Interpol man reveals details of new side project

Magnetic Morning to release debut EP this month

Interpol drummer Sam Fogarino has revealed the details of his new side project.

Magnetic Morning is a collaboration between Fogarino and singer/guitarist Adam Franklin of Swervedriver and Toshack Highway.

The duo will release their debut self-titled EP in the US on April 19. They recorded the five-song EP at Electric Lady studios in New York.

Fogarino and Franklin formed the partnership after being introduced by a mutual friend in 2006 and discovering they shared a lot in common musically.

The project was originally called Setting Suns, but the band changed the name due to “an already existing entity with a name too close for comfort.”

Fogarino is set to play a DJ set at Other Music in New York on April 19 at 5:00pm EST to celebrate the album’s release.
