Interpol have announced they will release their sixth studio album, Marauder, on August 24 via Matador Records. The band made the announcement today via a live press conference from Mexico City.

Marauder is a facet of myself,” Interpol’s Paul Banks says. “That’s the guy that fucks up friendships and does crazy shit. He taught me a lot, but it’s representative of a persona that’s best left in song. In a way, this album is like giving him a name and putting him to bed.”

The band will also appear on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tomorrow night, June 8, where they will perform lead Marauder single “The Rover,” which can be heard below.

Interpol will head out on a world tour in support of the new album. See the initial confirmed dates below.
