After teasing something big earlier this week, Interpol have announced their sixth studio album, Marauder, out August 24 via Matador Records. The band revealed the news during a live stream press conference in Mexico City. The new LP marks the first time they've worked with an "unfamiliar producer" since 2007's Our Love to Admire. This time around they worked with Dave Frimann and recorded directly to two-inch tape at Tarbox Studios in New York.
In a press release about the album, vocalist Paul Banks said “Marauder is a facet of myself. That’s the guy that f*cks up friendships and does crazy sh*t. He taught me a lot, but it’s representative of a persona that’s best left in song. In a way, this album is like giving him a name and putting him to bed.”
They also shared the lead single "The Rover," which you can listen to above. Find the tracklisting below.
In support of the record, the band also revealed a run of international tour dates, which include two shows at California's Hollywood Bowl and Greek Theater, a set at Chicago's Riot Fest, and shows in New York and Brooklyn. Check out all the announced dates below.
