Interpol Release Free EP, Goes On Tour, Loses Dave Pajo in the Midst


Things are looking up and down for Interpol. Should we start with the bad news first? Dave Pajo who recently replaced the infamous Carlos D. last year, has just stated that he is out of the band. Pajo explained in a press release that “I’ll be taking a break from touring to focus on family. There are no personal, artistic or health reasons– it’s really as simple as that!” Though the statement on his Facebook the next day makes us think that he has something else in store for the music world as it reads “Thank you, friends, for all your kind words of support and well-wishes!!! Exciting news ahead, stay posted.” Currently Brad Truax from Soliders of Fortune who just put out a release on Mexican Summer (the same label that houses Best Coast) will be taking over bass duties for the band.

In happier news for the band, in the midst of an international tour, they have just put out a North American TourEP which also features the openers on the dates, School of Seven Bells and Matthew Dear. You can download the goodies right HERE.
