Fresh X: Interpol "El Pintor" Corey O'Brien |

Fresh X: Interpol

It's been four years since the last Interpol album and it wasn't that much to talk about, but a lot can happen in four years.  Bands get some new perspective, perhaps some lineup changes and something new can emerge.

After hearing the first single, "All the Rage Back Home" I was certainly excited after being disappointed with the band's last two offerings. These new songs have pulse.

"El Pintor" doesn't drop until September 9th, so this is a little early even by 2014 standards as far as these pre-streams go. You can listen to the album over at NPR by clicking here.

Interpol is also playing The Depot on Friday, September 26th. Sounds like the perfect venue for this show. Buy your tickets here.

Fresh X: Interpol Drop New Track, Listen Here

Interpol have been missing in my musical mind for some time now.  What I always thought was stiff dance music, much like their obvious influence of Joy Division, they have been missed in my music consciousness. Though they released an album in 2010 it feels like a decade since we have heard something great from this band. 

They have lost their longtime bass player and have added a new keyboardist, but that is all behind the curtain stuff.  Paul Banks is still taking the reins and even playing bass here and for it we are left with the first Interpol song I have wanted to dance to since "Evil."

They have announced their new album in a statement on June 5th.  It will be called, "El Pintor" and released on September 9th. Here's the statement from the band:

"Hello Friends,

It’s been a long time coming but we’re finally ready to share some new album news. We’d like to announce the release of our upcoming new album, El Pintor. We wrote & recorded the bulk of the album in 2013 in NYC and finished mixing it in London during the early part of this year. We’re very excited to share the album with all of you. The album was recorded at Electric Lady Studios & Atomic Sound by Mr James Brown and mixed by Mr Alan Moulder at Assault & Battery studios. We had a lot of fun making this record and can’t wait for you to hear it.

The album will be released on September 9th on Matador (North, South and Central America) and September 8th in all other territories by [PIAS]/CO-OP. You can pre-order the album here.

We also took the opportunity to capture some background film footage of the recording of the album. A first in our history. You can view a clip here.

All the best, Interpol "

You can pre-order the album here.

Welcome back, Interpol. 

Here is the first track from "El Pintor", "All The Rage."
