Interpol reveal 'El Pintor' making-of documentary – watch Interpol Tickets

The clip is the first time the band have filmed behind the scenes while making an album

Interpol have shared a glimpse into the making of their new album, 'El Pintor'.

The behind-the-scenes documentary features in-depth interviews with all three members of the band, who discuss frontman Paul Banks taking over bass duties following the departure of Carlos Dengler, their headline stint on the NME Awards Tour with Austin, Texas and coming back together after a break. You can watch the documentary at the top of the page, via DIY.

Speaking to NME in the brand new issue, which is on newsstands now or available digitally, the band – now formed of singer Paul Banks, guitarist Daniel Kessler and drummer Sam Fogarino – admitted that none of the band have been in contact with former bassist Dengler since his departure in 2010.

"If I were 10 years younger, maybe I’d go and snoop around, check out what he’s up to, but no, I’m pretty in and out there nowadays," says Fogarino of the situation.

The admission comes as part of an extensive cover feature with the New York band, in which the trio – who will release their fifth studio LP on Monday (September 8) – talk openly about the departure of Dengler and their subsequent regrouping as a three-piece.

Discussing whether there was ever any potential for the band to split after losing a member, singer Paul Banks confirmed that this was never on the cards. "We’d made an album. There was just no doubt in my mind that we were going to go out and play that tour," he said, referring to the band's self-titled 2010 LP, which was released shortly after D's resignation.
