I gave the remastered version a few spins but as you say it sounds exactly the same. I can't hear anything out of the ordinary. Possibly if I listened to it through headphones, it might have some subtle nuances to it.

The demos are grand to listen to but I always find that I only play them once and that's it.

Still a great fuckin' record. "Antics" is better though...

INTERPOL WILL RELEASE ‘EL PINTOR’
THEIR FIRST ALBUM IN FOUR YEARS ON SEPTEMBER 5



INTERPOL

'El Pintor'

5 September 2014


Interpol will release their brand new, fifth studio album ‘El Pintor’ in Ireland on September 5 on Soft Limit through [PIAS] Co-Op. ‘El Pintor’ is the band’s first album in four years, and sees them completely reinvigorated after a three year break from touring, offering ten incredible new tracks - taut and epic in equal measure.

Recorded at Electric Lady Studios and Atomic Sound in New York City, all songs on ‘El Pintor’ were written and produced by Interpol, with Daniel Kessler playing guitar and piano, Samuel Fogarino on drums, and 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.

Described by NME editor Mike Williams as, “one of the most important bands to come out of New York ever”, Interpol recently premiered songs from ‘El Pintor’ for the first time as they headlined the NME Awards tour earlier this year.

The band will return to the UK this June to play The Other Stage at Glastonbury on June 27 and will also be playing a sold out fan show at London’s Electric Ballroom on June 25. International highlights include shows at Splendour In The Grass (Aus), Optimus Alive (Portugal), Lollapalooza, FYF and Governor's Ball (USA), Hurricane/Southside (Germany), and a headline set at the second ever ATP Iceland. No news of an Irish date yet!

Think they are in the Roundhouse. Nice venue but not the biggest. Imagine tickets would sell fast.

They did three sold out shows in Dublin on the "Interpol (4th Album)" tour.

Same fanbase really...

The mid-week gigs in Dublin are a dose though.

I burned through a whole year of holiday leave going to Dublin/UK for mid-week gigs a few years ago.

If only Cork had an event centre capable of hosting these acts................

Really like the Roundhouse. I generally prefer smaller venues, I think.


Interestingly, Paul Banks isn't a fan of touring. Surprised me - though I get his point about the money stuff, I've always assumed that most musicians prefer the live stuff where it's more raw and honest?

From NME:

Interpol's Paul Banks has said he wishes the band did not have to play live, with the frontman preferring to spend his time recording instead.

The comments come in a new interview with The Quietus, due to be published in full next week. Speaking ahead of the release of the band's new album 'El Raptor', Banks says that he would choose to spend more time recording and less on the road if it were financially possible.

"I would love to not fucking tour, man. I would love to put out three records a year if I didn't have to tour," Bans states. "I mean, I would tour, but all artists now have to spend less time in the studio and more time on the road because there's no money any more in records. And so I feel like records are going to change. And maybe you adapt."
