Interpol Offers Free Tour EP & Changes Line Up

Interpol announced February 27th that bass player Dave Pajo would no longer be performing with the band, explaining that it was “out-of-the-hotel, into-the-home sort of thing.” With a short note explaining “there are no personal, artistic or healthy reasons,” Pajo thanks the band, crew and fans. He says he will continue to record and perform with bands as well as solo, just not touring. Brad Truax will “perform bass duties effective immediately” in order to be ready for the European, UK and rest of the American dates for the year (see below). He has played with Soldiers of Fortune, Gang Gang Dance, Animal Collective and other bands. Interpol recently offered a jukebox on their website with 2011 touring friends School of Seven Bells and Mathew Dear. The free Tour EP has a track from each as well as “Lights” off the latest self-titled release, Interpol.
