Interpol Self-Titles Album, Adds Dave Pajo

An update to Interpol’s site confirms that the band’s forthcoming, fourth record will be the self-produced self-titled affair Interpol. And not so long after announcing an amicable split with bassist and principal mustache Carlos Dengler, the band’s stepped up with his replacement: Dave Pajo, Slint hero and guitarist, and apparently the primary pinch hitter of choice for the post-millennial downtown NYC cool kid set (last year he was the honorary fourth Yeah Yeah Yeah on tour). Remember, it’s D’s basslines on the record, so it’s just this tour to which Pajo’s bringing his brand of post-rock honed excellence. Interpol the record is due in September, while Interpol the band is due on the road later this month. They had to cancel many of their dates touring with U2 due to Bono’s back surgery, but there are still a slew lined up. They’re here:
