Since giving us a glimpse of their fourth album last month with the free download of lead-single “Lights” Interpol have had an eventful time. First they announced the departure of their iconic bassist Carlos Dengler, who has been with them since the start, and then they were forced to cancel the majority of their summer North American tour after Bono’s back inury caused the cancellation of U2’s summer schedule, for which the New Yorkers were set to open.

Now they’re back on track, giving us more details of their highly-anticipated fourth LP. In a post on their website they have informed us that it is due in mid-September and will be self-titled. The full, short-but-rambling passage reads as follows:

News About # 4

The month of September; summer ends, classes begin. The coming of a new season is in the air as autumn approaches. A time of year when the natural world slips into a slumber, and Interpol releases it’s fourth studio recording. The self titled, self produced, long-player will be available world wide in mid September. We can’t wait to share our new effort with all of you. We’ve just announced some shows and we look forward to see you soon in your neck of the woods.


That means it is arriving just in time for fans in Europe to hear it before they visit their shores. Interpol’s European tour spans the lasts over two months from late September to early December, touching dowin in Portugal, Spain, France, Germany, Austria and the UK. Full dates and ticket information can be found on their official website.

Replacing Carlos D on bass for their tour and the foreseeable future is Dave Pajo, formerly of Slint, who has tour with swathes of artists before, so should be a good fit.
