Interpol Haven’t Spoken To Carlos D Since He Quit

In a new interview with NME, Interpol admitted that they haven’t had any contact with former bassist Carlos Dengler (better known as Carlos D) since he left the band in 2010. Drummer Sam Fogarino says that, while they have heard some news through friends of friends, they haven’t checked up on the former member. “If I were 10 years younger, maybe I’d go and snoop around, check out what he’s up to, but no, I’m pretty in and out there nowadays,” Fogarino said. After Dengler’s departure, singer Paul Banks took over on bass. When asked about how the band changed after the lineup switch, Fogarino said, “What Carlos brought to the band became a huge part of the sound. You couldn’t take it away. Paul had a lot of respect for that. He knew whatever he did had to respect that. It couldn’t be a template thing.” You can read more from the interview here.
