On Interpol's first album in four years-and first without Carlos D-there’s nothing that touches the band’s creative peak, but it's still a step up from their 2010 self-titled record. El Pintor’s best songs could hang with Interpol’s strongest deep cuts. On Interpol's first album in four years-and first without Carlos D-there’s nothing that touches the band’s creative peak, but it's still a step up from their 2010 self-titled record. When Interpol went out on their first tour behind their 2002 album Turn on the Bright Lights, Guided by Voices’ Robert Pollard imparted some prophetic advice for drummer Sam Fogarino at an Ohio stop: Don’t sell more than 50,000 records or you’re in trouble.
Interpol's debut album Turn on the Bright Lights (2002) was critically acclaimed, making it to tenth position on the NME's list of top albums in 2002 and number one on Pitchfork Media's Top 50 Albums of 2002. Subsequent records Antics (2004) and Our Love to Admire (2007) brought greater critical and commercial success. The band released its fourth, self-titled album on September 7, 2010. They went on hiatus from 2011 through 2012 while they focused on other projects. Their fifth studio album El Pintor was released on September 9, 2014

El Pintor is Interpol's shortest album, and its music is the closest to the ideal form of the band's sound: Kessler's guitar swings between prodding, angular lines and dreamy washes; Fogarino provides crisp punctuation; and Banks' tative baritone gives more form to abstract lyrics such as "There is a slope like an appetite" (Banks also steps in for. Dengler, and does an able, if slightly less distinctive, job). Throughout the album, the trio, joined by Secret Machines' Brandon Curtis, delivers archetypal examples of many of its sounds.
Interpol's first album in four years is on its way. The veteran post-punk group announced on Thursday they'll release fifth studio effort "El Pintor" (The Painter) Sept. Currently a trio, Interpol wrote and produced the ten tracks on "El Pintor," which was recorded at Electric Lady Studios and Atomic Sound in their native New York City. Along with providing vocals and guitar, frontman Paul Banks plays bass on the album, with Samuel Fogarino on drums and Daniel Kesler on guitar and piano
