Even as frontman Julian Casablancas gears up for his sophomore solo album, The Strokes have remained relatively active in 2014. The band played their first show in three years in May of this year and have gone to headline Governors Ball Music Festival and FYF Fest. As for the possibility of new music, Casablancas addressed that question in a recent interview with BBC Radio 6 (via NME).

According to Casablancas, the band plans to meet up in January to “work on some ideas,” adding, “Everyone is psyched. Everything is in a really cool place.”

Casablancas credited their recent shows as helping each of the band’s five members get on the same page.”I don’t know if we ever had that good a working friendship foundation [in our] work relationship, but now we finally have that. We’ll always have the creative vibe.”

The Strokes have released two albums — 2011’s Angles and 2013’s Comedown Machine — since ending a lengthy hiatus in 2010.

Below, watch them perform “The End Has No End” at FYF Fest last month.
