Pre-order "The Other Side of Make-Believe"



“‘Fables’ features one of Daniel’s hottest licks,” comments Paul. “A breezy vocal with optimistic lyrics and a bouncy drum beat evocative of classic R&B with a nod to the golden age of hip hop. It’s a summer jam and a piece of music we are particularly proud of.”

The new track follows the band’s well-received first two singles, ‘Toni’ and ‘Something Changed’- which were accompanied by a stellar two-part film directed by Van Alpert.

Interpol - "Something Changed"



"Something Changed"

Last week, Interpol premiered “Toni”, the first single from their new album ‘The Other Side Of Make-Believe’, released July 15th on Matador. The song was accompanied by the opening instalment of a two-part film directed by Van Alpert.

Today, Interpol release the second and concluding part, as well as unveil new song "Something Changed".Singer Paul Banks says: “In ‘Something Changed,’ part two of our short film with Van Alpert, reality and reverie converge and our two lead characters find themselves in a kind of dream state - being pursued inexorably by an ominous figure (played by myself.) The lives of the three are intertwined in a nebula of fear, retribution, desire, and defiance. Who will receive their just deserts? Stay tuned and find out.”

Director Van Alpert: “Paul and I like the idea that 'Something Changed' would be like a dream. It’s as if our two main characters wake up from what happened in ‘Toni’ and their lives are irreparably different. They are now on the run from some dark force that is a bit more primal and encroaching.”

Coming July 15 : Interpol - 'The Other Side of Make-Believe'

"Toni" - directed by Van Alpert

stream / download 'Toni'

“Still in shape, my methods refined,” sings Paul Banks on "Toni", the opening track and lead single from Interpol’s 7th LP 'The Other Side of Make-Believe'. The album breaks fresh ground for the group: parallel to exploring the sinister undercurrents of contemporary life, Interpol’s new songs are imbued with pastoral longing and newfound grace. Daniel Kessler's serpentine guitar arrangements crest skywards, Samuel Fogarino shatters his percussive precision into strange metres, while Paul Banks’ sonorous voice exudes a vulnerability that is likely to catch most long-term fans of the band off guard. After all, says Banks, “there’s always a seventh time for a first impression.”

'The Other Side of Make-Believe' began remotely across 2020. In early 2021, Interpol reconvened to flesh out new material at a rented home in the Catskills, before completing it later that year in North London, working for the first time with production veteran Flood (Mark Ellis), as well as teaming up again with former co-producer Alan Moulder.

If fate didn’t quite ordain the circumstances for Interpol’s seventh album, it was at least fortunate that the band had happily concluded their Marauder cycle on stage in front of 30 thousand-odd Peruvian fans. Rather than be sent scrambling like so many other musicians, when the first lockdown clamped Interpol had no new release to promote and no tour to rearrange. They quickly got into a productive mood.

Writing on their own in those geographically-dispersed early stages gave the members a way out of their respective heads: “We really extracted the honey out of this situation”, says Fogarino. Kessler echoes the sentiment: “Working alone was raw at first, but has opened up a vivid new chapter for us.” In the Interpol Venn Diagram, each member found a way of expanding their individual circle in perfect harmony.

As Banks was grounded in Edinburgh for close to nine months, he got cosy in a window-side chair with a pen, pad and atypically cream-coloured bass guitar. “We usually write live, but for the first time I’m not shouting over a drumkit,” he says. “Daniel and I have a strong enough chemistry that I could picture how my voice would complement the scratch demos he emailed over. Then I could turn the guys down on my laptop, locate these colourful melodies and generally get the message across in an understated fashion.” Banks adjusting his personal volume dimmer to a hush chimes with a period of global disquiet and the yearn for reconnection:  "Flood told me the vocals on the demos evoked Mickey Rourke in "Barfly", singing to a patron at the end of the tabletop, and we never felt the need to flip that smoky intimacy into something big and loud when it came to rehearse and record. I got a real kick out of doing the opposite.”

Coming from a group whose early material was characterised by Polish knife-wielders and incarcerated serial killers, you might expect Interpol’s take on the present day to be an emotional tar pit — perhaps doubly so, given the towering credentials of Flood and Moulder’s history with Nine Inch Nails, Curve, Gary Numan, Depeche Mode and more.

Yet Banks felt the call to push in a “counterbalancing” direction, with paeans to mental resilience and the quiet power of going easy. “The nobility of the human spirit is to rebound,” he says. “Yeah, I could focus on how fucked everything is, but I feel now is the time when being hopeful is necessary, and a still-believable emotion within what makes Interpol Interpol.” Kessler concurs: “The process of writing this record and searching for tender, resonant emotions took me back to teenage years; it was transformative, almost euphoric. I felt a rare sensation of purpose biting on the end of my fishing rod and I was compelled to reel it in.”

Even with spare piano caressing the intro of "Something Changed", open-hearted cyclical chord progressions on "Passenger", or anthemic waves of Kessler’s cresting guitar on "Big Shot City", it doesn’t mean Interpol are entirely stopping to smell the roses, though. 'The Other Side of Make-Believe'’s title, cover and a frequent lyrical lean toward fables, smokescreens and the mutability of truth reflect Banks’ disgust with the curdling of the information age. “I feel like the slipperiness of reality, and being willing to get violent on the basis of a factual disagreement, has had a super strenuous effect on the psyche of everyone in the world. Although,” he laughs, “I was talking about it so often that it kind of spooked my bandmates, so I found a way to express my concerns more through the lens of human beings' non-rational faculties, and less civilizational collapse.”

On 'The Other Side of Make-Believe', a deep interpersonal understanding means each member respects the other’s respective strengths better than ever, letting Interpol’s elemental qualities shine through. Song by song, Kessler sketches the architectural blueprint (invariably while watching a film — locus of inspiration for almost every song in the band’s catalogue), Banks frames artwork on the wall, then Fogarino arranges the furniture to have a certain positioning and intent.

Fogarino highlights Flood’s part in this equation “was to hyperbolise all of our good qualities. Our band has never exploited rock ‘n roll tropes, no big drum fills or wailing solos, so he located the core honesty in our sound and found a way to widen it. There’s a phrase I love about drumming: ‘the rhythm hates the melody’ — the best kind of drumming either totally accentuates what’s being conveyed, or ploughs through it.” So what does the splashy, dramatic beat on songs like "Renegade Hearts" and "Gran Hotel" imply? The answer comes back with a grin: “I guess Flood gave me room to plough.”

The band found themselves struck by the producer’s egoless way of operating and the breeziness of recording in his North London studio. They also seem charged by how much Flood and Moulder complimented, rather than challenged, their kinetic energy when performing. “I wouldn’t change a thing,” Kessler states. And though he means Flood and Moulder’s contributions, that sentiment extends to Interpol’s work as a whole.

'The Other Side of Make-Believe' will soon feel as familiar in the public consciousness as it is to Paul Banks, Daniel Kessler and Sam Fogarino. Ever the paradox, the noirish trio have weathered nearly seven albums’ and several line-ups’ worth of rollercoasters far better than anyone might have predicted, never letting their sense of purpose escape. Over time, tags like ‘alternative’ and ‘indie’ have even faded from view. They are simply a rock group nowadays; one of the most distinctive, consequential and enduring rock groups of the 21st century so far. And a quarter-century into their lifespan, the band are all fired up again.

Interpol: their methods refined, still in terrific shape.

Matador Revisionist History: Interpol's "Antics"

‘Antics’, the 2nd studio album from Interpol was certified gold in 3 countries (BIG ONES) and received some of the highest accolades of the band’s career, including Drowned In Sound’s Top Album Of 2004 Award (NOTE - MALCOLM, CAN YOU FIND A PHOTO OF THE HUGE PLACQUE SOMEWHERE IN THE ARCHIVES?) . Perhaps you’ve heard the cliche, “no one ever remembers what Drowned In Sound’s #2 album of the year is,” but the Matador Revisionist History Campaign is no place for that sort of gloating or negativity.   Featuring several of Interpol’s most beloved songs including “Slow Hands”, “C’mere”, “Evil” and “Narc”, we concluded our 9/27/04 sales pitch for this classic with the words, “with Interpol, things are rarely what they seem.”  That made even less sense in context.

- Gerard Cosloy



Interpol's sophomore album, Antics, celebrates 15 years this week. Announced last month, a very limited supply of the white vinyl anniversary edition remains at record stores worldwide and on the UK and EU territories of the Matador Webstore. Save 25% on the standard LP/CD editions of Antics through next Thursday, October 3rd.

Out Today : INTERPOL - 'A Fine Mess'




(photo credit : Kalpesh Lathigra)

Interpol today release a new 5 song EP, 'A Fine Mess', including the sought-after live favorite “Real Life,” first heard during the band’s 'Turn On The Bright Lights' 15th anniversary tour in 2017.  Recorded during time spent in upstate New York with Dave Fridmann, the five songs that make up 'A Fine Mess' gradually emerged as a body of work with a narrative and flow unto itself. The title track, “Fine Mess,” then received further production from Kaines & Tom A.D. and mixing from Claudius Mittendorfer, who had first worked with Interpol as engineer on 'Our Love To Admire'. The resulting set is a living, breathing postcard from the band to their fans as they tour the world throughout 2019, and a linear continuation of the visceral and contagious energy set loose with 'Marauder'.

Echoing its title, the artwork for 'A Fine Mess' is illustrated by a series of lost images, recovered from an abandoned police station in Detroit, MI. In a crumbling evidence room - amongst the rubble - an undeveloped roll of film, dated “1-20-96”, featured latent images of a breaking and entering scene, the rooms in chaos.

From the beguiling refrain of the title track, to the soulful topsy-turvy of “No Big Deal,” cathartic chorus of long sought-after live favourite “Real Life,” anthemic swell of “The Weekend,” and angular shades of “Thrones,” 'A Fine Mess' is a bracing and distinct entry in Interpol’s oeuvre.

Interpol today announce a new EP, 'A Fine Mess', which will be released May 17th. The new track “The Weekend,” is available to stream and purchase today.

Recorded during time spent in upstate New York with Dave Fridmann, the five songs that make up 'A Fine Mess' gradually emerged as a body of work with a narrative and flow unto itself. The previously released title track, “Fine Mess,” then received further production from Kaines & Tom A.D. and mixing from Claudius Mittendorfer, who had first worked with Interpol as engineer on 'Our Love To Admire'.

Interpol - "Fine Mess"




photo : Kalpesh Lathigra

Interpol have commenced 2019 with new single titled “Fine Mess,” which is now available to stream and purchase.

“Fine Mess” continues the invigorated creative spirit of 2018’s triumphant 'Marauder', presenting Interpol at their most urgent and essential – with Paul Banks’ feverish vocals and haunted lyrics telling of “a sanguine and starry pair, buoyed and dashed alike by their own dreams and appetites” interlocking with Daniel Kessler’s serpentine riffs and Sam Fogarino’s thundering rhythm section, distilled around the seditious refrain: “you and me / make a fine mess.”

Ahead of a busy worldwide tour and festival season with Primavera, NOS Primavera, and Best Kept Secret already announced, “Fine Mess” is further testament to a band at their peak, and the first chapter in what promises to be yet another eventful year for Interpol.

Great Music For Terrible Times : 25% Off Holiday Sale


Dear Citizens of Earth,

As we reach the end of 2018, it would not be an exaggeration to say we’re in the midst of many difficult moments in human history.  The icecaps are melting.   America is on the brink of a constitutional crisis.  You can’t walk 15 feet in any major metropolis without breaking your neck on a discarded scooter.  Your personal data (including everything we collect in this campaign) is being used for nefarious means. Nearly 15% of the public believes we actually told someone to “sound more like Adele.”  Nearly $40 million was spent to produce “The Hurricane Heist”

All of that said, there is still beauty, mystery, and grandeur in what’s left of the fine arts.  And when you’re done with the fine arts, there’s Matador's incredible array of 2018 titles from Belle and Sebastian, Body/Head, boygenius, Car Seat Headrest, Lucy Dacus, Iceage, Interpol, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Liz Phair, Snail Mail, Kurt Vile and Yo La Tengo.  Will these records help you sort out a world gone mad? hey, they’re great, but not THAT GREAT.  Almost certainly, and that’s why your friends at Matador —a label as magnanimous as it is humble — are offering an unprecedented 25% OFF when you use the code, “terribletimes” thru December 13. Orders of $40.00 and above receive a free tote bag and take it from me, a tote bag skeptic, you’re way less likely to drop shit all over the sidewalk when you have a stylish bag.
