Julian Casablancas' The Voidz premieres new song, "Alien Crime Lord"

Cult Records

Julian Casablancas‘ band The Voidz has released a new song, “Alien Crime Lord.”

The track first premiered in the new Grand Theft Auto Online video game update, in which The Strokes frontman hosts his own in-game radio station.

In a statement about “Alien Crime Lord,” The Voidz says, “We wanted to make a song that sounded like Jean Claude Van Damme standing up on a speeding motorcycle while firing perfect bullets through the windshield of an oncoming nemesis, then finishing the job with a controlled flip over the top of the vehicle that ends in a maelstrom of denim and flames.”

To hear that for yourself, you can listen to “Alien Crime Lord” now via digital outlets.

The Voidz will also be performing “Alien Crime Lord” on NBC’s The Tonight Show this Thursday, December 17.

The Strokes, meanwhile, released their long-awaited new album The New Abnormal this past April.
