Interpol Reveals Details of a New Album, Acknowledges What Was Lacking in Our Love to Admire

Could it be? Interpol are back? Apparently so, according to drummer Sam Fogarino. After futzing around with various solo projects (*cough*JulianPlenti*cough*) and short films (bassist Carlos D's thing), the members of Interpol are back with plans for a follow-up record to 2007's Our Love to Admire (TMT Review). Interpol reportedly spent last spring in NYC's Electric Lady Studio, where they put together what Fogarino dubs a return to their earlier release Turn on the Bright Lights and a step away from the their last LP, which you may recall took in its share of mixed reviews.

In an interview with Paste, Fogarino says "The new record falls back towards the first. In trying to move forward, there was an unspoken realization that you can't let go of your sonic-defining tag. There was an effort in Daniel [Kessler]'s guitar tone; he rediscovered it playing in his loft space for a year without anybody. The quality of that tone, played in a big room, is just beautiful. It creates an atmosphere ... That big wash of reverb? It's back."

Well, color me intrigued! The as-yet unnamed album will arrive via Capitol Records early next year.
