Track Of The Day: Interpol - 'All The Rage Back Home'

Interpol's new track 'All The Rage Back Home' has struck me harder and more instantly than anything I've ever heard from them before. Can anyone else hear a hint of Britpop in this, a bit of Suede perhaps?

This intense burst of post-punk is the first studio taste of their new album 'El Pintor', which will be released on September 8. The album was produced by the band themselves and is the first to feature singer Paul Banks on bass following the departure of founding bassist Carlos Dengler shortly after the release of their self-titled previous album in 2010. 'All The Rage Back Home' is one of three new songs which have been previously aired live, and I can remember hearing some rather encouraging new material when I saw the group play the NME Awards Tour earlier this year. Following on from a Glastonbury set a few weeks ago, Interpol have just finished a tour of Europe, and will be embarking on a seven-date US tour today (July 30).

  1. Awesome! Really looking forward to this album...I was disappointed with their last one but they're one of the last great new bands that I've really gotten into, all the way from the beginning, and this new one is shaping up to be a return to form!
