Interpol have confirmed that they have started work on their fifth studio album.

Writing on their official Twitter account, they gave an update on their recent activity by telling fans they had been writing new material.

Guitarist Daniel Kessler wrote earlier this week (August 14): "We had a good rehearsal yesterday. Started working on a new tune. We were all digging it.-DK."

He then added a further Tweet the following day, revealing: "And wouldn't ya know it... we started working on another new tune yesterday. August be a breeding ground.-DK."

The band released their fourth self-titled LP in 2010, with the album proving to be their last record with former bassist Carlos Dengler. Frontman Paul Banks, meanwhile, released his second solo effort 'Banks' last year. The record, which was the follow-up to his 2009 debut 'Julian Plenti Is... Skyscraper', was put out in October 2012.

Interpol re-released their debut album 'Turn On The Bright Lights' in November last year to celebrate its 10th anniversary. Discussing the reissue, which included stacks of 'forgotten material', the band said in a statement: "We never could have imagined that the album would have reached so many people throughout the world.

"We spent a good deal of time this past year digging through our archives and asking others to dig through theirs in the hopes of uncovering some forgotten material."

'Turn On The Bright Lights' was originally released in 2002, and was subsequently followed by 'Antics' in 2004 and 2007's 'Our Love To Admire' before 'Interpol' followed in 2010.
