-- Interpol's fifth album and follow-up to their 2010 self-titled effort is still a ways off, but frontman Paul Banks says that the trio recently got back together in the studio "to jam" and he is "really excited" about the potential new material, which he dubs "excellent."
Interpol frontman Paul Banks has mapped out a lengthy tour in support of his forthcoming solo album, which drops Oct. 23 and is titled simply 'Banks.' The singer-guitarist kicks off the month-long U.S. leg of his trek on Nov. 3 at the Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas, and then returns to the road next year for a European leg that begins Jan. 20 in Dublin, Ireland.
Interpol fans may have spent many a recent commercial break wondering "How are things on the West Coast?" thanks to that AT&T 4G commercial that's always playing, but now they can start thinking about new tunes, as Paul Banks revealed plans for a new solo album in 2012. The Interpol frontman has announced an Oct. 23 release date for the disc, which is simply titled 'Banks.'
The gentlemen of Interpol aren't usually known for their happy-go-lucky songs, instead embracing more of the brooding hipsters look. Lead singer Paul Banks has decided to do things a little differently with his new EP, 'Julian Plenti Lives...,' and is offering a free download of the first single 'Summertime Is Coming.'
As 2012's road trip season begins, AT&T has released a new commercial that cleverly advertises the company's 4G network coverage. In a 30-second spot, AT&T drives a couple from the West Coast all the way home to Brooklyn, N.Y. with the help of music from Interpol, John Denver, George Strait, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Ace Frehley.
