Today, Interpol released its first studio track from their upcoming album El Pintor. The song, titled “All The Rage Back Home” was released along with a music video that was directed by Interpol lead singer Paul Banks and Sophia Peer (an immediate download of the song is available if you pre-order El Pintor on iTunes).
In the very simplistic music video which is shot in black and white (Interpol called it a 'video component'), the footage cuts between the band performing the song (in a very similar lighting manner to The Police's iconic music video for "Every Breath You Take") and images of surfers riding massive waves, shot in a style that would make Herb Ritts proud.
With previous live teases of new material and recent appearances at both Glastonbury Festival and Governors Ball in New York City, it seems Interpol is returning to form on El Pintor (which is Spanish for The Painter and also an anagram of the band's name), which will be released to the public on September 9th.
Interpol will continue to tour in Europe and Australia before returning to the States for appearances at this year's Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago, followed by tour stops including the Austin City Limits Festival in Austin, the FYF Fest in Los Angeles and a performance at The Pool at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
