Interpol begin work on ‘vital’ fourth album

Band rehearsing new songs

Interpol have begun rehearsing new songs set for their fourth studio album.

In a note posted up on the New York band’s official website, Interpolnyc.com, the band described the new sounds as sounding “vital” and claimed they felt like a “new band”.

They wrote: “Now the band has reconvened, and we are rehearsing new songs. We find ourselves marvelling at the tremendous focus that has defined our early rehearsals for this, our fourth effort.

“All kidding aside, we feel like a new band. Once again, we have no concept to this batch of songwriting. There is rarely any intention to this process. We just make the music.

“And without going into too much detail, the songs sound vital. It’s as though we’ve hit upon a balance between our urgency and our calm. And true to our better work, this is music that unravels over time.

“We anticipate that, once it’s done, you high-minded folks will welcome the music…into your bedrooms… to swagger and breathe… It’s still early, yet, though. We will keep you posted.”

The band’s next album will be the follow-up to 2007’s ‘Our Love To Admire’.
