According to the band's official website, their fourth LP will be self-titled and is set to come out in September . Meanwhile, the new record will benefit from the contributions of new bass player Dave Pajo.
Pitchfork reports that Pajo, a native of Louisville, Kentucky and arguably best known for his time in Slint, replaces previous bassist Carlos D after it was revealed he left the band earlier this year.
Pajo toured with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs last year and has also worked with Tortoise, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Stereolab and Zwan. In addition, he has released a steady stream of solo albums over the years. Interpol have also announced that Brandon Curtis of Secret Machines will be joining them for upcoming live dates.
The news of a new album and a new member completes a rough few months for Interpol after the departure of Carlos D, as well as having to cancel dates supporting U2 after Bono's back injury. All being well, the four-piece will undertake a European tour later this year, which climaxes with two shows at O2 Academy Brixton on Dec 6 and 7.
