Interpol Ready To Rock With New Recruit Pajo
Rockers INTERPOL are all set for their upcoming European tour - they have recruited former SLINT guitarist DAVE PAJO to replace recently-departed bassist CARLOS DENGLER.
Dengler quit the band earlier this year (10) shortly after the completion of their self-titled fourth record, which is due to hit stores in September (10).
Pajo, who has previously worked with Stereolab and Yeah Yeah Yeahs, has now taken Dengler's place and will join the band on their upcoming European trek this winter (10). The group has also recruited Secret MAChines frontman Brandon Curtis for the live line-up to sing backing vocals and play keyboards.
A statement from the band reads, "We'd like to take a moment to introduce you to our new editions: Two fresh faces who will be joining us live on our upcoming tours. On Bass: Dave Pajo. On Keys and Vox: Brandon Curtis. We are very excited and honoured to be working with such talented individuals. Come and see why."
The majority of dates on the group's North American tour were scrapped last month (May10) after they lost their support slot on U2's cancelled 360 Degree trek, but they are still planning to head to Europe for a series of shows later in the year (10).
