Watch: The Strokes Rip Through “Threat of Joy” on Jimmy Kimmel

From 'Future Present Past' EP

Following the release of a music video for “Threat of Joy”, The Strokes have taken their new single to Jimmy Kimmel Live! for a late night performance.

Initially, the band had planned to release a video for “OBLIVIUS” from the Future Present Past EP, but was blocked due to it’s “highly politicized” nature. In response, the band shared a self-reflexive video for “Threat of Joy” that exaggerates their recent dilemma.

Check out the live performance in the player above. Make sure you stay until the end for Julian Casablanca’s non-surprising mic drop walk out.
