The album, their first since 2007's 'Our Love To Admire,' was recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York before being mixed in London with producer Alan Moulder -- who can list Depeche Mode, the Smashing Pumpkins and theYeah Yeah Yeahs amongst past clients.
The intervening three years have seen Interpol's front man Paul Banks release a solo album under the moniker Julian Plenti, though the biggest event to affect the band since their third LP has been the departure of Carlos D. The bassist quit the group in May, though remained with them on the recording sessions and so appears on the new album; it's already been announced that he'll be replaced by former Slint and Zwan bassist Dave Pajo, whilst the group have also added the Secret Machines' vocalist Brandon Curtis to their live line up on keyboards and backing vocals.
As previously announced, the group are coming to the UK in the Autumn, their first date being in Nottingham on Nov. 24 before finishing with a double header at London's Brixton Academy on Dec. 6 and 7. For full details visit the band's site.
