Future Present Past, as the record is dubbed, debuts on June 3 (though, currently on Spotify), via singer Julian Casablancas’ own Cult Records imprint.

While native advertising has been spotted at the Bowery graffiti wall (i.e. projections), there is also a dedicated pop-up stunt in the offing to celebrate the release. Right in the band’s former Lower East Side stomping grounds.

The temporary shop – located at 352 Bowery, bows on Monday (Memorial Day), and will remain open through June 5 (12pm-9pm). According to NME, the special midnight launch party is is June 2 with “special guest DJ sets, to be announced soon.”

352 Bowery was previously home to Environment Furniture, which shuttered back in late December. Fashion designer Dexter Chasten launched a store in half of the commercial space a couple months ago; The Strokes are presumably taking the other half.
