Interpol announced their forthcoming fifth album, El Pintor, last month, and followed that with a live video of album track “Anywhere,” which they’d actually debuted back in March (along with another new one, “My Desire”). So “All The Rage Back Home” is technically the third song we’ve heard from El Pintor, but it’s the first single, and the first studio recording. Even going in totally blind, anyone who’s heard more than, say, six minutes of Interpol’s music in the past would recognize them as the authors of “All The Rage Back Home” within the first second of the song (not exaggerating). And that signature is pretty clear for the track’s remaining 265-or-so seconds. This is to say, if you’re a fan of Interpol, you’ll have no reason not to be a fan of this song. The accompanying video was co-directed by the band’s frontman Paul Banks and Sophia Peer, and you can watch/listen below.
