The End Causes Trouble

Posted by on September 23 at 10:43 AM

Our local alt rock commercial station, The End sent out a press release this morning claiming that their leak of the new Strokes single, “Juicebox” has pushed the release of the NY band’s latest CD to an earlier date. According to the station, the new Strokes record was supposed to come out early next year but due to the single’s placement on the End’s People’s Choice Countdown (and regular rotation) the band’s label, RCA, is “considering an earlier release date.” DJ Harms said in a statement, “We are not going to let the internet beat us as people’s first source for new music. If there is an unreleased song or record out there, we are going to find it, and we are going to play it.”
