Interpol : New Release Date For 4th Album, “Lights” Video, New U.S. Dates

June 23rd, 2010 at 8:49 am by Gerard

As you might’ve seen reported elsewhere, Interpol recently announced a September release date for their long-awaited, eponymous 4th album, the badly kept-secret portion of said scoop being that Matador would once again, be the band’s record label in North America after a one album stopover at Capitol Records. We’ll have more details soon about the different configurations available, pre-order info, etc. but can reveal the Alan Moulder-mixed ‘Interpol’ (CD/LP/digital) will be released on September 7, a week earlier than originally reported. Though an MP3 has already been in circulation, today marks the debut of the above video for “Lights”, directed by Charlie White.

In the wake of bassist Carlos D’s departure from the band following the completion of the new album, Paul, Daniel and Sam have augmented Interpol’s touring lineup to included David Pajo (Slint, Papa M, Yeah Yeah Yeahs) on bass and Secret Machines’ Brandon Curtis on keyboards. The new quintet will be on display starting tonight in Pittsburgh, with a number of additional dates just confirmed this morning. Though you can expect to see Interpol playing a ton of other North American cities this Autumn, the smaller club dates below are likely to sell out quickly.
