Interpol announced last month that their fifth studio album El Pintor, will be released on 9 September 2014. To get everyone in the mood, they’ve released the first single and a music video for “All The Rage Back Home” .
El Pintor is the first album since the departure of their bassist Carlos Dengler and sees frontman Paul Banks assume bass duties while a touring member picks up on keys.
The music video was co-directed by Paul Banks and Sophia Pee and follows the favorable black and white trend – think Coldplay’s “Magic“ and Franz Ferdinand’s “Fresh Strawberries“. For the most part it’s a performance video that pivots from the band performing in suits on a dark stage area to footage of surfers crashing some punishing waves. The track is distinctively Interpol and will please their long-time-fans who have been waiting four years for a new album. Check it out below.
