American rockers The Strokes have put back the release date of their planned live album, because they were unhappy with its quality.

The REPTILIA singers immortalised their 2003 Christmas shows at London's Alexandra Palace on CD and planned to release it in December (04).

But frontman Julian Casablancas changed his mind when he went into the studio to listen to the album after it had been mastered.

The group is now working on its third album with producer GORDON RAPHAEL in New York and is set to release THE END HAS NO END as a single in November (04). They have not yet revealed what they plan to do with the live album.
