Interpol will release their first album in four years, 'El Pintor,' September 9th on Matador. Recorded at Electric Lady Studios and Atomic Sound in New York City, the ten tracks on ‘El Pintor,' - taut and epic in equal measure - find the band completely reinvigorated after a two and a half year break from touring. All songs on ‘El Pintor' were written and produced by Interpol, with Daniel Kessler playing guitar and piano, Samuel Fogarino on drums, and Paul Banks on vocals, guitars, and taking over bass duties for the first time. The album also features Brandon Curtis (The Secret Machines) playing keyboards on nine songs, Roger Joseph Manning, Jr. (Beck) playing keyboards on "Tidal Wave," and Rob Moose (Bon Iver) playing violin and viola on "Twice as Hard." ‘El Pintor' was mixed by Alan Moulder, and mastered by Greg Calbi.

Interpol premiered songs from ‘El Pintor' in March while headlining the NME Awards tour in the UK. The Guardian praised their set at London's Brixton Academy as "lean and powerful."

Interpol will tour all summer long, with festival performances at Governors Ball, Lollapalooza, FYF Fest, Austin City Limits Festival, Glastonbury, and Roskilde already confirmed. The band will tour extensively this fall with more dates to be announced soon.



Rey Pila

Born in Mexico City as Diego Solorzano's solo project, Rey Pila came to life with a self-titled debut album in 2009, co-produced by Diego and Paul Majahan (TV On the Radio, Liars, Yeah Yeah Yeahs). Diego put together a band and toured the album relentlessly for two years, performing with the likes of Interpol, Muse, TV On the Radio, Ariel Pink and headlining their own shows in Mexico and abroad, while garnering massive local press and radio support.

Rey Pila entered New York City's DFA studio in 2012 as a fully formed band, now comprised of Diego and long-time friends/collaborators Rodrigo Blanco and Andrés Velasco. Together they wrote the band's sophomore album, and enlisted producer Chris Coady (Beach House, Smith Westerns, Wavves) to record a synth-laden, guitar-driven collection of pop gems. A first single ("Alexander") will be released this fall on Julian Casablancas's Cult Records.
