A pochi giorni dal ritorno della band newyorkese con un nuovo brano (QUI) arriva inaspettata la notizia della dipartita del bassista Carlos Dengler. Il comunicato arriva tramite il sito della band dove si parla di separazione amichevole con il resto del gruppo e di una scelta diversa del percorso musicale.
Il bassista comunque ha terminato di registrare le sue parti di basso sul nuovo album ma non partirà in tour, a supporto degli U2, previsto per questa estate.
Di seguito c’è il comunicato integrale:
As some of you have surely heard, Interpol has completed it’s new album.
It was recorded at Electric Lady Studios, New York, and mixed with Alan Moulder at Assault and Battery, London. The four of us poured our collective heart into this music and we are very proud and excited to share it. It’s a heavy record. But we’re feeling limber; and we’re going to carry it all around the world for you. Touring begins this summer, so check here soon for announcements and show dates. There is more:
Sadly, Carlos will not be joining us.
After the completion of the album, Carlos informed the rest of us that he would be leaving the band. He has decided to follow another path, and to pursue new goals. This separation is amicable, and we whole-heartedly wish him great happiness and success. We will remain, as always, deeply respectful fans of this blazingly talented individual.
We can tell you that we have some very exciting new recruits joining us on the road. So stay tuned – we will promptly be revealing the identities of these illustrious players.
We eagerly await the opportunity to reconvene with you all
– the greatest fans known to Rock.
