Julian Casablancas + the Voidz Confirm New Album

'Tyranny' is an anti-commercial gesture...

Making no secret of his intention to record fresh solo material, Julian Casablancas has been in a feverish mood of late.

Unveiling plans for a new album, 'Tyranny' is set to emerge later this year under the banner of Julian Casablancas + the Voidz.

According to a press statement from Julian Casablancas, the album takes aim at current corporate culture: "Tyranny has come in many forms throughout history. Now, the good of business is 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)."

Available to pre-order now, a short preview of 'Tyranny' is also streaming online.

Julian Casablancas + the Voidz are set to release 'Tyranny' on September 23rd via Cult Records.
