The hotly-anticipated second album from New York rockers The Strokes has reportedly been leaked onto the internet.

According to music website NME.COM, many fan sites for the last night band reported that ten of the 11 tracks from ROOM ON FIRE became available online over the weekend (27/28SEP03).

The album is officially released in Britain on 20 October (03) and the band's new single, 12:51, on 6 October (03).

The Strokes are just one of many bands who have seen their music appear on the internet before its release. Radiohead's album Hail To The Thief was leaked on the web months before it hit the shops in June (03).
