A month after unleashing the first single off their upcoming sixth studio album, Interpol have come through with another new track. On Monday (July 30), the New York-founded band unleashed the second single from Marauder; a song titled “Number 10.” Listen to the new tune above which also happens to be the tenth track on the impending release.
“Number 10” will join lead single “The Rover” on Marauder. Marauder —the follow-up to 2014’s El Pintor— is due out Aug. 24 through Matador Records. Pre-orders for the forthcoming album are currently available on Interpol’s website here.
In a recently released press statement, frontman Paul Banks describes what was the inspiration behind the new record.
“Marauder is a facet of myself. That’s the guy that fucks up friendships and does crazy shit. He taught me a lot, but it’s representative of a persona that’s best left in song. In a way, this album is like giving him a name and putting him to bed.”
Banks continues: “This record is where I feel touching on real things that have happened to me are exciting and evocative to write about…. I think in the past, I always felt autobiography was too small a thing for me to reference. I feel like now, I’m able to romanticize parts of my own life.”
In support of the album’s release, the group previously announced plans to hit the road throughout the final months of 2018 with one major show scheduled for early 2019. The tour will officially kick off on Aug. 13 with a two-night engagement at the Teatro de la Ciudad in Mexico City. The world tour will then conclude a little over three months later on Nov. 29 at La Salle Pleyel in Paris. After a few months off, the group will headline Madison Square Garden on Feb. 16, 2019.
