As written about previously, Interpol frontman Paul Banks, who has (as recently as this past June) released solo material as Julian Plenti, will put out his first album, simply titled Banks, under his own name on October 23 via Matador.

He's already got a European tour announced and is now beginning to reveal North American dates surrounding his appearance at Fun Fun Fun Fest. One of those dates happens in NYC on November 13 at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (9/14) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (9/12) at noon.
