The Strokes recently released the Future Present Past EP via Cult. Now they have announced that they are playing the inaugural City of Angels Benefit Concert at the Wiltern Theatre on July 25. It will be the band's only Los Angeles show for the rest of 2016 and "will raise funds for three local non-profit organizations providing essential resources, services and hope to the homeless in Los Angeles." The show will also benefit the Downtown Women's Center.

Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas had this to say about the event in a press release: "Homelessness and mental health are big issues in LA and we're happy to do a little something that can hopefully help a bit. The Center in Hollywood and Waste Not Want Not Now are great, well-intentioned and trustworthy charities doing wonderful work."

Tickets will go on sale this Thursday, July 7, at 12:00 p.m. at Ticketmaster here

The Future Present Past EP contains three new songs and one remix. Below is the video for "Threat of Joy."
