strokes have shared the music video for their new song “Threat of Joy.” The clip is the first to feature the band together since the video for “Taken for a Fool,” off of 2011’s Angles.
“Threat of Joy” appears on the iconic New York band’s most recent EP, Future Present Past, which they released in May. Warren Fu, who’s behind videos like Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” and Haim’s “If I Could Change Your Mind,” directed the clip. The Strokes had previously shared a lyric video for Future Present Past opener “Drag Queen,” but “Threat of Joy” is the band’s first music video in support of the EP.
The Strokes played a hit-filled headlining set at New York’s Governors Ball earlier this month — along with a warm-up show at Port Chester’s Capitol Theatre days before — but are not currently on tour. Their only upcoming gig is a July appearance at Australia’s Splendor in the Grass.
