As we previously reported, The Strokes are planning a headlining tour this Fall. The band recently pulled out of a supporting slot on the Weezer tour due after vocalist Julian Casablancas injured his knee. 

The band has yet to officially announce the tour details but MTV news is reporting tour dates they received from the bandís management that has the tour set to kick off in Portland, Maine on October 1st. 

The Strokes are currently scheduled to play three US dates this month with The White Stripes in Detroit (Aug 9) and New York City (Aug 14-15) before heading overseas to take part in the annual Leeds, Reading and  "Gig On The Green"  Festivals in the UK. 

Despite all of the hype and critical praise, to date the Strokes debut album ďIs This It?Ē has only sold a reported 640,000 copies since itís release last October. Which is a respectable amount but far less than expected with all of the buzz that has surrounding this group.
