On October 23, Matador will release the 2nd solo album from Interpol vocalist/guitarist Paul Banks. With Banks, Paul ditches the Julian Plenti alter-ego, & the resulting 10-song album is a tour-de- force of exhilarating minor-key intensity.
Banks was recorded in New York + Connecticut with producer Peter Katis (Interpol, The National, Shearwater, Jónsi…). The album is personal & epic, catchy & serpentine – much like your favorite Interpol albums – with Paul’s wry humor, bare emotion, + varied influences all in full effect.
