The Strokes’ Nickolai Fraiture tweets from the studio but Julian Casablancas is still cranky with his bandmates.

The band’s bassist has been tweeting about new music, only weeks after they released their long-awaited Angles album.

Fraiture tweeted “Super excited to go in to the studio today and work on some new ideas! I'll keep you posted...”, then clarified “For The Strokes, of course!” and delivered a studio photo of the band setting up.

In the meantime, singer Julian Casablancas has been griping to NME that he has become the band’s whipping boy.

He said, “It's hard for me sometimes because I do feel like people, if they could, would stab me to get to the top. I'm kidding of course … that's why the whole 'friend' thing is hard for me. We do interviews and they point the finger at me. They're my such good buddies that everything is my fault. We should have called the album Frenemies."

Since Angles was widely reported to have been recorded with the members all phoning in their parts, hopefully this next effort will unify the band again.
