The Strokes, who haven't graced the stage in about four years, headlined the UK's Isle of Wight festival this weekend, and reportedly rocked pretty hard. A few days earlier the band played a semi-secret set in London under the pseudonym Venison, to prepare for their headlining gig over the weekend &mdash footage of that was too shaky to really pass any judgement on their long-awaited return though, so the video from the Isle of Wight show is the first look we get.

Although the band's been working on an album since 2009, they haven't revealed any new material at the two shows so far, sticking to the old favorites with set lists including "12:51," "What Ever Happened," and "New York Cops." While fans are definitely pretty pumped about the reunion, the band themselves maybe not so much &mdash lead singer Julian Casablancas almost radiates apathy (or maybe that's just his rock-star cool) in interviews about the tour, and opted to record his tracks on the album separate from the rest of the group. So check out this weekend's videos of "Reptilia" and "Modern Age" below to see if the Strokes still pull it together after the past years of solo projects, and whether the summer of festivals will be all you anticipated. In the U.S., you can find them playing at Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, and Austin City Limits.
