Following in the footsteps of Carlos D, Dave Pajo has left Interpol.

The band released a statement, citing a desire in Pajo to be at home with his family for the bassist’s departure. Pajo will be replaced by Brad Truax, who has a resume that includes Home, Soldiers of Fortune, Gang Gang Dance, The Broke Revue, Animal Collective, Cass McCombs, and White Magic. Truax will first play with the band in Hamburg on March 3rd. Below is the note from Pajo and you can read the band’s statement here.

“I would like to announce that I will no longer be performing live with Interpol on their upcoming campaign. I’ll be taking a break from touring to focus on family. There are no personal, artistic or health reasons—it’s really as simple as that!
I would like to thank Paul, Daniel, Sam, Brandon, everyone in the crew, and all of the Interpol fans for the remarkable support and patronage they have shown me during my time with them. I feel a tremendous amount of love and respect for everyone involved and will genuinely miss them.
I will continue to record and perform music, with bands as well as solo, I just won’t be touring as much.
I am truly grateful for the experience and look forward to enjoying Interpol in the future, as a fan and friend.
Walk in light, walk in darkness.
February 20, 2011”
