Interpol are alive and well

Details of the new Interpol album have been confirmed. Marauder will be out on 24th August, and first single ‘The Rover’ can be heard here:

Marauder is a facet of myself,” says Interpol’s Paul Banks. “That’s the guy that fucks up friendships and does crazy shit. He taught me a lot, but it’s representative of a persona that’s best left in song. In a way, this album is like giving him a name and putting him to bed.”

Interpol have also confirmed an initial run of worldwide tour dates, in addition to a previously announced appearance at London’s Hyde Park with The Cure. They’ll also be back in London for a prestigious show at the Royal Albert Hall on 14th November.
