The Libertines are a british band whose lead singer is hooked on heroin. That might be the band you're thinking of. I wouldn't call them extremely Strokes-like, but it could be them. They're actually touring right now minus their singer because of his heroin addiction.

Yeah, it's them. This story was also in the most recent issue of Blender.
