Interpol's Carlos Dengler has quit the group, the band have announced.

The New York outfit explained in a mailout that the bassist had contributed to the group's recently completed fourth album, but would no longer continue his involvement in Interpol.

"After the completion of the album, Carlos informed the rest of us that he would be leaving the band. He has decided to follow another path, and to pursue new goals," they wrote.

"This separation is amicable, and we whole-heartedly wish him great happiness and success. We will remain, as always, deeply respectful fans of this blazingly talented individual."

Dengler has recently been involved in soundtrack work for film, television and adverts which he has showcased at Carlosdengler.com. Interpol went on to say the band will tour with a series of replacements for the bassist.

"We can tell you that we have some very exciting new recruits joining us on the road. So stay tuned - we will promptly be revealing the identities of these illustrious players," they explained.

The band also spoke briefly about their fourth album, explaining: "It was recorded at Electric Lady Studios, New York, and mixed with Alan Moulder at Assault And Battery, London. The four of us poured our collective heart into this music and we are very proud and excited to share it. It's a heavy record. But we're feeling limber; and we're going to carry it all around the world for you. Touring begins this summer, so check soon for announcements and show dates."

Interpol recently released a track from their new album sessions, 'Lights', as a free download, and said they expected to preview more material soon.
