The Strokes are coming back with Comedown Machine.

The New York City rock band, which shot to fame with its garage-revival debut Is This It? in 2001, will release its fifth studio album March 26. The record, which follow's 2011's Angles, will be preceded by the lead single "All the Time."

Of course, last week, the band released the track "One Way Trigger," which makes it a sort of prequel -- The Hobbit to the new song's Lord of the Rings.

With a less than two-year gap between albums, the band has proved it is once again capable of speedy productivity. It took five years for The Strokes to release Angles after their previous album, First Impressions of Earth.
