As mentioned, Interpol will release their new album, El Pintor, on September 9 via their longtime home of Matador. (Pre-orders in a variety of packages are available.) The band has just shared the first track from the album, "All the Rage Back Home." While still featuring that driving rhythm section the band are known for, there's an almost sunny, major key feel to it. The video for the song was co-directed by frontman Paul Banks and Sophia Peer and you can watch it in this post.

Interpol played Governors Ball last month and have a few other festival dates coming up, the next being Lollapalooza in Chicago. All dates are listed, along with the new video, below...

The dust has settled at Governors Ball where a whole bunch of artists performed over three days at Randall's Island. (Have you seen our pics?) Among those on the scene was media consultant Janessa Slater (a dead ringer for SNL's Vanessa Bayer) who interviews the likes of Interpol, Tanlines, Frank Turner, and others...as well as random Governors Ball attendees. It's vaguely Ali G and, though most bands seem in on the joke, she definitely gets in some good digs. Watch it over two parts below.

In related news, if you were at Governors Ball and lost anything (like maybe your keys or sunglasses), there's a Lost & Found posted to GovBall's Facebook that you can check.

2014 Governors Ball - Day 3
Governors Ball 2014
Governors Ball 2014

"New York cares." That's what the audience sang with Interpol's Paul Banks during the city indie anthem "NYC" as Governors Ball 2014 neared its close on Sunday. Throughout the weekend some of the city's finest bands had made a return to festival stages, secured headliner statuses and played the most memorable sets of the fest for home crowds. For Interpol, it has just announced a new album, played two excellent new tracks and Sunday's show at Governors Ball was the band's "First home show for us in a long time." A set heavy on the classics, Interpol played through "Obstacle 1," "Slow Hands," "Narc," "Evil" and "Stella Was a Driver and She Was Always Down." [Reverb]
The 2014 Governors Ball music festival wrapped up yesterday (6/8) after two other days of music on NYC's Randall's Island. The third and final day had sets from Vampire Weekend, Interpol (who along with The Strokes and Jack White's set featuring White Stripes songs, brought us back over a decade), James Blake, The Kills, J. Cole, The Head and the Heart, Tyler the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt and more. Luckily, with today's rain and Thursday's, the weather held out for GovBall all weekend (unlike last year). Pictures of day 3 are in this post.

Day 1 HERE. Day 2 HERE. More of day 3 below...

Interpol

Interpol recently began playing their first shows in three years and now they've announced their first album in four years, El Pintor. It follows 2010's self titled LP, is their fifth album overall, and is due out September 9 via Matador:

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.
Check out the tracklist, album artwork, and a video with in-studio footage, below.

As you guys know, Benjamin has been going through numerous chemo and radiation treatments since January. I'm so happy to say that they have found a bone marrow match for him, and he will be going into the hospital to begin the the transplant process in mid August. Thank you beautiful friends for all of your awesome messages and support. We appreciate it more than we could ever express in one lifetime. I hope to see you on the 22nd. So much love and gratitude, Alley
As you may know, School of Seven Bells' Benjamin Curtis was diagnosed with T-Cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma earlier this year. The good news is, as mentioned above, they've found a bone marrow match. Many of his friends have come to his aid for a benefit show at The Bowery Terrace at the Bowery Hotel on August 22. Interpol's Paul Banks and the Strokes' Albert Hammond Jr. will perform live, and there will be DJ sets from DJ MomJeans (aka actor Danny Masterson), Alexa Chung, and Fabrizio Moretti with Devendra Banhart. Tickets come at three different levels: $40 general admission; $60 general admission + a vinyl copy of the SVIIB Put Your Sad Down EP (pressed specially for this benefit); and $100 that comes with vinyl and a limited-edition t-shirt.

During the event, there will be a silent auction with items donated by The Black Keys, The Strokes, Yeah Yeah Yeah's, Regina Spektor, Vampire Weekend, The Hives, David Cross, Aziz Ansari, Adam Green, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Polyphonic Spree, Zachary Quinto, Saturday Night Live, The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and more. 100% of the money raised will go directly to Benjamin's fund (which you can donate to directly).

EmptyMansions

A while back we told you about EmptyMansions, the solo project from Interpol drummer Sam Fogarino, whose debut album is out April 2. You can stream "Lyra" from the album below and pre-order the album here.

While a tour hasn't been announced yet, EmptyMansions (which also features Duane Denison of Jesus Lizard/Tomahawk and Secret Machines' Brandon Curtis) have scheduled a couple NYC shows: Knitting Factory on April 26 and Mercury Lounge on April 27 (tickets). Tickets to Mercury Lounge are currently on AmEx presale with a regular on-sale on Friday (2/15) at noon; Tickets for Knitting Factory are on sale Friday at noon.

A list of all known EmptyMansions dates, April 4th at DC9 included (which we're presenting as part of a series of shows BV is presenting in DC), and the song stream are below...

Lest you think all Interpol's Paul Banks does all day is sit around listening to Joy Division, Scott Walker and The Chameleons while wearing fine suits, he does have other interests. Man is a hip hop fan too, apparently, and has made a mixt tape you can stream or download featuring "some of my friends, including Talib Kweli, El-P Mike G, and Hprizm/High Priest." No he doesn't rap, but his voice can be heard (the "demo excerpts") amongst the beats and movie samples.

The mix is called "Everybody On My Dick Like They Supposed To" and that's the cover art above and you can stream it below....

Paul Banks isn't the only Interpol member with a solo itch to scratch. Drummer Sam Fogarino has announced his solo project EmptyMansions and will release his debut, snakes/vultures/sulfate, in April. Says Sam of the album:

Some things can take decades to arrive at. In this case I'm speaking of songwriting---Even within the simplicity of a typical rock band configuration: guitar, bass, and drums. Not highly original or too complicated---Nonetheless, what this "thing" can be is highly illusive, hard to grasp, and even harder to wrangle into a worthy song. This might be why, we as fans and musicians alike, return to such a common voicing repeatedly---New or old, it's familiar, it's comfortable, and at times, it's the only fucking thing that feels right. In November 2011, at the completion of a fifteen month long tour supporting Interpol's fourth, self titled effort, I found that I had finally arrived at EmptyMansions. A long time coming; not without effort, but rather without force---This alone took years to figure out. The songs that I had written, I not only liked, but had to sing myself. There was no choice in the matter. To do it any other way would have rendered the whole endeavor dishonest and pointless.
Helping Sam make the album were Duane Denison (of Jesus Lizard and Tomahawk) and Secret Machines' Brandon Curtis (who played keyboards in Interpol on their last tour). You can stream "Lyra" from the album below. Cover art and tracklisting are below as well.

Paul Banks at Webster Hall - 12/14/12
Paul Banks

Interpol frontman Paul Banks played a hometown show at Webster Hall on Friday (12/14), after rescheduling the date, which would have been part of his now-concluded North American tour. Ex Cops were the support for the evening. Paul split the set pretty well between material off of his new album, Banks, and material from back when he was still calling himself Julian Plenti.

Both Paul and Ex Cops gave us lists of their favorite things of 2012, and Ex Cops also turned in a nice cover of Paul McCartney's "Wonderful Christmas Time." More pics and the setlist from the show are below...

Paul Banks @ CMJ Union, 10/17/2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Paul Banks

As we just mentioned, Interpol front man Paul Banks is playing tonight (12/14) at Webster Hall (rescheduled from a month ago) in support of his second solo album (and first under his own name), Banks. Ex Cops will open the show and tickets are still available. If you're like to go for free, we're giving away a pair of tickets and details on how to enter are below. And for another chance to win, visit our Facebook.

Paul recently talked with SPIN about the new album:

Your own vocals on the album have a much more relaxed, settled quality than they've had in the past with Interpol.
I heard that from the label, too. I was like, "Huh." I certainly did not think in particular that I did anything different. When there's an urgent monotony to some of my other vocal performances, that's because I was trying to communicate urgent monotony. Maybe in this new music with where I'm going in age, the insistence is not the key ingredient anymore.

It's been ten years since Interpol's first album came out. Looking back, how do you feel about it as your introduction to the public?
I don't really listen to Turn on the Bright Lights, but I'm super proud of it. The major facet about Interpol always is that these other guys in the band are amazing. I love what we do as a band. I'm really only critical of my vocals.

Why?
I was a totally untrained singer and I didn't know what I was doing. It's dumb to wish I could go back and change things because I can't. People liked it. It just is what it is.

The 10th Anniversary edition of Turn on the Bright Lights came out this month, complete with 17 bonus tracks that include demos, Peel sessions and b-sides. It's available on double vinyl or CD with a bonus DVD. It's a pretty nice set.

Meanwhile Paul Banks gave us a list of his "Top Ten things in 2012," which is a mix of music, movies, places and other things. "I can't think of ten examples in any one category," he told us. You can check it out below, along with details on the Turn on the Bright Lights reissue..

Paul Banks at CMJ Union, 10/17/2012
Paul Banks

Hello to all,

Regrettably, we are going to postpone the Nov 13th Webster Hall show.

The show will be rescheduled for December 14th.

Tickets that have already been purchased are of course valid, or refundable..

Needless to say, we were VERY excited about rocking out for our hometown crowd. But it will just have to wait.

Basically, Sandy managed to disrupt the preparations that are necessary to put on a good concert.

Again, I apologize for any inconvenience this causes any of you.

But I hope to see you ALL in December. You bring your cherubic faces, and I will bring the rock.

Best,
Paul Banks

Paul pretty much said it all there himself but tickets to the new 12/14 Paul Banks date at Webster Hall are on sale now. You can stream the Interpol frontman's new solo album, Banks, in its entirety via YouTube below along with an updated list of tour dates and some belated pics of Paul from CMJ.

We already posted lots of posts today. Here's some more, and some reminders too...

With the opening of the Barclays Center (follow @BrooklynVegan on Twitter for some scenes from the chaos), both New York and Time Out ponder the changing landscape of Brooklyn in this week's issues.

Speaking of the new venue, Lady Gaga's MSG (2/22) & Barclays Center (3/6) shows sold out today, so she added one more at each venue. The new dates are 2/23 @ MSG and 3/7 @ Barclays. Both go on sale Friday, October 5th at 10am.

Other NYC shows that went on sale today include JEFF the Brotherhood, Field Report, Diamond Rings, Anais Mitchell, Kelly Hogan, Callers and Petty Fest.

And regarding that Staten Island politician talking shit about her, Lady Gaga thanked him.

As mentioned, Soundgarden is releasing a new album, their first in 15 years, on 11/13. Now you can hear the first song which is streaming at the bottom of this post.

In other bands who were good in the '90s Barclays Center news and, Smashing Pumpkins warmed up for their arena tour with an intimate, two-and-a-half-hour show at Stubb's in Austin last night. The tour hits the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Halloween.

Listen to the title track from Bad Brains' forthcoming new album.

Apple knows its maps app sucks.

Trevor Dunn, who is currently on tour as a member of Melvins Lite, took to his tour diary to comment on Green Day frontman BIlie Joe Armstrong's recent freakout: "That guy's main problem is that he doesn't realize that he is Justin Bieber."

Do you love the blown-out, pixelated artork on MIA albums? You may want to buy here coffee table book then.

On a somewhat similar publishing tip, Diplo "and photographer Shane McCauley are launching the zine series Blow Your Head. Each volume will explore a different country and musical genre.

Tour diaries are hot these days. (Have you read ours with Kelly Pratt whose touring with David Byrne and St. Vincent)? Diamond Rings and Stars writing about their adventures on the road for The Huffington Post. Those adventures included a show at Webster Hall this week.

Winter is coming for everyone, it seems. Neko Case tweeted today: "Dude. I'm just gonna admit to being balls-deep in Game of Thrones on CD."

While on the subject of rock star confessions, a recent quote from Pete Townshend: "What I remember of the size of Mick Jagger's penis - I remember it as being huge and extremely tasty."

If you need more, maybe you'd like to read some Phil Collins erotic fan fiction?

Speaking of St. Vincent, today is Annie Clark's 30th birthday. Happy Birthday, Annie! We always liked this picture of her, by Chris La Putt, from her days as a member of the Polyphonic Spree:

ST VINCENT

Catch St Vincent and David Byrne in Williamsburg Park on Saturday. How was their second Beacon show? Check out pictures from the first (also by Chris La Putt).

It's also Les Claypool of Primus' birthday, who turn 49. Catch Primus on tour this fall.

Not that surprising, but awesome -Austin just became the first Texas city to endorse marriage equality.

Austin music venue Scoot Inn, a popular place to be during SXSW, has a new owner.

Kreayshawn's new album flopped.

Mumford & Sons' new album probably won't.
