The album was recorded at Electric Lady Studios and Atomic Sound in New York, the 10 tracks finding the band completely reinvigorated after a two-and-a-half year break from touring. All the songs were written and produced by Interpol, with Daniel Kessler playing guitar and piano, Samuel Fogarino on drums, Paul Banks on vocals, guitars and taking over bass duties for the first time. The album also features Brandon Curtis [The Secret Machines] playing keyboards on nine songs, Roger Joseph Manning Jr. [Beck] playing keyboards on "Tidal Wave"; and Rob Moose [Bon Iver] playing violin and viola on "Twice as Hard." El Pintor was mixed by Alan Moulder and mastered by Greg Calbi.
Interpol premiered songs from the album in March while headlining the NME Awards tour in the U.K. The Guardian praised their set at London's Brixton Academy as "lean and powerful."
Interpol played to a massive crowd at Glastonbury, which Gigwise hailed as a “relentlessly brilliant set” with new songs that “proved that [they] are in the finest form of their career.” They’ll be on tour in Europe for the rest of July before returning for headlining slots at Lollapalooza (August 1), FYF Fest (August 23) and Austin City Limits (October 3 and 10). The band will tour extensively this fall as well, with more dates to be announced soon.
