The Strokes' guitarist Nick Valensi admits there are ''undertones of hostility and resentment'' in The Strokes and believes fans will be disappointed by their new album.
The group's guitarist insists he and his bandmates - Julian Casablancas, Albert Hammond Jr., Nikolai Fraiture and Fabrizio Moretti - got along while recording their long-awaited new album 'Angles' but feels their relations could be better.
He said: "The mood was and continues to be light and fun and playful, with mild undertones of hostility and resentment, which is just the way of this band. When we hang out and when we work on stuff, it's great but I'd be lying if I said there wasn't elements of hostility there. Undertones of hostility and resentment."
'Angles' is the group's first release in five years and Nick admits he thinks it took financial motivation to get the 'Last Nite' hitmakers back in the studio.
He added in an interview with MySpace Music: "It took time. Maybe everyone needed money or something. 'We gotta pay our mortgage so may as well get this going again.' "
Nick also believes that people will be disappointed by the album, simply because it has taken so long to be completed.
He said: "You Take That much time off and no matter what you do it's not going to be as good as people want it to be. I feel like no matter what the record is, or how hard we worked on it, or how much we like it, it's not going to live up to people's expectations only because of those five years between the last one and this one.
"If we had just released this a year or two after the last one, I imagine it would have gone better."
