Julian Casablancas maps tour with new band

, Staff

Julian Casablancas, best known as the frontman for The Strokes, has announced plans for a fall tour with his new side project. Touring in support of their forthcoming album Tyranny, Julian Casablancas + The Voidz will hit Boston for a tour-closing performance at the House of Blues on Wednesday, November 26. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster for $30 and $40.

Tyranny, which follows Casablancas’ 2009 solo debut album Phrazes for the Young, will be released on September 23 through his own label, Cult Records. Fans can get a taste of the new material with the video streaming below.

“Tyranny has come in many forms throughout history,” said Casablancas in a press release. “Now, the good of business is to put above anything else, as corporations have become the new ruling body. Most decisions seem to be made like ones of a medieval king: whatever makes profit while ignoring and repressing the truth about whatever suffering it may cause (like pop music, for that matter).”

Last year, Casablancas contributed guest vocals to Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories on the track “Instant Crush”.
