Interpol has revealed details of their sixth studio album, Marauder, due out on Aug. 24 via Matador Records. Marauder, the band’s latest album since 2014’s El Pintor, marks the first time since 2007 that Interpol has worked with a producer. Producer Dave Fridmann, famed for recording with Mercury Rev, Flaming Lips, MGMT, Spoon, and Mogwai, was recruited to work on the 13-track album that is being introduced with single, “The Rover.”
The band announced the details this morning (June 7) at a live streamed press conference from General Prim 30 in Mexico City. A recorded version of the press conference can be seen here.
The single, “The Rover,” can be heard below. The song will make its television debut on June 8 with a live performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
The band has also announced an initial run of tour dates in support of the album in addition to previously announced appearances at NYC’s House of Vans, Chicago’s Riot Fest and London’s Hyde Park with The Cure. Fans that pre-order Marauder directly from the Interpol store will get first access to ticket pre-sales for the new shows, which include Madison Square Garden in New York, Hollywood Bowl in California, and Royal Albert Hall in England.
The tour dates kick off on June 25 at Arena Wien Open Air in Wien, Austria and works its way through Denmark, Japan, and The United States. Support acts for some shows are still to be determined, but The Kills, Sunflower Bean, Car Seat Headrest, and Snail Mail will make appearances throughout the tour with Interpol.
