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.
