Interpol return to studio to start work on new album?

Get ready for album No.6 from the NYC trio

It looks like Interpol have started work on their new album, after sharing a photo from the band seemingly back in rehearsals.

Their next record will be the NYC trio’s sixth, and the follow-up to 2014’s ‘El Pintor’. Frontman Paul Banks is soon to return to the UK to tour his collaborative album with Wu Tang’s RZA ‘Anything But Words’ by Banks & Steelz, but it looks like the band are back together and looking to the future.

Taking to the band’s Twitter account, guitarist Dan Kessler shared a photo of drummer Sam Fogarino’s bass drum pierced by the beater, with the caption: “Pretty good rehearsal today. Sam crushed it.”

NME has contacted Interpol’s representatives for a response.

Meanwhile, former bassist Carlos D recently made headlines when he opened up about the truth behind him leaving the band.

Dengler parted ways with the NYC band after the completion but before the release of their self-titled fourth album in 2010, before pursuing a career as an actor.

He’d said feeling ‘bored while watching Coldplay‘ was when he had his realisation to leave the group, but now has given a lengthy, hour-long discussion about his final years with the band and his life since.

“I was experiencing so much pain being in the band, being in the music industry,” he told Talk Music Talk. “I have to admit that I couldn’t help but to feel that the band was constraining a creative impulse. It wasn’t for lack of actually trying to make it work; it was still three tortuous years of trying to… I got sober and I said, ‘Okay, enough of this fucking rock star shit. Who am I really?’”

Banks and Steelz will perform at Koko in London on Friday 18 November.
