The ever elusive Interpol have broken their silence to give an update on the recording of their forthcoming fourth album. Word is the songs sound ‘vital,’ and the band looks forward to unleashing it upon the masses to let it ‘swagger and breathe.’

kidding aside, there are few bands I follow with an almost obsessive fervor. Interpol is one of those bands. Never the most prolific band, any sign of new material leaves me terribly excited. I remember the lead up to Antics, scouring the web for any trace of the new stuff, eventually seeing them perform Evil, Slow Hands, and Narc at Curiosa. Direction, the oft-forgotten B-side contributed to a Six Feet Under compilation disc, held me over between albums two and three. In the YouTube age, finding Our Love to Admire material was considerably easier, and hearing Pioneer to the Falls from a poor quality live recording didn’t prepare me for hearing the real thing in person.

As you can imagine, I am rather into Interpol, and through my powers of irrational speculation, I’m going to guess we’ll see a new album by fall of this year, as a similar cryptic message was delivered in the months preceding OLTA’s release. In the mean time, I’ll leave you with some of my favourites.

Interpol – Leif Erikson
Interpol – Public Pervert
Interpol – Rest My Chemistry

I’m really not sure why people embraced Antics and shunned OLTA, the poppier direction of Antics was far more jarring for me.

Any more word on Interpol? I hope your guess was right, for the fall is here!

It was more wishful thinking on my part. The Julian Plenti record hadn’t come up at this point. This fall’s tour will likely push things back further.

According to an interview with Sam the band was recording from January to July. I’d imagine that’s groundwork for a release in 2010.
