"The Strokes performed at Bernie Sanders" #BerniebeatsTrump rally in New Hampshire.

The Strokes executed "New York City Cops" with an officer on phase at a Bernie 2020 rally in Durham, N.H. Earlier in the week, the band posted a silent video teasing what appears to be the record's title, The New Abnormal. They covered Talking Heads' "Burning Down the House" and performed their own classics, including "Someday", "Hard to Explain" and "New York City Cops". They played a couple of new songs and screened a music video for the unreleased "At The Door'". They also played "The Adults Are Talking" - which got its live debut during a LA show previous year - and premiered another newie called "Bad Decisions'". Speaking of which, Casablancasconfirmed the albumwould be arriving on April 10th.

The backdrop for the rally, like T-shirts being sold, turned Sanders' name into a logo resembling the band's own.

In a statement announcing the concert and supporting Sanders, Casablancas said: "We are honored to be associated with a patriot and fellow New Yorker so dedicated, diligent and reliable".

Prior to the band playing Casablancas gave high praise to Sanders, stating, "As the only truly non-corporate candidate, Bernie Sanders represents our only chance to overthrow corporate power and help return America to democracy".

The New Abnormal will be the Strokes' first full album since 2013's Comedown Machine.
