Interpol's Second Act: Inside the Gloom Kings' Return

New interview at Rolling Stone. Some highlights:

"No one was blindsided when Carlos left," says Banks. "Marriages end, you know? It's a miracle that we did more than two records."
Banks hasn't stayed in touch with Dengler, but he says there's no bad blood between them. Sam Fogarino, Interpol's longtime drummer, is less diplomatic. "Carlos had very narcissistic tendencies," Fogarino says over the phone a few days later. "It got to the point where he was dismissive of the notion of a rock band. All of a sudden, he had no respect for something that we still love. That's kind of hard to swallow."


Paul: "As the Lord above has ordained it, everyone is now upon my dick!"


Adds Banks, "It was like, 'Wow, fuck, there's new creative DNA here, and the molecule is sustaining.' We're new beasts now, and we're thriving."
This thought leads him off on a tangent about Splice, the 2009 sci-fi film starring Adrien Brody: "Ever seen that? Crazy movie, man – they make an alien, then he bangs it. Sorry – spoiler. But I would compare this album to that."
Kessler laughs and shakes his head. "If that doesn't sell," says the guitarist, "I don't know what will."
