Interpol have finally revealed the details behind their first album in four years. Due out September 9 through Matador, El Pintor is described as “taut and epic in equal measure,” with the group’s core trio (frontman Paul Banks, guitarist Daniel Kessler, drummer Samuel Fogarino) joined by members of The Secret Machines (Brandon Curtis), Bon Iver (violinist Rob Moose) and Beck’s live band (keyboardist Roger Joseph Manning, Jr.) throughout its 10 self-produced tracks. (Alan Moulder mixed it for a maximum dose of melancholy.)

“Played our first US show in almost three years last night,” Kessler wrote on Twitter yesterday, alluding to the much-needed break the band took from touring after their self-titled 2010 album. “You guys were fucking great, New Haven. Onwards to the Providence.”

Check out the record’s cover art and complete tracklisting below, along with tour dates, studio footage and live versions of a couple soon-to-be singles…
